While I’ve not gained back but a few pounds, I can feel it and I am not happy with the progress, or lack thereof. I’ve spent days, weeks, and even some months making excuses or half-assing my approach to diet and exercise. Well, this morning I have decided enough is enough. No more excuses. I have 30-60 minutes every day to do something active. I have proven to myself that I can make healthy eating choices, despite what others around me are doing (temptation).
I don’t want to play the “coulda, shoulda, woulda” game, but the reality is that I could be a lot closer to my goal if I would have just stayed on track. But, alas, I am where I am – and must push forward.
The timing for this little coming-to-jesus with myself is perfect. Our book club is going on vacation this June, just 66 days from now. This is just in time for my 31st birthday. That is just enough time for me to get very serious and make more strides in reaching my ultimate goal weight. If I plan to run a full marathon this October, which I do, I need to be a lot closer to my goal weight than I am right now.
So, with this new goal of 66 days of working out and no excuses also comes a goal of blogging the journey every day – even if just a few thoughts. It’s time to get back on the right path!
