I'm so happy this is your last semester! I know the mixed emotions going on... on one hand you are excited because its the last one; but on the other, there is a growing sense of anxiety to get through it but not too fast just in case you aren't really ready yet. I am so proud of you and all that you have accomplished. I have never doubted you and can't wait to see what the future holds for you.
Today was a pretty good day for me. I'm feeling a little ~blah~ (and that's putting it nicely). I am having the hardest time finding my mojo again. I was doing so good there for a while and it has suddenly collapsed around me. Super frustrating - and whats more frustrating is how I know this is problem and yet instead of going to the gym I simply *blog* about going not going. Seriously - I'm in a flat spin and cant seem to get out. So, that being said, here is my inspirational post. This always seems to get me moving again - I LOVE this video. It is chubby girl salvation...
We have been friends for 18 years (yes, we are old and damn do we feel it!) and have a long history together. Without getting into the boring details, we went from high school friends to sisters-in-law and consider ourselves sisters for life no matter what. Part of being sisters is being there when one of us (or both of us) struggle. We have come to a point in both of our lives that we rely on each other to lose weight and get healthy. This is a change that affects our personal, family, and professional lives on some level and we have taken the steps to make it happen. Both us have been emailing, texting, call, etc to encourage, motivate, cry, or use tough love to get the other moving and into the gym or eating better. These emails are the inspiration for this blog.
I am a wife, mother, and career woman all balled into one. I tell my husband he got a hell of deal when he married me! I am a social worker by day and home body at night. I am slowly becoming more active as I attempt to achieve some fairly lofty goals. I have a desire to lose weight in a healthy and rapid way. I tend to do better on low carb lifestyles and enjoy the food MUCH more. I have a lot of weight to lose and it all has to start with the first bite and the first step. I have been around enough to know that making a complete lifestyle change is not a walk in the park but a process that requires patience, support of family and friends, and a really great sense of humor. :o)
I am momma to a beautiful 5 year old girl and I am a nursing student getting ready to graduate this December. My life is in a crazy state of change right now, so I hope to use this time of transition to make the change I've wanted and needed for so long. My ultimate goal is to be a healthy mom that my daughter can be proud of. I want to lose a LOT of weight so my goals will start small and be accomplished over a couple years, but I need this to happen. I am currently doing the couch to 5K program for exercise, but will be adding some toning and pilates exercises as well. I am going to follow a basic 1200 calorie diet plan, with low processed carbs and sugar. My weakness is nighttime eating and candy :)
