My husband likes to say this a lot… he is one of my biggest inspirations. He works out a lot, sets fitness-related goals for himself, doesn’t let injuries set him back, eats fairly well (to be fair, it’s probably because I feed him healthy things!), is a great father and follows his dreams. Whenever people ask him why he is going to college for the first time in his 30s, he always says that he is going to be 40 anyway, and he might as well be 40 with a degree. I love that sentiment, and I think it’s so true. It would be so easy to be self-defeating. Either way, I’m going to be 25 this year. Either way, I am going to have to experience the summer weather. Either way, it will be time to go to the beach. I might as well make the most of the time I have and treat my body right.

Speaking of my husband, I think it is so important to have a support network. He is my number one fan, but I also have a loving family who want only the best for me, even if they express it in ways that I might not always want to hear. It comes from a place of love and concern, and I know I can always count on my parents to keep it real and tell me when they think I’ve gained a bunch of weight.

My husband turns 34 today! Happy birthday to the original reader and continuous supporter of this little corner of the blogosphere 🙂

Today is my first weigh-in since starting My Fitness Pal. Full disclosure: I am trying to eat 1200 calories a day and work out 3x a week, but I have been slacking on the working out (aka not working out at all). I have been cooking more this week, which is nice! My husband noticed the change in my cooking habits and is liking the fresh meals too!

I am down 2.1 lbs this week! Yay! I’m excited! I will be super happy to get out of the 160s (AGAIN). My goal for next week is to get close to 160, if not out of 160s entirely.

So far, so good 🙂 I’m loving this new motivation. I keep telling myself, it’s not how often I fall, it is how often I get right back up and do the damn thing!
