It’s been over a year, and I have decided to pick up blogging once more. More than anything, this has to do with keeping myself accountable for my own well being. I am still dealing with my depression, but I have decided that I need to work on physical fitness. The other day I got on the scale and was horrified at what it was telling me: 309. A mere three years ago, I was around 240. That is insane folks. There are reasons (excuses, really) for how this got out of control, but I can’t help but feel that it has a major bearing on my mood.
So I am shifting gears as of today. I’ll still mention mental health in passing, but this is all about losing weight, exercising more, eating better, and becoming healthier. There is more to come, I promise. Expect a visual makeover, for one.
In the meantime, I will leave you with this. Today is Wednesday, and I “started” on Sunday. I have not killed myself exercising, nor starved myself. Instead I am getting back into shape slowly, and eating sensibly (more on both later.) The result: according to my handy dandy app, I have lost 7.2 pounds so far. Eat your hearts out, Biggest Losers.
