My journey from fat to fit.

I got rid of 50, now I'm working on the last bit. I updated my tracker to reflect the new, smaller goal. I know I can maintain because I've been maintaining the 50 pound loss, but I want to see an 80 pound loss in the end. At that point I'll decide if I want to see a skinnier me or if I'm fine with what I looked like when I graduated high school 20 years ago.

I got rid of 50, now I'm working on the last bit. I updated my tracker to reflect the new, smaller goal. I know I can maintain because I've been maintaining the 50 pound loss, but I want to see an 80 pound loss in the end. At that point I'll decide if I want to see a skinnier me or if I'm fine with what I looked like when I graduated high school 20 years ago.

I've had excuses before, I even had legitimate ones. I got rid of the clutter in the house, the medical issues in the family, the credit card debt and the toxic apartment. I no longer have excuses.

I control my vitamin D deficiency with supplements. I have a beautiful park with walking trails in the backyard, I have some active video games. I have 2 elementary schooled kids I need to be healthy for.

I may live in an apartment, but it has a south facing balcony, I am growing a garden in pots again this year. I love fresh vegetables whenever I can get them, especially right off the plant. My garden consists of container sized vegetables and herbs. I started a bigger garden at my Mother's house since she has a backyard that can support bigger plants like melons and squashes.

I won't let excuses rule my life, every excuse can be overcome. An excuse is just a challenge to figure out how to do something different.

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is to be able to buy a bra off the rack at Target again.

I'll take a new picture of myself once every 5 pounds to see my progress.

Making exercise part of my normal routine whenever I can fit it in, which is more often that you'd think.

No mindless snacking, especially at night when it's time to relax.

My Program:
I've been watching my food intake with SparkPeople and getting some exercise. I walk in the park whenever I have time which happens more often during the school year. I'm working on 10,000 steps a day.

Basically it's less junk food and more movement.

Personal Information:
I'm a Minnesota mom of 2 elementary school aged kids with a helpful husband that hides his junk food if it comes home.

yup saw Fat Head and LOVED it!! it was a fantastic film that basically put the finger back on the consumer. yes the food IS unhealthy but at the same time, it all falls back on our personal choices. At the same time, I would certainly think twice about eating there in any great quantity especially when training for an athletic event since Garbage in= Garbage Out applies. You cant put sand in your motor oil and expect your engine to purr.

Thank you for commenting on my blog "What the heck is wrong with me?". I did get some decent sleep finally on Wednesday night, but last night only 6 hours. Going to try to rest up this weekend and see what happens. I'm also taking my Vitamins in case it's that. Just covering all my basis. We'll see what happens!
