Big surprise, I haven't been to a gym in a long time. I know I need to go, or do something at home... or walk... but I have just had "other things" to do. Did you know I once sat in my car and "Pinned" things on Pinterest for an hour? That was just last week... but I never seem to have time to do something about my health. Know the funny thing? I have a Board for Yoga, Inspiration, Running, and Juicing/Smoothies. And yet, I still haven't started anything... anything!

So I decided, like I said in my last post, to start on January 1st. And how does one begin such a journey? Get rid off all the crap in the house. Makes sense right? Maybe not eat it all though... but still, it doesn't need to be there. I think I will clear out my fridge and cupboards this weekend, kind of a "Spring Cleaning" come early kind of thing. I'll post how that all goes soon!

Starting something new....

So, I'm 30 years old, as of 12.04.13, and I have always been a little over weight, except when I was in High School... then I was anorexic. I starved myself, to be the thinnest I had ever been, but I wasn't fit, and I certainly wasn't happy. I've had 2 kids, a marriage, a divorce, another marriage, and have moved a million times since then, and it has not been kind to my body.

I started working a new job during the summer of 2013 working the graveyard shift. From there, in 5 months, I gained 15 pounds. There is easy access to snacks and sodas and we seem to have some kind of shift party all the time (retirement, holiday, etc.) which is usually filled with unhealthy goodies.

I'm tired ya'll! I don't want to be fat in my 30's like I was in my 20's. This year needs to be the start of something different! This year I'm going to start a program I found on Pinterest. It's a 8 week program, Weight Loss Boot Camp, starting on January 1st, but I am not calling this a "Resolution" because those have a high fail rate, and I don't intend to fail. I want to be healthy and happy, and I will do everything in my power to make it so.
