Well, thanks for allowing me to share my embarassing moment with you all.:-) In many ways, it was quite an epiphany for me. My weight for the past few months has been the "pink elephant" in the room - for me, and I'm sure others. And while I've been carrying on with life, in some ways, pretending that the situation isn't dire - it was time for a wake-up call. And my five-year old nephew, in the spirit of being a child, pointed out the pink elephant.
The last couple of weeks have been good, in terms of the baby steps. I'm finally hauling my butt back onto the road of progress, and it feels good. However long it takes, I need to move in the right direction.
All this to say, that along with all the other motivation that I already have going (my new daughter and husband especially!), there seem to have been a few additions to that list over recent days. Like VERY unflattering photos of myself. The nephew incident. My unacceptable BMI results (I pulled up the ol' calculator this weekend, and was a bit astonished).
My goals for the past two weeks have been to be active, and reduce the number of times I'm eating out. This week, it's a boring but important one - my water intake. I will drink at least 3L of water everyday.
I've already met today's goal, and the day's only half over. The baby's napping - after she wakes up, we'll be going for a 5K walk to the health food store. And then, I'm going to the gym tonight.
I'm starting the week off strong - and I'm going to end it that way, too.
