Day Two

Posted: March 22, 2012 in Uncategorized

Hello 🙂 Today was a nice day. I was actually able to manage sneaking my workout in before work. I did 1.8 miles on the treadmill yesterday. Not too bad for starting over… And then today I did 2 miles on the stair climber thing. I have no idea what the technical names are.

I always find it so funny that halfway through my workout I’m talking myself through quitting the 30 minutes of cardio early. Is it really that hard to just do 1/2 an hour of blood pumping sweaty goodness? Not really. Yet, everytime I step on a cardio machine, I’m anxiously awaiting the second I get to step off of it. But I managed to push through.

Endurance has always been one of my shortcomings. That’s why it’s taken me so long to get a degree (still have like 2-3 semesters left and I’ve already been in school for 4 years). I’ve never stuck to a diet plan or weight loss goal or fitness goal EVER. That’s why this time, it’s so important. I need to not look at it as a test of endurance but a lifestyle change. I need to remember that feeling I had coming out of the gym after having sweat so hard and relish in that. That amazing feeling of sweat pouring down my body. Every pore oozing out what has been poisoning me for months. I love that feeling.

Day One

Posted: March 20, 2012 in Uncategorized

I know, how cliche right? Starting a weight loss blog? Well it’s not for “my readers” not that I have a huge fan base anyways. This, instead, is for myself. I want to be able to track my progress and to be able to have a reason to hold myself accountable.

I’m not particularly motivated this time around. I mean I work 40 hours a week and go to school full time. That doesn’t leave much time to do anything and then factor into that my social obligations: friends; roommates; boyfriend; family. I lead a very busy life.

But that is why I need this. I need so much to be able to have a before and after picture, to be healthy and to feel free from this prison that is my body. I want to be a force to be reckoned with and not just simply a bump on a log. I am determined to get through it this time, to get it right, to push myself and force myself to want something better than just ehhhh…

That is why, I’m making a promise to myself and to all of you that I will do this! My blog will hold me responsible and my friends will encourage me to get there!
