I have let myself go over the last 10 years and I am starting to have some health issues. I am dertermined to make some much needed changes in my life.
Hi I am a 45 year old mother of a 4 year old and currently a librarian at an elementary school. I lost weight 2 years ago and became really fit but then broke a rib and gave up...literally gave up. I did a boot camp last year and completed it but was horrified at myselff. Now, a year later, heavier and out of shape more than ever, I just went to the doctor in Feb 21012 and he prescribed 7 meds, lifelong for COPD, asma, etc. So, I chucked the meds in March and started a 30 day juice fast to kick my health back in! Goal accomplished!
OH yes, and even as a Librarian and lifelong teacher, I am horrib-le typist, sorry.
I get really motivated and then as soon as I start seeing results or start feeling better I tend to sabotage myself.(Point in fact, right after my blood tests and clear lungs, I stopped my juice fast..and ate EVERYTHING again!) I do well with mini goals and support AND accountability. When I was working with a trainer two years ago and at my best physically in ten years, I used to receive daily and often hourly texts from him and it was enough to keep me going. Although guilt is my biggest motivator and I hope to get to a place where JOY replaces the guilt,
Still working on the guilt and the feeling of entitlement!
