Getting with the Program

Ok, Day 1 of my Body for Life fitness program.

First off, a couple things:

1. I’m not going to sugar coat it, I have 30 pounds to lose. Since my mom passed away I basically fed (and drowned in alcohol there for a while) my grief…and my grief wasn’t craving salads. Then, just when I shook the darkness off and got ready to commence my normal healthy lifestyle, I rolled my ankle in a big way and, believe it or not, at this age, the thing took A WHOLE YEAR to fully heal. So yeah…a whopping 30 pounds. But am I going to let that deter me? Fuck no.

2. On October 6th my fantastic boyfriend and I are going to Mexico on vacation. This will serve as my jump start to motivation. Although I won’t be at my goal weight by then, I have set a very reasonable goal of 12 pounds in the 6 weeks between now and then. I know it will be hard and I know I’m gonna have to kick some ass (namely my own), but I am totally up for it. If this works out the way I am hoping it will, you will be seeing a post from Mexico of me rockin’ a bikini.

3. I LOVE MY NEW FIT-OFAX!!!  This thing is even more awesome than I could have imagined. Granted, it’s only technically day 1, but I did my weekly planning yesterday and I just loved how everything flowed. And so far today at work I’m finding it really easy & intuitive to stick to everything and record everything.

Here’s the Fit-0fax in action on our first day

Stay tuned my peeps…it’s going to be a wild and crazy ride for the next 6 weeks!
