Move It

Saturday morning workout completed...CHECK!

Yes you saw that right, I did a workout this morning and I feel great. I do have to admit, I am so out of shape. Working out did kick my ass. I was out of breath, and the workout was only 20 minutes long and very simple, but I started and for that I am proud.

I don't want to celebrate too early. I have a long way to go and my commitment level has been below zero, but I'm going to have to push myself. I have to depend on myself, because no one else is going to do it for me or push me. It's the beginning toward a positive change.

It's Never To Late

"It's never to late to be who you might have been"

Not my quote, but it caught my attention.

When I grow up I want to be healthy so that I can enjoy life with my family and friends. I want to be the life of the party. I want to smile and laugh. I want to take charge of my body. I want to eat for fuel. I want energy to move. I want to dream big. I want to achieve big. I want to succeed.

It's never to late... very true.

The choices are there.

All I have to do is JUMP right in.

No more fear.

No more stalling week after week.

No more excuses.

No more "what ifs".

It's never to late, but..

Thanksgiving Already?

 Happy Thanksgiving!

I am always thankful, but on this day I am able to appreciate all the more! Family is important to my heart. Friends are the ones who keep me strong. Little moments and big moments are all part of my loving memories. Home is the best place in the world. On this day I am thankful to have another chance to show myself that I can lose weight. I can do this.

Yes I know I have been missing in action once again. Of course it's to hide out and avoid the disappointing news. I'm beginning to wonder if my posts will always be negative news about my weight.

Weight loss has not been a number one priority. Say what!? Terrible I know, but guess what guys I'm ready. I'm jumping back in with renewed determination. I know what you might be thinking... "But Christine, WTH, Thanksgiving is a few days away and you want to start new again, right now?" It sounds insane, but for me, it feels like the right time at the wrong time.

Did I mention I'm having Thanksgiving lunch at our home with both sides of the family? Nerve racking, but I'm excited! Feeling a little pressure, but I'm not stressing it!

This weekend we had snow and my kiddo thought she'd have a blast playing in the snow.
