Part 1 – The Past: How to get a Healthy Lifestyle with Omada

What was your New Year’s resolution? Exercise, maybe eat more health?

In order to go forward you must go backwards and understand. Recently, I joined a new program called Omada offered by my medical insurance. I thought I would give it a shot to keep going on my weight loss efforts. Currently, at work I am in a Fitness Challenge with my co-workers to lose weight which has been way more fun than I thought it was going to be.

Here is where I was a year ago blogging away:

“The winter holidays are long gone and spring is here. Beautiful trees are just budding and colorful flowers are blooming all around us. What was your New Year’s resolution? Exercise, maybe eat more health? I know for me my New Year’s goals where to do exactly that. Exercise more and eat healthier. Don’t hold it against me, I am not an expert on fitness or exercise but I am trying to figure out what works for me fitness wise. ” – OMGLesbianArmyWifeBlog

Now come with me down memory lane to see how my fitness journey began really quick. I am sure anyone  who has tried a diet or  new exercise regime has probably at least once fallen victim to fitness goals being left unfinished.

A year ago here were my goals and how I would follow through…

How I’m improving my fitness Regime:

Plan: I looked at my sedentary lifestyle and I decided to change it.

Commitment: Making the decision to faithful go to the gym is a big committed and I finally made it.

Goal: I want to feel better about myself, the way I look, and my health.

Action: I get up a little early and go work out. I figure if I can go to work I can go the gym too.

Execution:  I join Curves. I really enjoy going to Curves and doing the circuits it works for me.

A year later…. Here is what really happened:

Plan: I looked at my sedentary lifestyle and I decided to change it.

Accomplished!  I joined Curves and watched what I ate.

Commitment: Making the decision to faithful go to the gym is a big committed and I finally made it.

I made the committed and it only last for 4 months from April to August 2016.

Goal: I want to feel better about myself, the way I look, and my health.

I did feel better once I embarked on my Curves journey. I could see the difference in my appearance.

Action: I get up a little early and go work out. I figure if I can go to work I can go the gym too.

I think overtime I am just not a morning exercise person and went in the afternoon after work.

Execution:  I join Curves. I really enjoy going to Curves and doing the circuits it works for me.

Conclusion is I did join Curves and I did see some results.

I like that the Curves gym is for only women plus it was like 5 minutes from my house. I felt comfortable and safe.  I did feel motivated by my coaches and then I didn’t. I didn’t like feeling as if I wasn’t doing good enough if I missed at day I committed to. I felt guilty and shameful. So, unfortunately I stop going and never looked back. I did enjoy my slight weight loss but then the holidays came and went and I ended up gaining 10 pounds. I am almost back to the weight I started at now.
