Tonight while reading my cousin Stephanie's blog (Thanks Steph) I decided, like her, that if I talked about my issue than I might be able to work on it rather than continue down my current path. I am not going to make any excuses, I got here all by myself. When I was younger I could literally eat anything I wanted without gaining any weight and I never had to exercise, I was always really thin. Now sure, I did activities in school that kept me active, but I have never liked exercising so I never worried too much about it.
First...I am really tired of being overweight. I told my mom as a kid that I was never going to be overweight, and I wasn't for a long time, but WOW have I eaten those words in the last several years.
Second...I have an addiction to TV, and I really like the show "Biggest Loser", however, for the last 8 seasons I have sat my butt on the couch while eating junk food and saying "I really should be working out while watching this". I also really like the new Dr. Oz show and he is a great motivator.
Third...I want to be a better, healthier role model for Ethan. He has already picked up some habits that Jeff and I have had and I want to curb them before they get out of hand.
So tonight I started...I put on my new pair of running shoes and I watched biggest loser while doing my first Couch to 5k workout. From here on out I will be working on changing my Coca-cola habit back into a water habit, exercising regularly and eating healthy foods so that I can be a much happier person with myself and pass those habits onto Ethan.
Wish me luck, it will be a bumpy ride.
