Happy Wednesday to all you Hump Day lovers! I don’t know about y’all but I have been loving this fall like weather. So much more bearable.
So now that I am coming down from my #NuunHTC hangover, I’ve been thinking really hard about what direction to go in. I even got to thinking about my little blog and what it is even classified as. Is it a running blog since I run sometimes? Is it a healthy living blog since I’m trying to live healthier? Is it a weight loss blog because I am documenting my weight loss? I don’t know! My blog is my blog and it is just tales of a girl (me) on the go!
The more I got to thinking about it the more I needed to stop a do a self reflection. As you may or may not know, I lost 57 pounds in the past three years and through a major struggle of legit food addiction, obsession over the scale, busy lifestyle, lack of support, and overall bad choices, I have gained my weight back. Earlier this year I busted out a 28:35 5k which was wicked fast for me. But then I let myself go and busted out some serious poundage. It is a sad revelation when your workout clothes barely fit anymore.
So today after reading some sweet comments and emails and looking back at my Nuun HTC pictures and being slightly disgusted with what I saw I have decided to take a new direction both on the blog and in my real life. <—sad how we have to distinguish the two.
I went to the grocery store tonight to stock up on lots and lots of healthy groceries so that I will no longer have the excuse of not having a healthy supply of food around. I drove over to the gym that I went to as a member of the Biggest Winner and created a membership. I opened my notebook and wrote down normal, realistic, empowering, and achievable goals for myself. Now the only thing that stands in the way of a healthy me is me. And I’m a strong fighter.
I am determined to lose my weight (plus more) once again but this time keep it off for good. No one wants to be lukewarm…sometimes hot and sometimes cold. I want to be a hot momma all the time. Ya dig? So this blog may not focus so much on running in general as I will begin documenting a transformation from flab to fab. Are you with me? The blog may have a lot of posts on my struggles with eating right, making time for exercise, battling food addiction, developing a healthier self esteem, and learning to be a true athlete and runner. Hopefully you will join me for this scary ride.
I’ve done it before and succeeded. Now I just have to succeed in keeping it off. It will be a lifetime battle but it will be so worth it. Because I am worth it. Plus, I have to look super hot in my college graduation pictures this spring. Get you some.
