I did some reevaluating of my goals and decided to go ahead and do some before shots that would actually be shared. I have been on spark people actively, somewhat, for a few months now and I haven’t seen any changes because I haven’t changed much of what I’ve been doing. This is going to stop. I need this change to happen and I don’t want to keep going through the motions without getting anywhere. Yes, I’ve made steps. I’ve joined a few challenges that have gotten me up and doing exercises but it’s not enough.
I’m going to do a 5k (3.1 miles) once a week. Starting out this first week with just a mile so that I’m not pushing myself too hard, too soon. It would be great to be able to join a gym but we really don’t have the finances. So I am going to do what I can with what I have.
I’ve also upped my reading challenge goal this year to 125. And there is also a reading challenge I’ve seen passed around facebook that I am adding to, but using it as a jumping off point.
Spiritually I have a few ideas I am working around in my mind on what I want to do regularly. It is important to me that I don’t do this half assed, I’m done with just getting by with as little as possible. In a very lets get this done kinda mindframe, I like it and hope it lasts.
Below are the before pictures and I will be reposting them with updated ones so I can see the changes. Because the scale is a bitch who needs to be punched in the face…just saying.
