For almost 3 weeks now I've been saying that I was going to start blogging again! I've been slacking on getting started writing again, mostly because well... I just have been lazy! A lot has changed in my life over the past few months and when I have free time, I kinda just want to relax and not do a darn thing! Not a bad thing, but I need to start holding myself accountable for ALL the things I need to accomplish or set out to accomplish. PERIOD!
So after my workout this morning, I figured that there was NO better time than the present to get back to blogging before I started my work for the day! Quickly, let me give you an update for those who haven't been following my progress via my facebook & twitter updates.
My weight loss total officially BACK up to 93.8 lbs. YES, you heard me correctly... BACK up! Last year, on the surface seemed like it was great... a storm was brewing inside of me that manifested itself into some backsliding, weight gain and lack of productivity! Those of you who know me very well, know the damage that storm caused and also know that my recovery from the storm has been slow in some areas and fast in others (lol)... but the recovery has been TREMENDOUS! God has blessed me with a new resolve... a new focus... a new motivation... and that is ME!!!
God has also blessed me with a NEW starting line-up on my team! LOL I'm sure you'll hear more about that in future blogs... but I can say that Teddy P definitely hit the nail on the head when he made "When Somebody Loves You Back." (thanks again for my song papi)... Love definitely has it's challenges but I'm loving the fact that for the first time in my life, I don't hear that voice in the back of my head constantly telling me to "jump ship." That I don't have to LOOK FOR ways to justify why I love him and want to be with him TO MYSELF... I'm not having these internal battles on whether I am doing what's best for me or if I'm doing more than I should for someone. I do it because I want to and when there's a problem, I am comfortable talking to him about it because he's proven that he is open to working through it together. Even if that means one of us has to admit to having some flaws. I could seriously go on for DAYS about how great he is, but I'll stop here!
So that's my update for now! Weigh-in is on Saturday mornings, so I will do my best to get at least that weekly blog in to update you on how the progress is going. I will try to post my workouts at the end of the week too since I know doing it every day would probably be something I wouldn't be able to keep up with! I also plan to start sharing some recipes again and hopefully make some time to do more cooking videos! As I continue on my journey to that goal weight, you will probably hear some work, personal, & life in general type stuff in my blog... I'm only human and my journey to that goal weight is going on within the context of my everyday experiences!!
