Can I get a little personal with you guys?
Something happened when I turned another year older this year. I mean it, all of a sudden my metabolism ran away and I can't seem to find it. It may have to do with the fact that I received a text message from Jack in the Box last week telling me to come in for a Monster Taco. Or the fact that I ate chips in salsa in the deer stand for an hour on Saturday. It could possibly be that I consume more carbonated drinks than water.
I am not saying that I am overweight. I am saying that I am personally not happy with myself right now. I can see it in photos. I can feel it in my clothes. I haven't exercised in God knows when. I just feel gross. I have never been one to weigh myself every single day. I have always gone with how my clothes fit. I had to step on a scale when I had a doctor's appointment last week and seeing the number made me cringe.
After I got over the scale shock, I told myself that is was time to change my habits. My old ways are not cutting it anymore and it's time to get healthy, cut out the junk and get myself back on an exercise routine.
I am not going on some crazy diet or planning to work out seven days a week. I am focusing on cutting out two tacos for $.99. I am waiting for the arrival of Beachbody's T25 and Physique 57. They should be on my doorstep this week. My goal is to ease back into it. Work up agility again because right now, I am the most out of shape I have ever been in my life. It's embarrassing.
Truth is, I got lazy. I made excuses. I gave myself reasons why a drive thru was better than a salad at home. I programmed my brain to think I was too busy to go to the gym, take a walk or break a sweat.
Those days are over...hopefully. I am determined to feel comfortable with my body again. I just wish I would have kicked myself into gear months ago because starting a lifestyle change so close to the holidays might be a tad bit tricky.
I know I can do it. I am The Little Engine that could. I am ready for more energy, my jeans to button without sucking in and doing an up and down "squat" to stretch them out and to eliminate Mexican food comas.
I will keep you guys posted on the videos I am going to start doing and will hopefully report glorious reviews in a few weeks. Until then...wish me luck!
