Since I'm feeling optimistic today, I've decided I'm going to give this thing a shot again. I have a lot of weight I'd like to lose. Now I'm not going to get all specific here, but I will say that my first goal is 21 lbs. I've checked my weight and taken my measurements. Everything is logged in a nice little spreadsheet that will track my losses. And there will be losses. I'm that motivated today. Tomorrow may be another story, but only time will tell. I'll log my weight and measurements again on August 27th, after I have completed the 30 Day Shred. I want to see if something really happens in 30 days.
So, the 30 Day Shred is really only one part of this new journey. Brad and I purchased a gym membership earlier this year and were pretty good about going the first two weeks. That's about it. So I'd like to incorporate the gym back into my routine as well. I am going to wing it in the beginning so I can determine the best schedule for myself. I don't want to say "go to the gym at 7:00 PM" if I don't know that 7:00 PM is going to work for me. I don't want to lose my motivation by missing scheduled items or goals. So I'll ease into it.
I also spent some time this morning looking through some of my healthy recipe books, yes I have them, and found a few that I can put together for this coming week. So I made my shopping list and am planning to go to the grocery store tomorrow. I actually really enjoy "good for you" foods so I'm looking forward to it. Of course I enjoy junk food just the same, but at least it won't be like I'm eating cardboard.
