Good Morning

Today I had a later morning than usual. I woke up at 10AM. Personally, every morning when I wake up I do not like to just go and make something to eat. I'm usually not hungry. I think for me the best thing to do is eat when I'm actually hungry. I waited around till lunch time and had a half cup of pork and beans with two slices of white bread.Today for lunch I had to

Snowboarding

So this winter I received a season pass to a ski/snowboarding resort. So far I have only gone snowboarding once and today was going to be my second time snowboarding, but was unable to go due to some financial circumstances my mom is dealing with and I need to help her with that.

I would have loved to have gone because it's an effortless workout. Yeah, you're super sore after snowboarding, but the act of snowboarding is fun and it doesn't even feel like a workout when you're doing it. You feel the effects of snowboarding after the fact. Three out of the five hours at the park there you're snowboarding and burning approximatly

Realization

I have come to the realization that I am tired of being unhealthy. I'm tired of hiding from the camera. I'm tired of clothes not fitting right. I'm just tired, and I need a permanent change in my life. I don't want to put my body at risk for harmful conditions such as diabetes since it runs in my family.I feel like I've written this starting post a million times, but now it's different I am dedicated and I want this change. I need this change to be complete.

Today was the first time in about three weeks that I counted my calories. I was off to a bad start this morning with Starbucks and Bunuelos (a Christmas dessert) but made up for it by having a healthy lunch and dinner. After calculating my calorie intake with the Lose It! app, I was about 300 calories over my daily budget and I went for a run to make up for it. I am now 180 calories under my budget and I feel great. Today is the start of a healthier life. I'm looking forward to what's to come

Today, I weighed in and I'm currently 213 pounds. I want to stay away from the scale for two weeks to see what kind of progress I'll make with this new found motivation I have. I have the help of my sister, the Lose It! app, and hopefully the Lost It! community. I'll use these tools/resources to keep me motivated and uplifted throughout my journey.

last but not least, here are some pictures of myself from this December.
