BOT: Week One

I thought I would take the time to tell you about myself and where I’m at in life.  Like the About page says, I am a wife of almost fourteen years.  We have four beautiful children.  I am 35 years old.  Through most of my life I’ve never been overly active.  During certain times of my life I have been active but not in a healthy, committed lifestyle.  We’ve attempted a few times but I was never truly committed.  I have given birth to four and a half kids (we lost our other son at 25 weeks)  I have ended up here, very overweight and unhappy with myself.  Besides being pregnant, I have never weighted as much as I do now.  I weight 188 lbs.  Plus being five feet tall doesn’t leave a lot of area to spread that fat around.  My clothes don’t fit right and I avoid looking at myself in mirrors. Recently, I read a book that has changed my life for the better.  Look for a post next week on a book review of this life changing book!

Overall, this has been an awesome week!  I’ve added details to some of my plan (I’ll share those at another time).  I’m still working hard to make healthier eating choices.  I’ve had a few slip-ups but overall I think it has been a good eating week too.

I’ve started tracking what I eat.  Yes, I am counting calories but I’m also tracking m nutrients.  I’ve always been an emotional eater.  So, I’m tracking things to see how i’m doing, how much I should have of something, and if something makes a good alternative.

I started this healthier eating a few weeks ago.  Now that I feel I have a handle on it, I’m adding exercise.  This was my first week with exercising.  And like I said before, this was a good week!

How has your week been?
