It’s time to get back on the healthy train again. I’ve been through a lot this summer. I joined a kickball league for fun and exercise over the summer. 2 practices in I was practicing sliding into base and I sprained both my foot and ankle. Not just one or the other but both. Needless to say I’ve been hobbling in pain for almost 2 months now. I’m going to start slowly just working my arms and upper body. My ankle can’t do walking for long periods of time but I’m going to try 10 minutes here and there on the elipitical.
I was looking at wedding dresses earlier. I don’t want to look fat in mine. I want to try to get down to at least a 14/16. Ideally I would like to be a 10/12. Right now I’m a 18/20 so it’s doable.
I started out today with a fruit protein shake. I think I’m going to go back to doing www.sparkpeople.com again. When I was recording what I was eating I was more conscious of my actions. It’s time for a change and this time I’m determined to make it stick.

Yesterday was picture and Measurement day to show progress for month 1. So far I am 8 pounds and almost 12 inches total down.
I took a picture today at work and didn’t hate the way I looked. It was such a good feeling to have. A lot of drama happened today and I’m exhausted but I still forced myself to workout on the elliptical. I’m glad I did. It shows me that I’m dedicated to what I am trying to accomplish. Now I am just trying to motivate myself to take a freaking shower. It’s harder than you may think.
All I have to say is I am proud of myself.

Week 4 is recovery week. I’m actually starting to miss all of the physical activity where I burned 600 calories at a time. I’m ready for all of this excess fat to be gone and I’m really excited that I found an exercise program that I’m actually interested in. I can honestly say I never thought I would enjoy exercise. These dvd’s are great at providing a distraction so you don’t realize how long you’ve been going.
A couple more days and it will be time for my weigh in and my first month pictures. If I compare myself in the mirror to my startup pictures I’m definitely see a difference. It’s a really exciting feeling.
I’m really looking forward to the time when all the things I’ve been saving fit me again. I have some super cute clothes I’m excited about.
All I can do is keep working at it!!

Okay I’m back in the game. I started working out again. Right now I’m in the middle of p 90 x and week 4. So far I’m down 6 pounds and over 10 total inches. I never thought I’d say it but I actually like this exercise program. It’s not the same stupid exercises every single day. I love the fact that I get to do something different. I don’t even mind that I am working out 6 days a week.
Right now I’m doing with my roommate. Having someone to hold me accountable makes me that much more motivated. We take pictures of improvements once a month and we do measurements weekly. I’m actually excited to see but I’m going to look like after the first 90 days. I already feel a drastic improvement in my strength. Is it wrong that I’m thinking I might do an additional 90 days of p 90 x once this round is complete?
I just downloaded the wordpress app so I can speak my blog posts. This makes it a lot more fun and I’m hoping now I can keep up on my daily or every other day or every few days posts. Well that’s all for this post. Thanks for reading and thanks for the support of everyone around me.
