It’s been 4 weeks since my last blog.  I was pretty frustrated when I last blogged – I had been told what my weight was.  It took me several days to pull myself together and decide that I wasn’t going to give up.  I whined in my last blog that Bailey would eventually get tired of listening to me bitch, I knew she really wouldn’t.  Over the last several weeks she has pushed me harder while at the gym.  She even got me to start running again.  So I have been committed the last three weeks and I have done well.  Every minute of every day hasn’t been easy but I have made it work.

So I have to tell you about something really cool.  For Mother’s Day my husband got me a Fitbit.  I love it!!  He was able to get it in a plum/purple color which is awesome – Epilepsy Awareness!  It has been amazing for me.  This is going to sound crazy but it has given me a clear picture of the whole calorie thing.  I never understood that we burn calories while functioning daily.  Even while we sleep.  I know that sounds ridiculous but I never really had a rational idea of dieting either.  I have lived my life with either an extreme calorie limit or a reckless calorie over consumption.  Now I have it right there, I can see what I am burning and I understand.

I set little goals for myself with the Fitbit and I like seeing the results.  I was so excited when I pushed through my run at the gym.  Bailey and I are branching out with our workouts at the gym and trying new things.  I don’t feel like I am putting crazy pressure on myself to reach certain/crazy goals.  It’s kinda fun.  I was so consumed with weight loss goal last time that I can’t really even remember the process.  I have good memories of course but at some point along the way I let joy be replaced by obsession.  Good luck everyone!  #riseabove
