I am really happy that I started my journey of a healthy lifestyle change even if I didn't reach my goal of 100 pounds lost in a year.
It really helped to have support from my boyfriend Todd. I hated jogging at first but after he showed me that it was just mind over matter. I realized that I had a lot of emotional set backs while I was exercising and he helped me break free of my "word prisons". He helped me feel comfortable at the gym and even showed me how to lift weights. Now we are both so much healthier because I exercise so much and he is all about his biking lately. Don't even get me started on the portions sizes that we used to eat! We would eat a whole brick of cheese and a whole pack of crackers AS A SNACK! That was after breakfast lunch and dinner. Now I have a much better idea of portions and I measure all my food out before I cook it. I still calorie count using caloriecount.com. I love that website! It completely opened my eyes to what I am eating.
Goals for 2012:
- Start going to school so I can learn and support myself.
- Get to the 140's or 150's.
- Introduce more people to my practice.
- Run another 5k and maybe even do a 10k race (need to train).
