Happy Healthy Monday
Well six months of the year have wizzed by. Six month of doing nothing about this weight has been wasted. Today I officially, OMG am I gonna say it.. 280lbs. OMG I just fainted.
This is the highest weight I have been, even pregnancy weight. I am 20lbs from hitting 300lbs which at this rate WILL happen this year. Sometime in January I remember weighing 246. So in six months I have gained 34lbs. I am so ashamed of that.
As I was out an about this weekend I realzied that it’s hard for me to move around with all this weight on me. I breathe hard, move slow, and sitting down my pants cut off all oxygen off to the upper half of my body. This isn’t okay and I don’t know why I am okay with it. Well I am not okay with it but I have to be right if I am not doing anything about it? The thought of all the work it takes overwhelms me and I just can’t be bothered to do any of it. I feel…. stuck.
Now that I will be starting a new job this week there are some benefits to it. It will force me to pack my lunches, I am too far from home. On nice days there is a really nice walking trail I can go eat and walk at. Oh and there isn’t much for eating out around there so that is a HUGE plus for me. I am excited to start this job. I am hoping the people are nicer and I won’t hate going in each day.
My goal this week is simple. Do something, anything. I am going to focus mainly on food because that is key. I know for sure I will hit the gym at least once for the free workout class I am going to. I am also going to try my Taebo DVD’s I got. I would do the Walk at Home video but Mentallyinked robed me as the winner (just kidding). I might have to go to target and check them out.
Okay enough babble from me.. onto the recipe.
