Here I am, back in the same place I was two years ago. Fat and miserable.
I keep telling myself that I need to lose the weight, but never really giving it the effort that is required. But, in the past week or so, there has been this nagging voice in the back of my mind that says this is the time. this time will be different. I have a fat husband, a fat son, and a daughter who is working at McDonalds and if she is not careful, so wiil also end up fat. Since I was last on, we bought a house with a big back yard and a pool. I swam a lot last year, but more floating then excercising. So anyway I woke up this morning and decided this is my time!
So, I went to work this morning, came home, fixed dinner, and then my son and I went for a 30 minute walk. It was not as fast paced as I would have preferred, but he is only 7 and we are both very out of shape. We made it 1.07 miles. Not the speediest, but it was not fla terrain (nothing where I live is flat) and this is our first time out
I really like the map maker on this site. It will be great helping me to find routes to walk that aren't too much for he and I to handle. And maybe someday, I can get my hubby out there with me.
I am hoping that if I blog something every few days, I can be my own motivation since I live in a town where I don't know anybody!
