My Healthy Quest

Have you ever seen a picture of yourself and thought whoaa wait a minute, what kind of tricks is the camera playing here? Well, it happened to me last night. As I was downloading my pictures from the Harpers Ferry trip I was a bit stunned by the amount of weight I put on. the past few months I admit I haven’t been exercising like I should, I ate out way too much, and well I just haven’t been as healthy as I once was. When I was pregnant with Anya my weight ballooned to about 200 pounds, yes momma liked to eat! Then I had her and I stayed stuck at around 163 and then my life went coo-coo and the weight just hung on me. Finally I had enough and started working out at my gym at work, I’d do about an hour on the treadmill a day and ate healthier foods, such as salmon, salads, veggies,etc.  The weight started to drop off and I was the healthiest I had ever been. This past year,  I could feel it creeping back on and I’m just not comfortable so instead of complaining I know it is time to jump into action! So to hold myself accountable I’m going to start journaling my journey on my site!

I want to be clear on this, I’m not obsessed with becoming a size 0 but I don’t want to feel sluggish and blah so yes, weight loss is in order, but in general I want to get healthy! Okay so I’ll start my updates tomorrow my goal is to lose a good 10-15 pounds (I carry it in the legs uggg) but this will involve me making healthier meals and cooking more along with exercise. Look for my first update tomorrow! Here is to a healthy new beginning!

  1. Best of luck – I am on a way back to healthy lifestyle. I know it is the best for me because when I eat well and do exercise I feel much better, but it seems always hard to keep on the good resolutions.
    I am with you and will follow with interest your journey, and might take here and there some ideas.
