I have not been very consistent with writing in my journal. It should be easy, as I have so many thought running through my head… You see my roommate burned my house down on October 12, of last year I have been fighting with the insurance for 9 long months, and still in a hotel. What does this have to do with this sight?
Well let me tell you: Last year I have crept back up to my highest weight of 232. My cholesterol was high along with my blood pressure; and just one more blood test away for being classified as a diabetic. I lost my mother to the final stages of Diabetics. I knew I had to do something, this was no longer a vanity issue, I watched my mother go through all those lazar eye surgeries, along with the dialysis, and vein transplants, and finally amputation started.
I knew I needed to do something and NOW, not LATER. THIS WAS MY LIFE, I WAS EATING AWAY. I hired a personal trainer for 12 weeks and lost 30 lbs, but not until I stepped up the cardio to 3-5 miles of walking a day, being a ADHD Kid, I can not hang on the treadmill very long without getting board, I would go to the trails aground the lake which is almost on the way home. So that worked for me, I kept the trainer for another 12 weeks and lost another 20 pounds.
After the house burned down and the turmoil with the insurance (STILL FIGHTING THEM), All the stress, ended me up in the hospital. Now there came the weight right back on, over the past 9 months I have gained almost all the weight back. Living in a hotel, and comfort eating landed me right back here again. I have been tracking but not really using the meal planner, hard to cook in hotel room. I have been lurking around here for a while, lot of good information here.
I managed to find the exercises for the week and printed them off. And I am going to the Gym today after work; NOTHING IS GOING TO STOP ME FROM GOING TO THE GYM TO DAY…… YEAAAH!!!!
No excuses, there are only two choices, MAKE PROGRESS OR MAKE EXCUSES.
