Mid-March Update

on March 14, 2013

It’s been a while since I’ve updated on my weight loss journey…

It’s not been easy keeping a schedule and being 100% perfect with my in-take all the time. But I’m doing a lot better than I have in the past. I thank my support system for that, I had some support before, but it definitely wasn’t this kind or the type I needed. I actually feel like someone else besides me cares about my outcome… And there is ALOT to be said about that. Trust me.

Another issue. I struggle daily with the fact that we live 25+ miles away from any type of “real” fitness centers. This might not seem like a problem to some but coming from a single income family, and doing the math it’s not pretty. To go to the gym 4 times a week the gas would cost $115/month… WOW that’s a bill around this joint. Not to mention the time for travel out of our busy lives and having to plan everything around nap time and much more…

And…

Since selling our house and buy one closer to town isn’t a very realistic choice… I decided to bring the fitness center to our house.

A Big Job Ahead !

For that reason, I bought what I know I love and lost 40 pounds with before I got pregnant with Emmett. An arc trainer (a type of elliptical trainer). It’s journey from store to able to use was quite long.

Thanks to my husband I was able to get my first workout in tonight !!

And even though I HATE being on this side of the camera… I had to put it up so I can see the change when the change DOES happen !!!
