(This picture serves no other purpose than that it makes me lol. I was so cute and drooly huh?)
Now, to the point of all of this. I said a while ago (yes, I did) that I would start posting my weight on Fridays. I have certainly put this off. I know it's not Friday, and I will start posting a regular "Fitness Friday" post. (I would be happy if my readers, small group that they are, would like to join in. Whatever point you would like it to serve to you is fine. You don't have to post your weight like I'm going to be doing. That's very personal. But if you want to do that too, it would be awesome!) I'm going to reveal just how pudgy and out of shape I am....okay....drumroll please....
What, you can't read that???? Okay, yes, I weigh 227 lbs. (Hello world, I now feel completely naked...)
Nobody but me (and one of my BFF's Shanna) knew what it was that I weighed. Not "fo sho". Sweetie's been trying to get it out of me for a long time. He doesn't even know. Good thing he's not a web surfer.
I'm ashamed of how unhealthy I have let myself become. Here is a list of stupid things that cause this:
1. I have a monthly gym membership that I have paid for for going on two years now. I never go.
2. I eat late at night because I have trouble sleeping.
3. If given the extra time, I take a nap rather than exercise.
4. I buy healthy food and it goes to waste because I am too "tired" to fix a salad.
5. I have lost my old habit of vitamins, lots of water, and using the alloted gym time at work (that I get to use on company time--mind you!)
The time for excuses is over. I have a wedding in less than 220 days. I have to get a handle on this SEVERE PROBLEM. And it is a SEVERE PROBLEM.
You may ask yourself "What brought this on, Minnie?" Well, I just finished watching the Biggest Loser Reunion Special. Now, for friends of mine, they know that I love. this. show. BL is awesome. Anyway, I'm watching it and realizing that I weigh as much as the contestants do! I could be on that show! I don't want to be on that show, that would be something I could never ever do. But, I can put myself out there in the world--on my blog--and have a place where I am held accountable for what I have done to myself.
I literally have my engagement picture session on Friday. It will be the LAST TIME I will be that fat. That's the mission. I choose to accept it.
See ya Friday...
Oh, and don't tell anyone what I weigh, OK?
