So today is my birthday!! 28 years young. Did you know the google machine KNOWS it's your birthday. Oh internets...
As a birthday present to myself I have decided that January 20, 2014-January 20, 2015 is going to be the healthiest year I have ever had. And hopefully the skinniest too!
Personal information disclaimer: I wasn't sure if I wanted to share any personal info on here, because quite honestly it is a weight loss blog and I don't want to bore you with non-weight loss related information. However, what I am about to divulge ties in. Trust me. We come full cirlce here at Kait Weight.
Last week was a tough week. A few weeks back I decided that I wanted to go back to school to get my MBA. I was super stoked about it. I was ready to commit myself fully to something that I knew was going to be tough to do on top of working full time. But I was ready. I got my undergrad transcripts. Started studying for the GMAT. Scheduled an informational meeting with LSU. I was getting my ducks in a row and feeling pretty swell about it. Well, last week I found out, due to some unforseen circumstances, that this was no longer going to be something I could do. I wanted it bad and when I found out I couldn't have it, it hurt. It sucked and I cried and I was a total girl about it. Sometimes you don't realize how bad you want something until you can't have it anymore.
That being said (full circle part), I decided after a few days of moping and moaning about it that I would put my big girl panties on (hopefully soon enough they will be skinny, sexy girl panties) and start working on something else. I was ready to fully commit myself to something. I was ready to work hard and put in the hours it was going to take even on days I didn't feel like it. So why not fully commit myself to this?!? DUH! To being the healthiest, hottest person I can be. That may be my goal right now, but I know that if I apply myself I can do anything I want (barring those pesky unforseen circumstances). I always joked that it would be fun to teach a class at a gym. This was never a goal that I thought was obtainable because hey, no one (myself included) wants to take a class given by a chubster (I say that lovingly). But hey, if I could get my MBA, why the hell can't I eventually teach a class at a gym??? I can so do this!
So my goal for the year: Get fit enough to feel comfortable going to get certified to teach spin, or zumba, or who the hell knows what else?! I'll figure that out when I get there. All I know, is that I am ready to apply myself and commit to something. Looks like this is it!
Reaching my goal started this morning at 4:45am :)
