A Transparent Moment

Transparent moment: I’m out of shape. Point blank. Period.

I was telling my husband the other day that my energy is pretty much kapoot these days and I couldn’t figure out why until recently. I sleep pretty well (at least try to), my stress – while high – is managed, I work out (albeit not as regularly as I should). So, what’s the problem?

It’s the weight. That extra weight that I’m carrying around after two kids, crazy amounts of stress from my previous career and eating at crazy hours has finally caught up with me.

It’s true what they say about the extra weight being the catalyst for so many other issues. I’m here to tell you that they were spot on, so what now? I feel like I start and restart, and restart again this whole fitness/improved health journey all the time. So much so that I’m sick of it.

I need accountability. I need someone to whip my butt into shape and you know who that is? Me. It’s me. I accept full responsibility for what I’m doing or not doing. I accept the fact that I’m eating dinner at 10pm at night sometimes because I’m too busy during the day to get it started earlier. I accept the fact that I would rather sleep an extra 30 minutes most days than get up and go walking.

Well, today that changes. Today I challenge myself in a different way. The scale is gone. The bad habits are gone. My goal is to take this day by day. My goal is to make one lifestyle improvement change every day until I reach my desired results.

Here’s to me and my restart…
