I had a pretty good day today. I started off strong – but I’m up late and I really want to have a snack. As most long-time readers will note, I always spend much more time writing about personal finance – and I usually post here for a while and then slack off. Why? Because managing money is easy! Losing weight is hard! I hate the fact that I can “do everything right” and the scale doe——-
Still here? Good. You see the junk that you just read? That was NCN from, say, the past 10 years. I’ve complained about my weight – and then I’ve talked about how I “do everything right” – and then I whine about not losing weight. No more! Instead of putting a pretty face on an ugly pig (so to speak), I’m going to be brutally honest. Losing weight takes time, dedication, and hard work – and I have done a very poor job of managing my time, I have failed to be dedicated, and I have slacked off on the hard work. So, instead of griping and complaining, I am actually going to listen to my own advice and DO something.
Today, I did a great job of managing my hunger. I ate when I was hungry and I made good choices. I did some work around the house that needed to be done and I managed to get in a little exercise. I’ll weigh in in the morning to get a good “starting weight” – and then I’ll know where I need to go from there. I plan to hit the gym and get my fat rear moving.
For those of you who are tired of seeing me start over – imagine how I feel! Will this time be different? I sure hope so.
As added motivation, in the next year, I am going to run in a race – I’ll decide what kind and how long later – but I’m going to get up off of my fatness and do something. Seriously. No, I mean it. No, really…
Here’s a list of races to be held in Georgia.
