It's been a long time and as always when I'm away from blogging I'm usually sitting in front of the TV eating. Well....not entirely, but you get what I mean.
The last few months have been challenging. Details I will not share online, but the good news is that somehow out of disappointment and despair has come hope. A hope that the feelings I have been experiencing lately will pass and that I once again can start to focus on myself rather than others.
Today was the first time in a long time I felt motivated to watch what I eat and to exercise again. For awhile now I just haven't cared, and because of that my weight has only gone up! I have officially gained all my weight back plus 5 pounds. ugh.....
Oh well..... as my father says, it is what it is. Today is a new day. Although I didn't count points today, I know I was 'good'. I even went out for a run. Something I haven't done consistently if at all in eight months!
I do have this goal now that is in the back of my head that I'm hoping I can keep there.
60 in 6
Sixty pounds in six months.
I know that is a lot of weight and something I will not attain....but that is okay. Really 60 in 6 is just a way of saying to myself -- Sonya... kick some ass and lose as much weight as you can in the next six months. Stay focused and anything is possible.
I also have a goal to run the CIBC 'Run for the Cure' again in October. I missed running the PRIDE run because I stopped running am I'm out of shape. I'll be damned if I miss doing the cancer run too!
So here's to moving forward and leaving the past behind me. It's time I start feeling proud of myself again. It's time I start to feel confident again and happy. Are you with me people? I hope so!
