Start now

In spite of my cheery and upbeat post yesterday, I didn't do much. I spent about 4 hours grading finals and I still have 2 more to do. Ended up not eating lunch until 3 pm and that was cheese, salami, and crackers. It was good but not much and kind of late. Also, drank 2 Redd's Wicked Mango - yum!!!!! But then was a little tipsy for the afternoon. Didn't walk the dogs; my excuse was rain but I just didn't feel like it. Didn't run; my excuse was my foot, but really I just didn't feel like it. Took two naps; my excuses were 1) I needed a break from grading and 2) I needed to rest from the Redd's. Do you see a pattern here? Because I sure as hell do. That is why this motivational piece spoke to me so loudly. No more fucking excuses. I'm over it. I need to start being accountable and taking responsibility for the choices I make. The Choices!!! Not the Excuses!!!!

So, enough of that. I'm still sore from Saturday's WOD, the abs are screaming and you use your abs for almost every movement you make. Awesome sauce!!!! I had been debating about heading to Crossfit this morning, but I think I'm going to pass on that. I'm going to roll out my left leg/foot and put on my new shoes and jump on the treadmill for a bit. I want to run, but we will see how that goes. I will also be walking the dogs today, whether it rains or not. They are going crazy and I'm tired of my crappy excuses. Unless hubby goes to watch the game. Hope not, but if he does, I'll deal with it.

Also, going to start working on my room today. I'm going to go to Target to see if they have storage stuff on sale, which I'm pretty sure they do. Then I'm going to head over and start working on my room. I want to organize the storeroom, hang new things, straighten it up and organize it more. I cannot stand it the way it is and I have to do something.

Also, I joined a private group with a coach from Crossfit to help me get back on track and lose some weight. I did this when she was here and I was starting to feel amazing and see results, but for some reason or another I stopped. So now she's doing it from across the country. I'm excited about that because I need a little guidance and motivation. You would think I would be an expert after all this time, but I am not. So I am excited about that. Had to weigh myself this morning and it was the highest weight I've seen in easily 20 years. 214.4!!! Yikes!!!!! Definitely time to reign this in and get it under control. I have 15 months to lose 65# now. Yikes. I can do this.

Okay, I'm a little hungry, so going to grab a banana or something and jump on the treadmill. Then it's off to run my errands and head to school. Ciao baby.....

Faced my fears
