If not for the skinny jeans…

Yes, I am alive (and well)

Posted on: November 4, 2013

Hello out there!!  First, sorry for not being on top of my little blog.  I started school full time and well, it’s just a wee bit harder (and more time consuming) than I thought I’d be.  For those interested, I am working towards a Bachelors of Science in Mathematics, with a concentration in general mathematics and education.  Long title, simple meaning… I’m striving to be a high school math teacher 🙂  Right now my classes are economics, astronomy, calculus (2), and the foundations of mathematics.

My course load and family life have unfortunately made my health goals start to fall by the wayside.  Luckily I haven’t gained any weight, but my motivation is basically non-existent.  That is, until last week.

I started looking through some of my older pictures and saw how fit I had gotten.  I could definition in places there had NEVER been definition.  I had curves in all the “right” places.  I looked, and better yet, FELT, amazing!  I also looked at some of my “before” pictures.  I realized I’m only a donut, candy piece, or pizza slice away from “treats” becoming habits.  I let myself indulge with my husband, and now I’m feeling the effects, both mentally/emotionally and physically.

I’ve started a satellite program with Nick.  He’s my go-to!  I will always trust his judgement.  I’ve got my goals and what better time frame to strive to reach them then while overcoming the holiday “obstacles”??  I have actually joined a DietBet that is 6 months long.  Essentially, you are betting on yourself that you will lose the x% of bodyweight by the given date.  For this challenge, or bet, its 10% in 6months, or roughly 15 lbs for me by May.  It’ll hold me accountable, and at this point, I need all the help I can get!!

How do you get over your slumps??
