How I've gained 12lbs in a year.

That's right. 12 whole pounds. In a Year.
Anyway, I'm sure I know how this happened. I'm sure I have many excuses to justify this gain, but here's the truth: I got lazy. I didn't go on a binge, just pure laziness.
  1. I quit working out 4-5xs a week. Before I got pregnant/miscarried in June 2011 I was running and working out like crazy. After, I was so depressed that I just stopped even though exercise probably would have made me feel better.
  2. I quit tracking points/calories. I was tracking on the MyFitnessPal app partially..when I felt in the mood and was always in my calorie range, but never saw any changes.
  3. I quit planning my meals. I quit packing my lunches for work; I quit making a grocery list.
  4. I put my health as my last priority. I quit taking Synthroid, I stopped taking vitamins, I wasn't getting 8 hours of sleep, I wasn't drinking at least 84oz of water. I stopped caring about me.
So that, my friends, is how I gained 12lbs this year. I'm not even hitting the 50lbs lost mark anymore :-/ But this is going to change. It has to! I'm sorry I haven't been blogging, but I'm going to get back into that as well. Here's some previews of blog entries I have planned:
  • Infertility update (I got a newww diagnosis this month whoohoo)
  • Weekly Weigh Ins: getting real
  • Meal planning (and sticking to it)
  • My New Routine
  • Holiday decor and food preparation
  • Winter apparel
I'm bound and determined to lose these 12lbs..I want to say by the end of this year, but I don't want to set a lime limit on myself for fear of disappointment. But I am going to lose these 12 pounds. Thanks for the support!
Oh, I'll leave you with one of me and Jordan's new pictures. I'll post more soon!
