As some of you know, I'm going through a rough time right now. My husband and I are in the process of separating. I took a break from trying to lose weight, only to find that I couldn't. It had become habit, and I literally couldn't FORCE myself off my path.
Even through Thanksgiving.
I am very proud of myself. I officially consider my weight loss/get fit plan an actual lifestyle now.
Because I'm going to be living on my own, I have to get a job for the first time in 6 years. This is a little frightening! I haven't gone to college, and the only jobs I can find are for waitressing or factory work for minimum wage or less. I am far from the dreams of becoming a police officer, or so I thought.
First things first, I must get into shape. Most police academies have minimum physical fitness requirements which I must pass. It includes a minimum number of push ups, sit ups and a good time on a mile and a half run. Run. As in the very thing I can't do right now. Scratch that, the very thing I am struggling
with. I'm still having trouble with my ankle, but I'm slowly and surely going to work it out. The town I want to move to has a wonderful police department and throughout the year accept applications. My goals are to meet the minimum physical requirements for police academy, saving up money to go during the process, and go. I hope to be a police officer, or at least in official training, this time next year.
Thank you all for your support with my weight loss AND my personal issues.
AND... I'm down to 152lbs even with Thanksgiving dinner.
