The main reason that the Racer and I started this blog was to be involved in a weight loss blogging community. In order to link to their weigh ins, we needed a blog. So, we dipped our big toes into the blogging world. If you read our early posts, you can see all the gruesome details of our weight loss journeys. Since then, the site has ceased to exist. And, clearly, so have my weight loss efforts.
Life has happened. You know how it goes, right? Major Hunk comes home from the desert. We eat out lots of yummy goodness that he has been missing. We buy a house. I stop going to the gym. And weight watcher meetings, well they became a thing of the past. And, if you have spent any time here whatsoever, you probably know that I am an emotional eater.
So, over the past 6 months, I have gained 15 pounds.
Out of 36 lost.
Now that I have had some time to ponder the changes I need/am willing to make, I'm ready to go public. The Racer and I have talked much this past week about how one of the things we need to address is that we have lost focus. During our "weight loss 2007", we were spending time encouraging one another in the journey. We were exercising together. We were sharing recipes and encouragement we found online. So, I am ready to get back at it, before none of my clothes fit me anymore.
So, I will be checking in here with all of you, my interpeeps, to put some accountability back into my life.
These are my goals for the week:
- cut soda consumption down to one a day.
- exercise at least 4 times.
- take measurements so I can track inches lost as well as pounds.
So, tell me friends, what things do you do to encourage a healthy lifestyle?
