Why am I here?
Well, it's coming time for New Year's resolutions. While I'm not a big fan of that whole tradition, I can appreciate where a new year can be a fresh start. So, here I am.
In September of 2006, I rejoined Weight Watchers for a third time, determined to lose the excess weight and get in shape before I turned 30. I joined a gym and started working out for 1-2 hours, 3-5 times per week. I was on track with my eating, even through the holiday season. I kept a blog of my progress on my MySpace account. It was encouraging, and my friends were supportive. I got down to 140 pounds, and a size 8. I was in the shape of my life for my 30th birthday, April 2007.
I graduated fall '09
That next fall, feeling renewed and invincible, I returned to Oregon State University to complete my bachelor's degree. Between the stress of school, and the lack of time juggling my whole life, the gym fell to the wayside. My food choices started to fall back into old habits of bad choices. Here I am, a few days away from the start of 2011, and I'm dreaming of being healthy and fit, once again.
So, this blog is dedicated to keeping me focused on reaching my health goals, once again. It won't be easy, and it won't be quick...but I know I can do it!
