One Day at A Time for Angie

So - this is my first blog and I have decided that it is time to starting talking.  I always played sports growing up and ate whatever I wanted because my body could take it and burn it no problem.  Well, those days are LONG gone.  My main issue is I have never liked vegetables and I have a hard time eating them.  Big problem when I am trying to eat healthier and trying to get fit again.  I am also very bad about drinking my water - any at all actually.  I will definitely be taking baby steps to lose weight. 
My philosophy is - take small steps and lose gradually because I am more likely to keep it off than if I try to lose it with diet pills or too quickly.  I did lose 10 lbs from last year but I had at one point lost 20 so I definitely not doing well.  Hoping this year will be better.  I did jog a 5K in November and than had to take about a month off because I got sick, kids got sick and I ended up with Bronchitis and so that stopped me from doing much of anything. 
I decided to start on this site in hopes of getting motivated again and maybe be more accountable for myself.  I am a very orginazational person so I need to plan everything out but am having a hard time with that because I seem to get depressed on some days and also a  little apprehensive about even leaving my house some days.  Working on that too.  I don't work so it is easy for me to get caught up on facebook or things that keep me sitting around all day. 
I do have a goal of joggng another 5K by April.  Looking to do a 10K by the end of the summer.  Also looking to lose about 20 more lbs by the end of the summer.  Still need to lose about 50 pounds altogether but will be happy if I can hit 20 pounds by end of summer.
