The first day of my healthier eating habits is drawing to a close, and I’m quite pleased with myself and how it is turning out. After a midnight workout, I set an alarm and woke up at 9 a.m. this morning, which pathetically was the earliest I’ve been up in weeks. I haven’t been sleeping well lately, but maybe the workout last night and the determination to start making a difference in my life helped me to roll out of bed so “early” today. With groceries in the fridge and pantry, it was time to start making better choices when hunger struck.

I realized earlier today/yesterday (depending on your frame of reference) that too long have I allowed myself to be unhealthy. I’ve made excuses for myself and let them allow me to make all the bad decisions I shouldn’t be making. Since I was laid off I have gained about 20 pounds. That’s ridiculous. At first I told myself that I was just laid off and deserved to take some time to relax and eat whatever I want and pretty much just mope around the apartment feeling sorry for myself. Days turned into weeks, and weeks turned into months, and here I am over 260 pounds. I share this embarrassing fact because I’m making some changes, and it’s time to be accountable for them – and this blog will help me do that.
