Something Different

So I'm back sooner than last time! Hooray! We're kind of getting there. Things are different. For awhile there, I lost my motivation and wasn't working out at all. I have an issue with sticking with a plan for longer than a week. I didn't stick with Insanity. I'm not going to give it up totally but I am for now to focus on other things. Part of the problem with Insanity is that you have to be in shape before you even start it. There's so much cardio and I wasn't keeping up. So I'm going to try something else for a bit and then go back to Insanity. See how that works out for me.

I keep saying that I want to do this or I want to do that. I'm tired of saying it. I need to stop saying and start doing. I said for a long time I wanted to go back to school for my Master's degree. Well I finally stopped saying it and I started one! I applied, did the FAFSA, agonized if I could afford it and then last week, I started. So far so good! I also keep saying I want to get better. It's very vague but it encompasses a lot. I want to get better at keeping house and I want to get better about exercising/losing weight. I want to be consistent. I want to make the lists and cross things off as I do them, not just tear down the list so that it didn't exist in the first place.

I started school, now I'm going to focus on my exercise and losing weight. I'm going to post pictures each week. I'm going to hold myself accountable. And even if no one reads this, which I suspect they don't, I am still putting it out there so I can't just make up an excuse. I have to do something different. I'm part of accountability exercise groups on FB, I still don't do them. I can't be accountable to anybody else until I'm accountable to myself first and that's the most important part.

As of July 21, I weigh 168 lbs. Though I got on the scale last week, I'm full of liquid and food right now so I would not get an accurate weight at this moment. 168 is not the most I've ever weighed but it's close and I don't like it. I'm trying to lose 25- 30 lbs. I want to be fit.

Until next time,
