In May of this year I quit smoking. In May of this year I lost almost 30 pounds. In May of this year I made a declaration that I would not allow myself to live like I had been. I claimed an epiphany in this post yet here we are, six short months later and I have to do it again. Here's a list of things I've committed to and failed to follow-thru with:
- Daily Blogging - doesn't have to epic, but putting my life and day down means something, it's showing commitment to something and creates a journey that I can use to see what worked and what didn't.
- Weekly Weigh-Ins - spent over $200 to buy a scale so I can measure my progress and it's acting as a door stop right now. I claim to want the data but have missed several weeks in a row.
- Preparing Meals - In April I spent $1,000 on eating out; that dropped to under $300 a month thru the summer as I cooked in advance and made ready to grab meals and snacks. In October I spent $900 eating out because I didn't want to cook. My food prep blogs were pretty popular, I should do it again, plus I enjoy creating things. Tonight I made a Fiesta Chicken with Black Bean and corn salsa for tomorrow and it took less than an hour, definitely need to start again.
- MOST IMPORTANTLY - keeping commitments to my friends, family, and fans. I stopped texting, stopped facebooking, stopped talking. That's not okay. Speaking with an epic guy tonight really pulled at my heart strings, made me realize that I may not be doing this FOR anyone else, but that doesn't means you guys aren't going this WITH me!
Ok, pity party over. Blame game is done. I'm at 610 yesterday and I WILL BE AT 570 BEFORE DECEMBER 1. If I don't, I'm giving $570 to charity. So let's do it, 40 pounds in 25 days. Oh, and don't say it can't be done or isn't healthy, I've done it twice already so SCREW YOU GUYS, I'M GOING HOME!
Don't forget, I'm leveling up my life and need to start marking some items off!!!
