So today I'm going to start taking control of my life! I think my eating habits stem from 1) habit and 2) lack of self control. The second one is kind of duh. The first is that I was raised in TV dinners, take out, and other bad for me food. I was also in a crap situation, so I was depressed and (lucky me) I'm an emotional eater. One good thing about developing my sexy chocolate intolerance is that I can't eat it anymore so I don't have a lot of comfort foods to choose from.
So I'm planning a few things for today and the rest of this week.
- I'm gonna clean my damn room. It's an out of control pigsty since my BF left and if I want to take control, it's a good place to start.
- I'm going to go look at some gyms. I use to go a lot until I got hurt. If I have a gym to go to, I'll probably go to it. I'm looking at Gold's because my old gym was a Gold's and I loved the Women Only area. I'm also looking at an Anytime Fitness. I heard that working where I work can get me discounts, so I'm going to go see.
- Put my damn credit card in the freezer! If I control my spending, I tend to control other parts of my life. I keep a register for my checking account to stop myself from frivolously spending (which works).
You'll note that I didn't say control my food intake. That's because that's the hardest thing for me. So I'm going to take control of other parts which will help me become more disciplined. Getting healthy isn't an overnight thing. It takes time, work, and effort. So here I go, taking a stab at it.
On a slightly less related note, I got on the scale today. At the Dr. I was 207 and the scale said 205 despite my fears. XD I guess all my dancing is helping me at least maintain my weight.
Well, I forgot what I was going to say next. So I'm done for now. I'll probably post about the gym stuff later today or tomorrow.

EDIT: I think I found a gym!!! I went to three total and the cheapest one I found is my favorite. It has SO much cardio and weight lifting equipment! I have a week long pass so I'm going to try to give it a try tomorrow! :D
