Do-Over

2 Jan

As I begin writing my 2nd annual New Year’s Resolution post, I would like to quote the editor from “Women’s Health
Magazine”: “Confidence is the key to success, because every transformation starts with the belief that you can make good things happen for yourself.”

Last year, after beginning my weightless blog, I lost a total of 40 pounds. Around Easter, I found Myself
getting a little jaded and burned out. My blogging dwindled along
with my weight loss. Now that am full circle I must confess that I
have GAINED about 13 pounds. I am not proud if this but must admit
that part of may weight gain was due to justification by exercise.
I can now run a 5-k but will guiltlessly indulge in a few slices of
Pizza afterward. On occasion that is ok, but my over indulging was
turning into a daily regimen. Hence the poundage. Poundage on the
pavement ironically lead to poundage on me. Granted my weight
increased these past two weeks because I stopped running due to my
demanding holiday schedule. The fact of the matter is that I still
love the taste of all foods and often eat for entertainment. The
drinking of my 64+ ounces of water a day has also subsided. I have
indeed fallen off of the wagon. BUT what are resolutions for!? To
resolve one’s self, of course! And that is what I aim to do. I am
here to say that despite my recent failed efforts, I will somehow
muster up the confidence to try try again. Will I stick with my
previous goal in reaching a size 10? I’m honestly afraid to commit
to that…let’s take baby steps. I am excited to hop back on the
wagon. I feel that with my new found love for running plus eating
healthy, drinking plenty of water and the plethora of fitness aps I
have on my iPhone, I should have no excuse for failing! I will
succeed and I will appreciate any support the readers I may or may
not have can give me! I hope to inspire one person that may inspire
another. We can do this, friends. Yes…we… Will! Happy New Year!
Here’s to do-overs.
