After my post about being a bit lazy with activity over this past winter, I was really motivated to get back out there and get my sweat on! This may sound dorky, but sometimes I go back to my posts a day or two later and read them (this is when I proof read them, AFTER they are posted, cause I’m a moron and have no patience to do it beforehand) and then read the wonderful comments you all leave me. Well that post kicked my butt….
I went and signed up for a gym membership!! That’s right folks….101 lbs lost and a ½ marathon later and I am now a proud member of Gold’s Gym. :)
|Sorry...I just couldn't help myself. I felt this picture needed to be here.|
Somehow or another I’ve even managed to get up at 6 am twice and go get a workout in before work. HOLLA! I usually do the stationary bike and some weights.
And as you can see by the fancy little widget on the right hand side of this here blog, I (finally) joined Dailymile! It's pretty freakin' sweet if I do say so myself. I can always let you peeps know when I be working on my fitness (what other lines or quotes can I steal?? Hmmmm)
I can’t thank you guys enough for all the wonderful comments and support. You have no idea how happy it made me to see so much support and to know that I’m not alone. I think sometimes it’s hard for us to talk about excessive drinking or eating because so many people look at you like you’re an “addict with a problem!”…well duh it’s a problem, but not one that needs a rehab vacation and 12 steps*.
I’m not being perfect (damn you Sour Cream & Onion Pringles!) and I’m not back to being “Sunshine Suzi” (was I ever?) 100% of the time, but I am getting back to feeling like myself and am being much more mindful of my choices! Which of course makes me feel better about everything in general!
With that said…we have the darts banquet tonight, so I will probably *not* be mindful of my drinking, but this one of those times where that is socially acceptable. ;)
*Please note, that if you do have a drinking (or any addictive related) problem that I strongly encourage you to seek professional help. There is no shame in seeking help for where it is needed…it can only make you a stronger, better person!
