For many years I’ve been telling myself “I will lose the weight this year, I promise.” January passes, then February, my birthday, the summer, fall, and during the winter I’m cursing myself because once again I failed to keep my promise. Again.
My highschool years were a blur. I was friendly but never made any lasting friends. I even lost the ones I began with because I was so embarrased to be seen anywhere. There was this one awesome guy whom I made an exception for. We became friends quickly and even didn’t mind me hanging with him after school. I crushed on him so bad but I never had the guts to admit my feelings. I regret it so bad. And like everyone else, I haven’t seen him since.
College started and I was a mess. I got into one major, switched to another, and graduated with no plans. Years passed and now I’m here, willing to make a change after so many ups and downs.
2012 is different. I’ve made sure of it. All through January and February I’ve planned my workouts out, my eating plan, and have been slowly weening myself off sugar and processed food. Since I work sitting down I’ve made sure to get up every 1.5 hours and work out for a minute or two in the bathroom, doing squats, wall push-ups, you name it.
Since Feb 20, I’ve been working out every morning when I come home from work. My workouts are a combination of sandbag exercises and challenges from bodyrock.tv. I’ve recently bought an interval timer, yoga mat, jump rope, and sandbag to aid my workouts. My experience with these products will be laid out by my daily workout logs.
I won’t be overwhelming myself this time around. I’ll be taking things one day at a time, but my eye will always be on the prize at the end of the line. Three major events are taking place this year, and I will be ready for all of them.
- Summer! I want to feel the sand between my toes and the wind on my tummy! I want to actually enjoy the sun and not sleep through it!
- I’m starting school in August on my Architecture degree. After much deliberation, this is what I’m going to do.
- I saw my highschool crush on the bus one morning. I was too busy hyperventilating to say a word. He lives in the same place. He works nearby my house. This is my second chance. And I’m taking that bull by the horns.
I know that this will finally be the year I make this dream come true. Follow me on that journey.
