Starting to get it now..checking in =)

So, it’s already been almost a year. That’s crazy to believe. I kept piddle farting around (my southern girl phrase of the day) about a healthier lifestyle and starting to exercise. Well, I just want to check in and say that I’m so happy to report that when I came back and looked at my goals, I was able to scratch off a few. I’ve lost 16lbs so far. I’ve really started to make permanent changes. Exercise is not a choice any more but just a part of my every day. I have been successfully going to the gym after work and the miracle that I know I’m committed to this now is that I’ve been getting up and exercising in the morning as well before work.

I purchased my new “toy”, the fitbit Force. Y’all, I love this thing! Its a bracelet that has a clock, counts my steps, miles, calories burned, flights of stairs, tracks my sleep and has a vibrating alarm. It has a screen so I can check it often to see where I’m at. I’ve set my goal for 10,000 steps a day, and so far I’ve only missed one day of that goal.

Even though I haven’t lost as much “weight” as I had hoped since making these changes, I have dropped a pants size. It was so nice to be able to go “shopping” in my closet and actually fit in a couple pairs I pulled down.

I just want to share that it has finally clicked that I’m not going to see any results and nothing’s going to change unless I actually put the work into it.

So, in signing off for now…I’m going to go take a walk and enjoy another beautiful day! 🙂

Have a great day everyone and make healthy choices! ~Charity
