It's been an interesting month.. between finals, my new job, and my boys being home for the summer life has been busy!! I also got shingles right after finals. And I went to the Dr. and started on an anti-depressant.... I am trying to take back control of my life. About 2 weeks ago I decided that tough love is the answer! I got online and signed up for a half marathon and have been RUNNING again! :) I figure either I will train and lose weight or I will run it out of shape and attempt to not die! Either way.. I'm running the race! I managed to get back down to the weight I was in July and so.. I am officially in this month. To be honest.. I need the money... :) Money is quite a motivator isn't it?
Okay... really... I'm serious... I am going to get into the 120's this month.
So... I need to make goals and DECIDE to do it.
#1 - No sugar. Period.
#2 - WATER WATER WATER!! AT least 80 ozs a day.
#3 - NO ALCOHOL!!
#4 - 5 meals a day.
#5 - RUN!!! At least 4 times a week! Walk hills 2 days a week.
#6 - Cancel gym membership... total waste of money!
#7 - NO EXCUSES!!!
I am going to make a print out of this and put it all over the place! My fridge... my school binder... the bathroom mirror... anywhere I will see it. I know it's important that I remind myself daily.
Now... WHY? Why do I want this?
#1. Because it's getting cold and I don't fit into any of my pants.
#2 Because being small is an advantage in flight nursing.
#3 Because I want to be an example of healthy living for my children.
#4 Because I miss feeling "cute".
#5 Because I want to feel in CONTROL of me.
#6 Because I love me when I am exercising.
#7 Because life is way too short to spend it wishing for something more.
#8 TO FINISH WHAT I START!!
I'm serious!! It's on!
