2015 – Time to Shine!

I am experiencing something of a rock bottom. Well I would rather phrase that in a more positive way, but in addition to focusing on the positive changes that I plan to make, I need to realize the hole I have dug myself into and the steps that brought me there. Since my move my weight has creeped up and I have gained about 15lbs since the summer (and I have probably rounded that up to an even 20 with the holidays but I am not getting near a scale until I have done some work). I have a million excuses that I make to myself, it’s not that bad, I’m going through a breakup, I’ll start tomorrow, just one more time, I’m tired, It’s OK it’s the weekend, etc.

But now I am stuck here with a big belly, low energy and feeling pretty crappy about the whole thing. I am not going to wallow in things at this point, but I am going to take action and get myself back to where I want to be, to where I am really myself.

I started this morning by walking to work, it is a brisk 15-20 min walk and I will repeat it for the way home. I am also having a Vega smoothie with fruit for breakfast. I plan to drink a lot of water and tea today as well.

My goals for the month of January are as follows:

  1. Keep a positive attitude
  2. Transition to eating clean
  3. Drink lots of water
  4. Drink less booze
  5. Read 4 books
  6. Go on 2 good hikes
  7. Practice Ukulele every day
