Speaking of Healthy and Nutritious
So January is over, the month of resolutions is finished and February the month of failures reigns. That would usually be what most people say about their New Year's Resolutions, however, this year for me, a light bulb went off and it's different. I joined a gym which is what most people do with the simple feeling of needing to change their lives for the better in the new year. What I got in return, was information about myself that I had been denying for a long time. At the behest of my personal trainer, I went to my doctor, who after giving me a physical informed me that, I at the ripe age of 28, would be eligible for weightloss surgery. I think I have always just thought of myself as being just a little overweight, but that information shattered that concept for myself. The truth of the matter is that I am clinically obese. Reality is kind of a cruel bitch, and she slaps hard. So, I haven't blogged in awhile, I haven't crafted in awhile, because I have been working out, and preparing foods that are healthy. I am trying to change allllll of my old habits which is hard. It's a huge challenge, one that I am getting better and better at. The good news is that I have lost 17.5 pounds, my heart rate doesn't spike as fast when I am exercising and my body is starting to show it. I feel good about what I am doing. I feel good about myself. I think my next crafting project may have to be making new clothes though, because my clothes are getting a bit too loose to be decent.
