Get Fit for Life

#19 Get in the BEST Shape of my Life

I actually need to pat myself on the back. I lost 12 pounds over the past 6 months. You might not think that's alot, but I have gained nearly 15 pounds a year over the last 3 years. If I follow gluten free more often like my husband, I might have lost more. All I can say is Bagels and Rolls! Nonetheless, I'm proud that I've actually welcomed 31 years old weighing less than I did at 30.

My eating habits have changed tremendously over the past year. I rarely eat potatoes because hubby can't eat them, and I have cut down on white rice and added brown rice. I continue to eat peppers despite hubby's allergy, and I managed to only buy single servings of ice cream at the shops rather than half gallons for the home. I'm proud of myself for drinking lots of water and tea through out the day. (I just need to work on doing it daily.) I am also proud of not snacking all day. That's hard to do when you work a stressful desk job.

#19- Completed
Over the past few weeks, I have taken up Zumba, but more seriously this time. I have had the video game for a few years, but didn't use it consistently. Not sure why I didn't, but I have seen the changes this form of dancing has done to others. My cousin has lost over #60 lbs and a old high school buddy has lost nearly the same. I need to lose about #50 pounds! Losing #30 will be more than I could ask for. Hubby and I also moved to a more walk-able area. I've strolled to the grocery store twice in one week already.

My road has just begun. I'm not in the best shape that I can be in physically, but mentally I'm ready to get there. You might say that I didn't complete this task, but I do. You have to start somewhere and today I'm in the best shape I've been in for the last three years!
