It starts with me

I’ve been busy. I’ve been REALLY busy. I had no idea that buying a house was going to be this crazy. And that so much would be going into it. But, as long as everything goes through with the mortgage (we find out on Tuesday) it’s ours and our closing date will be April 5th.

That’s in like 3 weeks.

My diet and exercise have suffered. A lot. I’ve gained a few more pounds and I decided last night, as I was eating cookies (which doesn’t really help when you’re trying to lose weight), that the stress from this and work had to stop. Part of the reason I decided to lose weight 3 years ago was because I was gaining more weight  from work stress and I was already almost 250 pounds at that point. I do not want to get back to 250 pounds. I’m already scared of the number I saw on the scale this morning.

So, I got up this morning and ran 3 miles. Which was the best and fastest 3 miles I’ve run in a very long time. I’ve been counting my points all day and I’m hoping that by this time next Saturday I’ll be down a couple pounds. And the following Saturday? A couple more pounds.

Something has to change and it starts with me.
