Hey Everyone!

It has been a long long long time since I have been inspired to write something on here. I opened up blogger dashboard a couple of times to post something but I couldn't bring myself to post an update. All of a sudden blogger became a source of anxiety for me. At first, I told myself that I wasn't posting because I had nothing to post about, and then I said to myself that I am not posting because I am not doing anything exercise/diet related. I had completely abandoned my quest to get fit. I just couldn't be bothered. The truth is I think I was a bit down about how I wasn't progressing anymore. I can't even make excuses because I know it is my fault. 

But now all that is in the past and I could have, should have, would haves, are in past and I am ready to get down to business. Today is a new start for me. I do intend to finally start blogging again and losing weight. I have set a goal for myself to lose 30lbs by December 31st. At the beginning of this month I weighed 192lbs, This morning when I weighed myself I was 195lbs. I have regained 15lbs (ouch) from my low this year. <----- It hurts to type that. However, as I said in the beginning that is all in the past now and I am moving forward with operation Hot Wife.

Goals for this week:

1. Exercise every day for at least 20mins a day: Rationale It as been a while since I have done any form of exercise and I need to get back into it.
2. Drink only water: I have been drinking way too many sweet drinks...
3. Eat breakfast every morning. I find that I snack less when I have a good breakfast.

Another thing that has inspired me to start working out again is because my cousin is getting married new month and while I am not a bridesmaid, I will be seeing my father's side of the family again and they are more critical than my mother's side of the family. I think that I will be better prepared to mentally handle their criticism if I know in myself that I am on the journey to becoming healthy and thinner again.

Thanks for reading. I know I have said this before but I do intend to post more often again....
