Welcome Back! If you’ve come back to check for another post, thank you. If this is your first time, I highly recommend reading my first post, I may make a little more sense.
Before I begin, I love that WordPress has a delay option. I can write a post and set it to be released at a later date. This is great for me as I’m often inspired in spurts and not continuously. I also seem to have time to write in spurts, not continuously…surprise surprise.
Anyway…A Journey to Fit
This is going to be a hard post for me. I’m putting out there how unfit I currently am. My hope is that by posting where I’m starting and where I’m going I will feel bound to the goal by you all. Being bound to myself hasn’t been enough in the past so hopefully you all can help me. I will also promise you all that this will not turn into a health and fitness blog, I’ll just keep you up to date with how I’m doing.
April 1st, the start of my journey. About 8yrs ago I was weighing in just under 130lbs and was wearing a size 4. Since then, I’ve had 3 kids and that hasn’t been too nice to me and I haven’t been too nice to myself. When I weighed in I was 173.6lbs. Yes…I have gained 43.6lbs and it doesn’t look good on me. I wear a size 10/12 depending on the fit. I have learned that it is not the number on the scale I should be chasing, but the inches, and more importantly how comfortable I am in my skin. It’s also important that the numbers don’t consume me. For that reason I will only step on a scale and measure myself on the first day of every month, that is also when I will catch you all up on my progress.
So April 1st: 173.6lbs, 38in waist, 43in booty, 14in arm, 26in thigh.
Goal: To feel healthy
Any tips or tricks or words of encouragement you all may have I welcome them.
Until the next spurt of time and inspiration…
