Let’s Get Going

A new year is here and I’m committed to losing weight, getting strong and getting healthy. The key for me is staying focused. I have to really want to change and I do. The reason I do is because I am so miserable the way I am. I don’t have clothes that fit. I get short of breath easily. I’m tired. I’m depressed. I hurt a lot. I’m lazy. I don’t get the things accomplished I want to because it’s too much effort. I need energy. That only comes from eating well and exercising.

I’ve started slowly with exercising. In the past I have allowed injuries as a point to stop exercising altogether. So my goal is to try to avoid overdoing it (as I usually do). 10 minutes a day on the elliptical is my starting point with 2-3 times a week of some minimal strength work. Jillian, I love you, but I’m just not prepared for the Shred.

So right now… I will focus on the positive. I am moving forward. I am progressing in the right direction no matter how small. I am tracking calories. I have restarted this blog. I am exercising more than I was. I have made a vision board. I still follow Biggest Loser on TV, in email, on Twitter and Facebook. I follow those that inspire me to keep on the right path: Jillian Michaels, Bob Harper, Alison Sweeney, Tara Costa, Heba Salama, Ada Wong, Matt and Suzy Hoover.

Above all, I ask God for strength. I ask that my journey to better health does not distract me from things that are more important.
