I realize that my blog has fizzled out because my crafting has changed so much. I sold all my yarn, and I have been giving out my craft supplies like candy at Christmas. It’s not because I don’t like to craft, it’s just because I have been focusing on health and fitness. It’s hard to sit down for 10 hours and knit a baby sweater when you’re trying to stay moving and on your feet more.
I have spent most of my life overweight. My weight has been something that has prevented me from doing things. I often failed at dieting because I wasn’t in the right head space. Even this year I have been struggling so hard. My weight has been fluctuating in the same 10 pound bracket all year. It’s difficult.
So to help stay motivated in my lifestyle changes, and in my blog I am merging the two. There will be a lot more health and fitness related posts in the future. I will still post about the crafty things, and the family things. I just need something to kick me in the ass and get me over this hump.
Let’s talk goals. My short term goal is 220. If I can get down to 220, that’s 14 pounds to lose right now as I type this. My long term goal is 140 because I am 5′ 5″ and I think that 140 is right in the middle or on the higher end of the healthy weight for someone my height. That is 94 pounds. I want to lost this before I turn 30, and that’s only a year and half to do this. I got this, I can do this.
I need all the support and motivation I can get. So send me all of the good vibes! Check out my youtube channel. The goal is to be uploading Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays. (I have yet to meet this goal, but in linking the blog and the vlog I think I can manage.) However, I intend to post about my progress weekly. I am thinking of doing it as a weigh-in Wednesday thing, that seems to be what most people do. Look forward to my post next Wednesday, I’ll include body shots and a link to my weekly weigh in video.
Thanks for all the love and support! Let me know in the comments what things motivate you to include fitness and nutrition in your life.
