Tomorrow I am going to embark on a new journey in my life.  Health.  Oh no!  What a dirty word!

I know.  That word just fell right out of my mouth – god forbid.  I’ve been sober for a while and unfortunately I am still smoking.  I am hoping that I will have quit by the end of this week.  People do say “One Day at a Time,” although I do not belong to AA.  Never could wrap my head around it.  Maybe that is an addict attitude.  Don’t know and don’t really care.  I am sober aren’t I?

I now need to lose a good 60 pounds easy.  Drinking makes a person pretty damned lazy.  Trust me.  You don’t exercise.  My curls were a “Bay Breeze.”  Wound up eating like shit too.  Hamburgers, tacos, ice cream – you name it.  If I can microwave it, then processed foods down my throat it goes.  No more.  Spent $140 on healthy food today, broke the bank but I know in the end it’s worth it.

I am not giving up coffee though.  Hell no.  It’s the only thing that wakes me up from the dead in the morning.  Ice cream, that’s going to still be in my circle of food until I can get really used to some of these foods I bought today.  I will be blogging daily on what I’ve eaten, how I feel, how long I worked out (and how much I hate it).  Hopefully I can be an example for others, if that is even remotely possible.

Check in tomorrow and see what happens!
