Confessions from the Armchair

Confession time:   I have been slacking.  

For how long, you wonder?  Well, since this is the armchair confessional (no sense in lying),... it has been for at least a year.  It has been a year since I have been serious about taking care of my health.  Yeah, I know I am all talk and no game.  In my head I want to believe that it has only been for a couple months, but it would be a complete lie.

In August I studied and took the test to get my Personal Training Certificate.  It is very ironic to me that I would be standing in front of the mirror telling myself... you need a personal trainer.  It isn't because I don't know WHAT to do.  It is because I need ACCOUNTABILITY.  I am really good at procrastination.  I am good at telling myself that I will do it tomorrow.  I am GREAT at smiling and supporting others, but I suck at smiling and supporting myself.  

I have decided that enough is enough.  For the past few months, I have been watching a few of my favorite health and wellness gurus.  You know the ones, Chris and Heidi Powell, Chalene Johnson, Loseitconkatie.  They are all awesome.  I see the great impacts on the world that they are making.  I want to be making an impact like them.  

I Can't Make An Impact While Resting My Butt on the couch!

So, here I am to tell the world, I needed help.  I saw that Chris and Heidi Powell were offering an app that helps you reach your goals.  It is called The Transform App.  It is a workout creator, meal planner, and tracker all in one.  Why do I love it so much?  Because I don't have to think when I go to the gym.  I want to have someone tell me what my next exercise at the gym is.  I am not different than anyone else.  Sure, I have the knowledge and can create my own program. But, what if I don't have to?  What if I take that excuse away from myself?  

Confession time:  I DON'T WANT TO THINK!

My boyfriend, GYM, is my escape.  He is where I go to get a smile one.  He is where I go to prove to myself that I am stronger than I think.  He is the place that go to get my happy on. 

Confession Time:  It ain't easy!

So, as I am sitting here in my house on this day, the chocolate is screaming at me from the depths of the freezer.  It has been a very long time since I have struggled with that issue.  But, I have to start somewhere.  It starts with you big Costco-sized bag of chocolate chips.  You are going to have to leave or find a new hiding place.  I know it is sad because we have been friends for a long time.  But, all good times must come to an end with you.  Sigh....
