Day One Hundred Forty-One (Aka: The Absolute Truth)
Driver Picks the Music
So I had originally had the idea to make June my 'truth' month, where I'd have opened up channels to everyone who reads this to ask me questions, and I'd be absolutely truthful with them.  However, due to recent developments, that's going to be put on hold for the time being.

The way I see it, how can I be truthful to others if I'm not being truthful to myself?

So here's the truth, to hopefully make me more accountable.

I'm pretty sure I'm at the start of having a potential weight problem.  I haven't been nearly as active as I used to be (no cadets + being in university + no rec pass this past year), and I've been eating more crap food than usual (not much pay coming in + car insurance/loan payments + housesitting on and off since September = I've been buying cheap food to feed myself) these past few months, and it's catching up to me.  I'm currently at the heaviest I've ever been (144 lbs, if anyone's wondering.  Yes, it's not TERRIBLE, but it's at the point where if I don't catch it now, it'll just get worse).

It's not a whole lot - only 15 pounds, and a lot of people have told me it's not noticeable.  However, it is to me.  Plus, I just FEEL gross. That, and I'm too poor to enable myself by simply buying larger clothing.  So during the month of June (and then onwards), I'm going to make more of a push to eat better, be more active, burn off some of this extra weight I've put on, attempt to build some muscles, and hopefully not die in the process.

Cons: I'll be in a lot of pain.

Pros: I'll look better.
I'll feel better about myself/won't feel as guilty.
I'll be healthier.
I (hopefully) won't do horribly/will pass when they instate the CF EXPRES test for CIC officers.

...yeah, I think the pros outweigh the cons here.  Starting ASAP, it's fitness time.

Recommendation from someone who went from a size 24 to an 18 without starving herself or running ragged--walking. 30 minutes or more, however many days a week you can fit in.
