Happy February everyone! I can’t believe January 2014 is already over, man how the time does fly by.
Today I want to share with you how my journey to a better me is going thus far. The first nine days of January I was only able to walk 2 days since the weather was really cold and we had snow and ice on the ground for a week. The gym on campus wasn’t open yet, since the semester hadn’t started, so it was a slow start for me, but I walked when I had the chance.
The three days before the semester started were actually nice enough for me to walk outside, so on Friday, Saturday and Sunday I walked over at the Bona Dea Trails. Then Monday rolled around, which was the start of the semester, and I joined the gym on campus and have been going strong ever since. I go to the gym 6 days a week and have totally changed my eating habits and the things I eat. Nothing bad in my cupboards. If it’s not here then I can’t eat it, that’s my motto.
So what are the results of my first month on my journey to a better me? Well, January 1st I weighed in at 285 lbs, and as of today, February 1st, I weighed in at 263 lbs. A January weight loss total of 22 lbs! How’s that for a first month total? 🙂
I’ve had several people on campus, that I see on a regular basis, already tell me they can see a difference, and how happy they are for me. I have more energy during the day, sleep much better at night, and feel better just overall, and I know it’s only going to get better.
So there you have it, 22 lbs so far on my journey to a better me. Not to bad, if I do say so myself.
