Well, we all know what they say about good intentions..... I have failed miserably with my New Year's resolution to get back into shape. I could blame it on the copious quantities of snow, or the cold or the darkness. Shoot! I could find a hundred ways to rationalize my inactivity, but I won't. I've been lazy. End of story!
After struggling to zip the last pants I bought (because everything else was too tight) I had an epiphany. If I don't DO something, it's only going to get worse. At that point, I set my sights on March. Despite the dread I felt, I hauled my large arse to the gym after work Monday. I also hauled it to the gym on Tuesday. One day at a time.....
The gym scales confirmed my fears, and I am at the highest non-pregnancy weight I have ever been. Perhaps this was the kick in the pants I needed. Numerical PROOF.
I'm not limiting myself to the South Beach diet just yet, but I am packing my lunch, and eating smaller portions at dinner. I'm also forcing myself to drink an entire bottle of water each day BEFORE I allow myself to drink my Diet Mt. Dew. I can't believe how much you have to pee when you drink so much water!!!! That's a GOOD thing, right??!!
How is everyone else doing? Let's get this site rolling again......spring is on the way:)
