It was a year ago that I wrote this post. One year, 37 pounds and 4 sizes. Last year I wrote about my need to get healthier and the process which brought about the start for me. Since then I’ve changed a lot about how I eat and what I eat. I exercised a bit but was really lenient on myself. My only exercise goal was to walk through the doors of the gym twice a week. Anything after that was bonus whether I did 10 min or 40. It was all good. Most weeks I managed two days. Some weeks I did three and some I did none. I vowed to never berate myself when things didn’t work out. I let myself have treats and enjoy food – especially at social functions with the knowledge that I’d pick up and keep going in the morning.
After Rob got sick I pretty well stopped exercising for a while. But we continued to eat well and Rob joined me in that and has lost some weight too.
This year I’m feeling much better prepared. I still have my gym shoes and sports bras and locker lock. I know what to eat and how to feel my best. If I can repeat my successes from 2013 then I’ll be super happy with myself.
I don’t really know what else to say here – I just wanted last year documented somehow. I want to tell myself that I’m still on the path and that even though I’ve come a good way there’s still more steps to take. I want to tell myself to keep taking them. I want to tell myself that it’s easy to reach my goal because my only goal is to keep going.
