365 Days of Healthy

I realized just before Christmas, like really realized, that I was not at all happy with my body. That I had in fact reached an all time high on the scale and that my clothes were much less flattering than they could be. This is the sort of realization that made me want to eat a Culver's turtle sundae using French fries as my spoon. But that sort of coping mechanism is, in part, what got me here.

Sure, 2012 was a bastard. It kicked me more than once when I was already down. The past few months have been a shit-storm of stress. And sleepless nights. And finding comfort in food. By at the end of it all, I'm still stressed and now I'm fat.

Something had to change.

That's when I decided that I needed to start making better decisions. Eat smarter, sleep better, move my body more. And so, day by day, I am trying to do that.

So my New Year's
ResolutionCommitment is to be healthier.

Eat Healthier. Make better food choices, watch my portions, count my calories, be accountable.

Move More. Run, swim, bike, lift, bend and walk my way to a healthier me.

Stress Less. Heh. Right. But I can try to breath more and focus on what's important.

If I can commit to making better decisions every day I know that I will achieve my goals not only of a smaller number on the scale, but of a healthier, happier me.

So here's to 2013 and my 365 Days of Healthy.
