It’s never too late to start a resolution is it?
I never ever start New Year’s Resolutions, mainly because I never stick to them. Plus, I’m not trying to get into the gym with all the other resolutioners lookin’ all crazy.
I moved to North Carolina about one year ago and have really “let myself go” as far as eating right and exercising. Somehow I have ballooned up to the highest weight I have ever weighed, and I am no longer okay with it.
When I first moved here I was doing pretty good with my eating and my exercising. In fact, I looked pretty good! As I got comfortable though, I started cheating with my favorite indulgences… IPAs, wines, fast foods, burgers and of course I stopped running and working out. 🙁
I don’t regret it, it was fun! But now it’s time to buckle down. I’m going to blog about my experiences, what works for me and what doesn’t. I’m not following a strict workout plan or diet, just seeing what I can do one day at a time. I think blogging about my journey will keep me accountable.
Time for me to start!
For the past couple of weeks I started eating a little bit better, but still TOTALLY cheating on the weekends cancelling everything out.
I did start doing a couple of outdoor walks a couple of times a week, sometimes twice a day.
Today I decided to stop being lazy. I got out of my bed and I completed my first outdoor run in about a year. It wasn’t the best run I had ever completed, but I got almost 3 miles done.
Starting weight: 210 lbs.
My next blog post will be about apps I am using to help me keep track of my exercise and food/water intake. What has worked for you? Do you have any suggestions for me? Please let me know in the comments below or hit me up on social media.
