Today is the Day

I miss this girl.  She was very active and silly...I loved her and I miss her.  Today is the day that begins the journey back to her.  I've gained some weight.  I admit it, there is no reason regretting it, stressing over it, beating myself up about it...that just makes me more tired and lazy and hungry.  So instead, I will do something about it; I will be positive, I will talk about it and I will get moving!

Eat less, move more, right?  I want to lose 90 lbs.  I am not on a diet.  I will be making positive changes to improve my health and my life.  The weight loss will happen as I make those changes.  I know it has before, however today I commit to living those changes for life!  I will not let the munchies influence my portion sizes and I will not let food and drink be THE way to celebrate achievements.  I am committing to myself and to the girl in the photo...she is me and I am her...she is just trapped in a larger body right now.

I have been reading fitness blogs a lot lately...if you know me, you know I have.  I found a super inspirational one called Honey I Shrunk the Gretchen, she is awesome and motivated me to write this post for myself.  My blog will still be about my life, but you will hear more about the healthy choices I incorporate into it.  Yay!  I have already done a workout this morning; I walked 1.5 miles with my friend Rebecca and at lunch I will spend a little time on the elliptical.  I love that I have that option so easily available to me where I work.  I am feeling good!

In other news, you may remember my rivetting post about bright colored pens, well, today's pen color is orange.  FUN!  I knew you were on the edge of your seat wondering about it!!  And yes, I tweeted about it.

Have a lovely Monday!
