When I started this blog, and I believe somewhere in the middle, I talked about losing weight & getting fit. That my friends, did not happen. I would work out here & there for awhile and then things would come up and I would stop. I tried eating better, keeping track of everything that I ate and the calories and such, that never lasted more than a week because it's a lot of work & I didn't always know what the calories and such were. My drivers license, which I got last year because I turned 21, says I weigh 160 pounds. Now granted, it was a guess...but it was close. Awhile ago I weighed myself & I was 185 pounds. Yep, 25 pounds, in one year. Lovely.
Now I know it's almost a new year but this isn't a resolution or why I'm starting now. I'm starting now because a new semester is starting which means I can get a gym pass. I also only have class 2 days a week which means I have a lot more free time than last semester. I am also single now, not that being in a relationship means go ahead & pack on 25 pounds. I just mean that I've been looking for something to do just for me. Something to help me start a new life. I figured why not this since I want to lose weight anyway.
So today one of my roommate's and I went to the gym on campus, got our passes for the semester, and worked out. It wasn't long today. 45 minutes maybe. But I managed to get in a couple miles on the eliptical and a little over a mile on the bike. It felt amazing. So I decided to keep a log of what I do, when, and my progress. Since I started on a Wednesday I'll weigh in on Wednesdays. I would like to eventually get back to 160. Or at least toned. Right now I just cant picture where 22 pounds would go because I'm honestly not all that big. I'm not a stick but I'm not that big either.
So every Wednesday I will post what I've done over the week and the progress I've made. Here's to hoping that this one sticks...
