Update to my Journey

To bring you up to date....with Tax season and remodeling of our new office I had to take time off from my workouts...all of this ended up costing me an added 10 lbs!!

It was too easy to revert back to my old eating habits - lack of time to prepare the proper foods - I had begun eating fast foods just to get something to eat before the next client comes in...Stress from overworking and trying to do as much of the remodeling as I could...all of this lead me back down that road of unhealthy eating and lack of exercise.  In January I weighed in at 154 - then by the time April came, I weighed 164 lbs.

I went thru a couple of weeks of depression, denial, and just down right mad at myself - finally I was able to forgive myself and make the decision to change - AGAIN!

Today is May 23, 2012 and I am back on track again.  I started back to bootcamp (Scenic City Bootcamp) and began my healthy eating habits.  I workout everyday - 60 minutes of bootcamp, walking as much as possible, and once a week personal training.  I weighed today at 162 lbs - 2 down and 27 more to go!

Now, most of my friends and family know that I am a smoker - but to my surprise - my bootcamp instructor (Kristen Harvey) was completely taken back when she found out!  I started taking wellbutrin on Monday to try to quit...I am supposed to put them down on Saturday - I will keep you posted on my progress with this.

To others out there who have given up...forgive yourself and get up off your keesters and do something!
