Pulling Myself Back Up

Here we go again.....I am down, feeling low, can't seem to be happy but for brief moments. Time to make changes. Do things differently so that I don't feel pathetic, worthless, in general like a giant blob. Life isn't about sitting around waiting for things to happen. If I want to feel be happy I need to go out and change my day to day life.

So I have decided to make goals to improve my spiritual, physical and mental well being. First things first, time for a lifestyle change.I am convinced that I feel like crap most of the time because that is what I eat most of the time. Junk with no nutritional value. Started a weight loss challenge with a couple of friends to help keep motivated.

Lifestyle Change Goals
  • Track what I am eating everyday no matter how junky. Hold myself accountable. When I have a bad day, don't let it defeat me and start over the next day.
  • Take the stairs more. Even just going down them. Face it going up them in my shape might kill me.
  • Park further out in the parking lot even if the front row spot is available.
  • Invest in some sort of activity tracker in the next month or so. So I can see how much I am moving and challenge myself to do more.
  • Walk the dog at least 3 times a week. No excuses. Even if just for 5 minutes.
  • Be under 300 lbs by the end of 2013. (Baby steps I know but I have to start somewhere)

This is where it begins..........
