So I am a stress eater. Like big time stress eater. And when I have a lot going on I could care less about what I am eating, all I care about is how easily I can get it made and in my belly. Truth. Sometimes cooking healthy is just hard and I don't want to do it.
I know all the right things I should be eating and I know all the right things I should be doing to lose weight. But I haven't done any of them in a long time. I rarely workout. Maybe once or twice a week. Because most of the time I feel like I could be doing something more important that working out. And really the only solid time I have to workout regularly everyday is 5 am. And I am not a morning person.
All of this to say I am REALLY REALLy up in my weight, it's almost bathing suit season, and I feel gross. Real gross. School has been a lot of stress and had me constantly busy. Oh and then there is work. So basically I have some pretty big excuses, even though I should have no excuses.
The picture below is from a couple months ago. I am bigger now. Oh great!
So here and now on February 17, I am going to finally get my butt back in the gym. I am throwing out all the shit in my pantry and fridge I shouldn't eat. And I am going to go get me some healthy food. I need to do this. I feel and look better when I do.
I am also thinking about signing up for a couple 5k's so that it will force me to train. I mean I can make time to run a couple days a week.
I think the one thing I wish I had was a regular workout buddy. That was what kept me working out before. First I was always with Sherry and then I had Lauren. When I know someone else is there relying on me I will show up and I will preform to the best of my ability! Now I need to learn to motivate myself!
Ok weight loss rant is over. I am getting my butt out of this chair and heading to the gym for lots of cardio and some weights! I can and I will do this!
