I am a 32 year old woman that has gone from a happy, confident and sexy woman to an overweight cranky stranger that I don't recognize anymore. The picture above is what I looked like a few years ago (in fact it was taken Dec of 2009) and here is what I look like now.
I know that I am not ugly but I feel ugly and I feel unhealthy both mentally and physically. For me though it all comes down to a lack of motivation. When given the choice between excercise and anything else, I will always choose the anything else. I WANT THAT TO CHANGE! My husband is active duty military and I work for the Marine Corps so I have access to the best physical fitness services and equipment available yet I don't use them.
There is another aspect to this as well. My husband and I are reproductively challenged and have to go through IVF treatments to get pregnant. We are shooting for the April timeframe to start our first round and at the moment I am too overweight to start the program. I WANT THAT TO CHANGE!
I also know that my eating habits, stress level and lack of excercise is making me into a Mrs. Cranky pants all the time. My husband is amazing but I am afraid that this will take a toll on my marriage after too long. I WANT THAT TO CHANGE!
I WANT TO BE THE ME I FEEL LIKE INSIDE!
Height: 5' 7"
Hours Excercised this week: 0
Hours Excercised per week: 4-5 (min)
*I want to get in the habit of doing at least one hour of excercise at least four days per week.
I am going to use Fitocracy as a journal for my progress and I will post progression photos, mostly of my face because that is where I really see the changes in me. Here's to letting the happy, healthy and fit Jenn back out and into the world!
