Finally Getting Fit

Happy 2016

Posted on: August 28, 2016

Look at that.  It’s been a year and almost a month since my last published post.  I really don’t even want to look back at where I was because I moved so far off the healthy eating train that I could just barely hear that whistle.

I wish I could blame it on some major life event but really there was nothing.  I got lazy and complacent. I was tired of cooking so much and so often. I got tired of the sink after sink full of dishes. I was tired of saying no thanks to invite out with friends because they were going where there was nothing I could have.

I thought maybe I could just go back to eating in moderation and be done. But I know not how to do that. And I chose all the wrong things. And the weight crept up, and the acne came back, and the joint pain returned, and the sleepless nights played once again.

And all through this year I have made half hearted attempts to get back to some clean eating. But it seemed useless and I felt defeated.

So today I’m prepping for the September round of whole30. I’ve made mayo. I’m making a compliant potato salad. I’ll be coming meat and coping veggies. And tomorrow I will want you at 5AM and go to the gym.

That right y’all. I joined a gym. It’s a 30 minute circuit training routine and you can come and go as you please. They have a different circuit each week. If I don’t go in the morning then it will be Thursday before I can get there. I went Saturday and the trainer did an excellent job of modifying the circuit for my wobbly ankle and achy shoulder.

So I guess the lazy time is over. If there was any doubt as to what fast food and poor choices was doing to my body that is pretty much gone now. I can’t eat that way. I just can’t. It’s going to kill me and the sooner I came to terms with that the happier I’ll be.
