It’s been a long time that I have been on this journey… if you can call it that. I have been so consumed with trying to survive, that LIVING has become an after thought. I was so proud of how far I had come and how hard I was willing to work to get there… and am so sad to admit that I am lost now. I can’t tell anymore if I lost my mojo because I wasn’t seeing results, or if it’s just because I got lazy. I want to believe that there is some alternate universe that has a greater gravitational pull than my ability to overcome… but the TRUTH is that I am not taking care of myself. I have too many excuses to mention, and have let very miniscule things de-rail my progress.
I am hopeful that this moment of solemn honesty will be just the thing I need to kick my own ass into gear! I am making plans to get back into the swing of things! I have to. I really enjoy being healthy and especially like working out… REALLY, no lie! I feel so much better when I am active and eat right. I have to find a new groove and work that shit out!! I refuse to be mediocre, overweight, and unhealthy any longer. Take this as your warning… and consider your ass in check! Get it together woman! That is all… for now!
Full speed ahead!! Got on Tumblr for the first time in a while this morning and I know it was for a reason. Ben Davis @bendoeslife is in town for his DoLife Tour. I have always been so inspired by his story and to have the opportunity to run with him would be great! So, I am going to do it. I am going to bite the bullet and run my first 5k, ever. Forget the fact that I haven’t done anything fitness related in months… why not now??? I probably won’t set any records, I will definitely end up walking at some point, but I will let the inspiration carry me when my legs don’t want to. I have to start somewhere and this is the perfect chance to do so.
So… Benny Boy… let’s do this shit!
Today rocked my socks off!! Not only did I kick ass on my Humanities final, I also confirmed my thoughts aout this Detox I have been on… these ass-tastic shakes I have had to drink have helped me lose 5.1 pounds in 9 days!! That is fabulous! I feel great and cannot wait to be able to … WORK OUT!!! I also found out that I have lost seven inches in my waist in 10 weeks. So proud!
First workout will take place tomorrow morning. Details to come…
Prepping lunch and snacks for tomorrow … this a celebratory post … to the last of the poop flavored shakes!!! Good riddance!
I must say… this wasn’t as difficult as I thought it would be. The worst part was the nutrient rich shakes I have been having to drink/gag/choke down. That stuff is sooo disgusting. The nutritionist said they were bad… but I had no idea! Straight poop, folks!
On the upside… I get to start hitting the gym again! I cannot wait to sweat it out! Seriously! I am a not a gym rat by any means, but my body misses the action. Weigh-in tomorrow, and waist measurement… I need to measure the rest of this fabulous mess I got going on… because shit is about to go down! I am ready to turn this mutha out! Update tomorrow… until then, night Tumblrrrrssssss!
Food, exercises, quotes, ANYTHING. Reblog, I need more blogs to follow!
