Today I started my journey to a healthier version of me. I video chatted with my coach, Katy Tombaugh from the Wellness Collective as we outlined a basic plan for me to start with. Can’t undue 12 years of neglect in a weekend, this is going to take a while.
The several weeks preceding this I actively ate anything I wanted, ‘get it out of my system’ I was telling myself. I did a stellar job, weight jumped up nine pounds… oops. When it comes off it will be more dramatic… right?!
We decided on a low carb diet and moderate exercise at first. I have done well on the eating and I did get some steps in but not enough. I need to carve time out to exercise or take a walk, this will be the hard part… time.
I announced that today was the day I would start, no backing out. I am leaving it all out there for everyone to read about my triumphs (fingers crossed) and my setbacks (I am a realist) and this openness about my life is very uncomfortable for me.
Maybe that is what I need, being uncomfortable to truly make some substantive changes.
More to come…
