Little FAT Me

I work full time and I barely have time to breathe. In 2005 hurricane Katrina rearranged my life, since then I have gained roughly 80-90 pounds. I believe that it started in depression and became an addiction. I have started and failed many diets and then decided that MAYBE if I combine diet and exercise with blogging and shopping I might be able to find success. This is the story of 2010 and my struggle to rise above addiction, pain, depression and fat.

February Challenge: Week 3, # 3

Well, let me tell you what the last eight months taught me. Ready? Having a flare up is kind of like being preggers when it comes to exercise. It seems okay to continue to doing what I am used to, but it is NOT the time to push or try to add to my current routine. So today I went to the gym knowing that a run was questionable, a jog was more what I had my mind set on. Bam! All the treadmills are taken, WHY? So I schlepped over to the elliptical, which now that I have done it I plan on hitting it a bit more often, I mounted and started to go of it. Within five minutes I was sweating and my legs were SCREAMING. Of course that is when some dude jumped off the treadmill and I scrambled to get over there, but by that time the hope of jogging had been burned away by the elliptical monster.
I must say, I have changed – instead of pissing off and going home I set it at 3.8 mph (that makes my short little stumps practically run) and I hit that b*tch with a passion!
