Me and My Runners

If you haven't been following my Project 365 Blog, you might not have seen my post about getting myself back in shape. I intend to get re-aquainted with my runners this month and get active! I use to go to the gym at least 3 times a week, right after work, but over the past year I have slowly fallen out of my routine due to a variety of reasons, but now that it's a new year and I'm feeling healthy again I've decided to get myself back to the gym and lose this extra weight that has suddenly creeped up on me! I am a total chocoholic and now that Halloween and Christmas is behind me the temptation to indulge will be far less. Hubby already knows not to buy me chocolates for Valentine's Day lol. My goal is to lose 30 pounds by May 1st. Just under 10 pounds a month. That seeems reasonable and atainable don't ya think?

I know once I get back into my routine and get myself through a few weeks sugar free I'll lose those cravings for something sweet and it will get easier to resist the temptations. I love the Group Power (free weights to music class) at my gym and intend on taking that up again along with my cardio workout. Did you ever notice though how healthy food is usually much more time consuming to prepare?! Anything fast and convenient is usually not good for you and after working a full day, cooking is the last thing I want to do! Ahhh, but the rewards to a healthy, low fat meal. I felt so great a year ago and by May 1st I intend to feel that great again. I haven't said anything really to too many people because I didn't want them bugging me, but I've decided to post here to make me a little more accountable for my decision and help me keep my committment to myself. I've marked my gym time on my calendar and will do my best to keep it just like any other important event. Off to pack up my gym bag for tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by.
