So I had a couple cheats this week. I got some GREAT news on Monday. I officially don’t have Hodgkin’s Lymphoma anymore. I still have to deal my thyroid issues, but that will be behind me soon and I’ll be on my way!

I’m down 1.6 pounds for the week, which even though it doesn’t feel like a lot, at least it’s a loss! And, I’m down another 1.5 inches. So, not a great week weigh in wise. I don’t really mind though, the milk shake I had was totally worth it!

At the End of the Week…

I officially made it one week back on Paleo. I had a couple of small cheats this week, but nothing critical. No gluten. I had a vodka tonic at the company party, and one iced coffee with cream instead of almond milk. Close enough for me.

It was a pretty good week overall. I ate some good food, and felt great and am glad that I have the knowledge to be able to start this on a whim rather than waiting until my self imposed start date. The next step, which will be much more difficult for me, is to add back in exercise. I’m tossing around going to a Crossfit class at the gym or just throwing in one of my DVD’s here at home. It will probably be a DVD at home, at least until I get back from my trip to Washington. No since in paying for a membership, then having surgery on my neck and not use it for a few weeks.

Alright, to the results.

And So it Begins

So I’m giving it a go again. I know it’s happened before on this blog, but it’s time. I’m back to paleo this morning. I was going to wait until January 24th to start the process, but honestly, I’m feeling ready now. I’m feeling pudgy and fat and not happy. I know that spending some time on the paleo diet will get not only my weight back where it needs to be, but fix my insides.

If I want to be honest, I probably should have been paleo the entire time I was fighting cancer, but really, I think I deserved the cookies and bread and candy.

The stats aren’t pretty. I’m starting this at 202.4 pounds. Ouch. 52 pounds to my goal. Or a size 8. I’d be happy with an 8. I know that life isn’t about what you weigh, but I need to stick around for a long time.

Exercising, what?

I’m out of it. Seriously, you guys. I’m not even sort of into it.

A few months ago I was on the weight loss band wagon. I was hitting the gym, I was running from my house to the high school and then hitting the track and running there. But, somewhere along the way, I stopped.

I’ve tried to get back into it, and I can’t find the motivation.

I hit one CrossFit class, and thought I was going to die, and haven’t been back. I want to go back, I want to exercise, I just flat can’t figure out when to do it.

Okay, you might say, “Angela, how about you get up and exercise now, instead of sitting on your rump blogging.” Except that doesn’t work. It’s 7 in the morning, my wonderful husband is still in bed, it’s still dark outside (WTF?) and, I haven’t finished my coffee. It also doesn’t help that starting the first of this month my work doesn’t pay my gym membership anymore, so now I have to either pay for it myself, or use things from home.

I”m sort of putting off signing up on my own because I REALLY want to try that crossfit again, and if I have to pay that, I can’t afford to pay both.

The kicker is, I’m not that far away from my first goal. I know that I have curves and bones, and I’m not ever going to be a 5’8″ 120 pound woman. America’s Next Top Model I think not, but put me in an 8/10 and I’ll be rocking it! So, I’m putting it out there. I have a goal. I need to lose 9 pounds to my goal. I want to be healthy.

Blogworld, I will try to check in weekly to report on my activities and let you know how I’m doing! 9 pounds, in 7 weeks! I can do it!!!!
