Rummaging through the pantry at 4 a.m. in the morning is not what I would call ideal. Yes, I said it, who in their right mind would be looking for something to eat at that time unless you came from work or are working overnight. This guy would.
I am not in any way, shape, or form, qualified to set a daily regiment for myself when it comes to weight loss. I can say that I know my body and what I put into it but let’s be honest, do we really know what we “should” be doing? I’ve noticed-after going through dozens of articles on health and weight loss- that we are all just trying to feel good.
When I was 19 years old I was at 173, which with my height and age meant that I was about 20 pounds overweight. Jump 10 years later and add 40 pounds and you have a new challenge. Surprise, surprise, those cookies finally caught up to you bub. Here I am now, 5:25 a.m. wondering what went wrong with my life. I noticed that I am slowly moving towards my goals and there are some changes I am managing to bring to order. One of these things is to write a lot more, another, to feel comfortable with me be it mentally and physically. Even though I have OCD and take medication for it, it is an ongoing battle. Now, with the physical aspect, I know I need to take control of my life once again.
I used to practice Taekwondo once upon a time and due to two accidents, it left my body scarred. Granted, I’ve tried to find workarounds and they would work for a while. I found I reverted back to a sedimentary lifestyle due to my two recent jobs. For those who don’t know, I mostly sit in front of a computer or behind the wheel of a 20-40 ft long vehicle. But I am beating my chest and saying, enough is enough. Do you know that moment in life when you’re saying that you will really change your life? Ding ding ding, bells have rung and I am in it to lose it-pounds that is.
I’ve downloaded the Lose It! app and even decided to become a premium member, I’m not sponsored by them but if you’re reading this marketing people *slow wink*. I also made sure to sync my LG health with google fit and the app mentioned before. I am ready to get the ball rolling and guess what, it’s not even New Year’s. I could have been like many and dedicated my New Year’s resolution to these goals but honestly, I feel like if you truly want to see a change, start right away. I know it takes about 3 weeks to form a habit and I will truly work on that. I mean, I grew my beard to a length I wanted and required to maintain for work, remember?
It will be a bumpy road. I’m sure many people have gone through with this and even I have in the past but I know I’m serious this time. I’m not doing it to garner attention from any woman, I’m lucky to already have someone in my life. I am doing this for myself, I am doing this because I want to be healthy. This past year has kicked my butt health-wise. I know it could partially be because I’ve packed a couple more pounds and lifestyle hasn’t been the same. So let’s step back into this ring and see who hits who, right? I’m not talking about you, the reader, calm your horses now. I want to become a better writer, blogger, and ultimately someone I can look in the mirror and be like damn, I’m proud. Granted, I do have confidence in myself and love who I am becoming, I still sometimes get anxiety and depression to hit me-thanks OCD.
With all of this being said, I want to thank everyone who took and takes the time to read my work. There are times where grammar isn’t the best, punctuation, but honestly, that’s on me. I will start to really dedicate myself to bringing good content, growing as a writer, and getting to a place I feel good, be healthy. This is Gee_ology once again signing out, peace and love
