Okay, it’s time to be real. I started out with every intention of making this blog about my progress on weight loss. Somewhere along the line, I lost this and just made it about what I am not getting done. That was then.
From this point, my goal is to make my actions match my expressed desires. Therefore, I am back in gear.
Yesterday, I started an 8-week sprint, if you will. My goal is to focus for 8 weeks on healthier eating, more exercise and proper rest. Right now, I am hoping the be 30 pounds lighter by then. I believe this will help me really give my weight loss and much-needed kick in the rear to get going. Furthermore, this would put me at around my halfway mark for my goal weight.
I am looking forward to taking on this challenge because I am, for the first time in a while, truly excited about losing weight. Lately, I’ve been doing the gym thing, sort of doing the eating thing and failing miserably on the rest thing. I realize that shortcuts in any (and sometimes, all) of these things didn’t allow me to have any real progress and contributed to my lack of motivation. However, if I knock off 5 pounds and continue to lose more weight, I’m sure it will do wonders for my general attitude.
Finally, I feel like I’m back in the saddle. In the immortal words of Ice Cube, “once again, it on!”
