I thought I would introduce myself. I'm not overweight, but I will be soon if I don't change my poor eating habits! I'm really bad at motivating myself and staying focused. Sometimes I forget that I even want to be healthy. I tell myself that I really don't need to worry about it but when it comes down to it, when I eat healthy and exercise, I feel really good about myself. If I eat junk, I get depressed. I just really want to remember why I am doing this. I thought if I wrote it down maybe I wouldn't forget so quickly.
Now the upside. I have already started. I have consistently been lifting and running at least twice a week for a few months now. I have quit Dr. Pepper and have almost given up carbonation all together only because I have really noticed how crappy it makes me feel. I can't run as long and I become really mad at everything when I have too much soda. Besides that, I have done really poorly at watching what I eat. I thought I could do it without keeping track of what I've been doing but I have been failing for a few months now. So I bought a journal today and will try to track what I eat. I wont do calories for now but we will see if this even helps.
Now, I have to confess what I did last night. I was mad a my husband so I made cookies to punish him. I ate at least ten. Argggh, I'm so dumb!!
