Back at it

Welcome to my new home, still officially “Misty Is Losing it” but informally “Misty 2: Electric Boogaloo.”

I’m excited to have an entire site dedicated to my pursuits. Feel free to look around. I have lots of ideas for the site but little time, so have patience with me.

Eventually you’ll see pages for recipes, grocery products, advice for dining out and more. Maybe even a spot devoted for “before and after” pictures, though I’m still a ways off from that.

So, where exactly am I?

Well, after a few months of debauchery and an overall lack of healthy effort, I’m surprised and happy to report that I have kept off a total of 35 pounds.

Not too shabby, but I’ve got a long way to go. So, I’m back at it.

Last night, I hit the gym for the first time in way longer than I care to admit. With me was my longtime Michigan pal Kristy, who started back to her own workout routine last week.

We went to kickboxing class. I almost died.

At one point giving me the advice to breathe through my nose, Kristy then followed up with “Don’t pass out, and don’t throw up!”

Maybe my face changing to unnatural colors was disconcerting?

At the end of class during ab work, I was lying in my own sweat pool when I actually said the words, “Kristy, I’m just gonna have to live here. Go. Save yourself.”

I somehow survived, and I was back on the treadmill for 2 miles this morning.

And so my journey continues. So glad you’re here.
