So tomorrow is a pretty significant and emotional day for me. It would have been the one year anniversary of my ex and I. We only broke up last month, so the wounds are still fresh. I won’t go into all of that because this is my weight loss blog- not my dating one. I only mention this because prior to my transformation starting, the first thing I would have done was run for the nearest cupcake. As one of my sorority sisters and I agreed last night, cupcakes make everyone happy. I mentioned in an earlier post that I am an emotional eater. I know this about myself. So instead of coming home tomorrow after work and being tempted to stuff my face, I’m headed to the gym.
As all of you that are friends with me on FB saw, my trainer put me on the punching bag this week. I freaking love it! My hands were the only thing that hurt me when I was done with that, but I think it was because the gloves might have been a little too big. (I have little kid hands!) So, my plan is to get off work, head to the gym and give the punching bag a good beating. In fact, I plan to beat the hell out of the punching bag and get in a good work out.
What I am not going to do is wallow in my sad feelings. I will not give in to the want in me that would normally have me eating a cupcake (or two…). My transformation is more than losing weight. This is about changing my habits. So tomorrow when I wake up, I will go to work. I will go to the gym. And the only tears that will be shed, will be that of the fat that I am working off my body!
