30 Days of Me Day 20
Day 20--A Hobby of Yours
OK, so I am about to out myself and I am doing this for a reason..accountability. You see a Hobby I have had is working out, I love it and I need it and I have done it for a long time, since my early 20's I have always engaged in some sort of exercise. I am not very talented at crafting, sewing, knitting or any traditional hobbies but I have always used my "me" time, to exercise. I have many motivations, health being one. My mother died suddenly at age 47 of a heart attack, my grandmother died at about 51 of a hear attack as well. But if I were to be completely honest and that is my intention I exercise because I am vain. I want to look good and I want to fit in my clothes and I love how it feels to work out. I was never what you would call skinny, and I am curvy I have a big butt and big boobs but have always had a very little waist...so here is why I am outing myself. I need to admit that I have gained weight, a lot of weight. I finally got on a scale this morning and drum roll please....189 lbs, yep..you heard that right. I am 5ft11 but that is still WAY to heavy for me. I have never been this big before and all I can say is that since Oct last year something stressful occurred in my life and I have been eating ever since. I still exercise, everyday and thank goodness I do or who knows how big I would be but I am telling you all this because I am holding myself accountable for this weight gain and I am now determined to get back on track. My hubs, who I love so much and who loves me know matter what, could care less. The only thing he cares about is me being happy and he realized that me being heavy does not make me happy. He will do whatever I need him too, and right now I just need his support and I know I have it..I am a lucky girl to have such a man.
So right now for the next few weeks I am doing the walk from hell, I live on a hillside and I have been running down the hill and trying to run back up..it is steep, I will take a pic and share it with you soon. I am hooking up my Wii Fit again and doing the 30 day challenge again..and I am going to call the gym and get a trainer as soon as I lose the first 10 pounds. I know how to do this, I will do it and I will keep you all updated. I just wanted to share this with you all and any support would be really appreciated! If anyone else is on this journey and need a buddy let me know..we could encourage one another! I will post a before pic here and I will post one every week or so to see what type of progress I am making. Little hard to tell in that pic but I will try to find a better one.
