Well, Here We Go!

Even as I type these first words I'm contemplating deleting this post and my new ticker. But I know I don't truly want to. I have been debating for quite a while on whether I wanted to start blogging about my weight loss journey or not. Finally after reading other weight loss blogs for a while I realized that they were encouraging me by showing every aspect of their journey in an honest open way. And I really like reading them. I'm not turning my blog into a weight loss blog but I am going to start keeping track of the journey here. The good, the bad, and the ugly (which I'm sure there will be a lot of). I'm doing WW online. That is going good so far. I did it last year for a few months and did great but then Christmas at home happened and I ended up just being lazy and giving up. Well now after successfully following it for a week I think I'll start sharing lol. I'm trying to figure out how to write my goals in the sidebar without messing up my page design. Good luck to me. We're looking into used treadmills right now. I've been working out at home doing Netflix videos and Youtube stuff but I want to run. I want to be a runner just like my mom :) but with the 190 degree temps here and 800% humidity everyday, even taking a walk with the boys at 7 a.m. is PAINFUL for all of us. So I workout in the afternoons when the boys take their joint nap. I just want to work harder and I don't feel like I'm getting that from videos. But if we don't find a machine that works to our standards we may just wait until we save for a new one (blah curse you Dave Ramsey). So here it goes. Even if I am the only one to benefit from this new addition from my blog then I did what I came here to do.

You can guarantee I'm working out in my living room dressed like this!

Oh I found a new blog also today over at All the Weigh and I wanted to link up with her for Friend Makin' Monday!
