i think i can, i think i can, i think i can....

i know, i know, i sound like that annoying ass choo choo train (yes, im a grown ass woman that said choo choo train instead of just train. whats your point???).

but, seriously, i have to get it thru my thick skull one way or another.

i have to get off my ever expanding ass and work the fuck out again. i HAVE to.

june / july 2008 --- i was the smallest i had been in my life at about a buck 70. yea, i didnt even weigh that little in friggen high school.

somehow, flashback to NOW.... yea, fucking scale saying bad bad things to me.

so i had to destroy it with a large sledge hammer and lots of screaming and saying "LIIAAAARRRRRRR" but whatev.....

so seriously, last year, my dad had a heart attack. shortly after i happened to go in for a check up, BP happened to be high that day, went for bloodwork and ta-da find out i have high cholesterol. yea. thats right. i was 28.

so my doc tells me to start exercising, take my pill, and lose weight. tells me to eat 1000 cals a day. gives me basically a speeder to help me on my journey.

apparently the stars were aligned JUST SO back then, because i started working out that day, ate 1000 calories and dropped literally 25lbs in about a month.

i looked great, i felt great, life was good.

i have no fucking idea what happened. i cant put my finger on it.

but somehow, ive gone back to size 14/16. i look like shit, i feel like shit, and UGH. i cant seem to find the motivation to DO anything about it.

im even postponing my annual doctor trip because i dont wanna hear her bitch at me. cuz i KNOW IM WRONG.


oh, and did i mention that my dad had another heart attack this year? (hes fine). and that while its opening HIS eyes to what he should do in life (he leaves on a 3 week cross country motorcycle tour next week! yay him!!!)..... im still all "meh, whatev. its not me".

yea, again i say WTF?????

so, i did get off my ass yesterday, though, and do a workout dvd. im hoping i can stick with it for 30 days. thats all im going for right now. its the 30 day shred dvd, and i wanna do the 30 days.

fuck, id be happy at this point if i can do 7. ive done 5 here and there, but i havent made it past that in God knows how long. so, hey, 7 days. then 7 more. right????

but, seriously, where can i find the damn motivation and determination to JUST DO IT??????? i know how good it feels, i know its something i need to do to ensure im here for my kids, i know all the common sense crap.

but how do i stop shutting that bitch up and listening to her??????

eeeeeeekkkkkk....... ok, its lunch time now... today im gonna try something different that i havent done in a year. im not going to eat. im going to go WALK on the bike trail instead of just sit in the parking lot watching them while i read a book and eat a big fat steak and cheese sub. YEA!!!!!

wish me luck ok?????????

I hear you, hon. I have SO much trouble trying to find the motivation to exercise every day... but I do walk 3 miles every day (to and from work) and I think that makes all the difference! And I work out whenever I can find the energy.

I just started working out again, too, and it is hard to stick with it, but I SWEAR I'm going to do it this time! Good luck to you!

Hey, I need to get off of my ass with you. I used to work out all of the time, but somewhere along the way I got to be a giant lazy bimbo.

I try to keep my ever expanding ass in control by working briskly or jogging 2 to 3 miles most days. My man likes it when my ass is fat so it's a challenge either way for me.
I think movement is the key to losing inches, but I can't drink beer or it's bloat city.
