Wake up and do this! Plus 2 Giveaways!

So, I am feeling like what is happening here 
is kind of a BIG DEAL!

I have planning a big giveaway on my facebook page, Mindy's Fitness Journey for when I get 5,000 likes. In the process of all of this I noticed that I am close to writing my 100th blog! That is big! I just started blogging in July, and I am really excited about that. I would love for you all to share my facebook page, Mindy's Fitness Journey with your friends. I am 300 away from the big giveaway. I am giving away a Polar Heart Rate Monitor. I also have 2 other exciting items, and few that are in the works. Thank you for always supporting me. You all make my life better! I mean that!

I appreciate that you all care enough to read my blog, page, twitter, instagram, tumblr and pinterest. I remember when I just had a personal facebook page. Life has definitely gotten busier, but I have gotten so much out of blogging. I have made friends, I have met so many new people and friends in the real world (not just the blogging world) I have had people lift me up when I am down, and you have allowed me to introduce Bryce to you. Thank you for that!

It also made me think that I need to get back to reporting in to you all about my workouts and my eating. I am doing a half marathon next month, and I need to run A LOT more than I already am. So I have decided that I am ready to share the good, the bad and the ugly with you. I am excited about the new ideas I have to improve my fitness and my nutrition. I will share as I go. I do share when things are  not going well, as you know, but I think I want to share more. I think I want you to see that I am someone on a journey. I am not perfect, and sometimes I have "food accidents!"

My goal is to lose 30 lbs. by Fit Bloggin' at the end of June.  I want to have an awesome before and "during" picture. It won't be an after yet because I need to lose more than 30. I am starting fresh today with my weight. As of today, I have lost no weight. I will weigh in every Sunday. At this point, I am too self-conscious to post my weight. Hopefully once I lose some, I will be more comfortable. I just know that there are haters who want me to fail and I don't want them to have ammunition. I hope you understand. (I am not referring to anyone in the fitness world, rather my own personal world)

What I have realized in the last few days is I have some emotional ties to food that I still have not conquered yet. I run to food when someone upsets me. Over the last month, I have caught myself making bad choices, and I know it's a result of people walking out of my life. I am hurt, but I also know that I need to move on and let go of the hurt, or it will consume me, or I will consume it... LOL... that was a joke!!! Anyways, I didn't realize it, but I fell back into an old pattern of turning to food for comfort. I have to break that habit! It is time to WAKE UP and DO THIS!
Here we go!
