Sometimes I don't know how personal to get in the blogosphere, but here it goes. I need to make a lifestyle change. And I need to write about it here to hold myself accountable. Weight is something I've struggled with, and I'm tired of feeling like ish.
It's easy to forgo fitness and grab whatever premade crap is available sitting at a desk or couch blogging and graphic designing. But the excuses stop today. Last fall, I lost 20 pounds, so I know it can be done. But my problem is sustaining the motivation to hit the gym and eat better once I've achieved my goal.
My 30th birthday is in October (yikes) and I want to slim down to commemorate the milestone. But mostly I just want to feel good about myself. Fitting in those skinny jeans wouldn't hurt, either. I'm far from the shape I was in when I was at the gym five days a week and running 5Ks, but I'm determined to get back there.
