Okay, here’s the deal. Since I’ve made a goal for myself of blogging something everyday, I’ve come to the conclusion that it might make my goal easier to accomplish if I come up with daily themes. Thus far I have questions on Fridays, happy lists on Sunday, but the rest of the week is hit or miss.
I finally decided that, because I’m back exercising, I need to keep myself accountable about my exercising. However, I really, really hate exercise. I always finish feeling defeated and miserable. Apparently, other people do not share this feeling. Either that, or people who say, “I love how great I feel after I work out.” are lying.
You know who else needs to lose weight and hates exercise? Garfield! Okay, so he’s a cat in a comic strip. That doesn’t change the fact that when it comes to this issue we’ve got something in common. That’s why I’m choosing to make Mondays my accountability to the world day. Not a terribly exciting post, but it will hopefully inspire me to get my butt out of the chair and work out every day.
So, here I go.
A requirement I’m making of myself for this whole accountability thing, is posting pictures of my progress. I think this is important, because I’m really camera shy. I’m usually the one volunteering to take photos, because I don’t want to see myself. This is a sad state of affairs. I have few recorded images of myself with my friends. I need to get over this, and what better way than sharing my journey/struggle with the public. The photos below mark the beginning of my first week back of exercising, and how far I have to go.
133 lbs. to go!
So, there you have it. It ain’t pretty, but it will be.
