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.

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....
