Am I Really Back?
Saturday, August 08, 2009
Hi everyone... hope things are going okay for all of you.
I have a confession to make.. I really have slipped off the exercise bandwagon. I found myself really busy with 2 part-time jobs and it seemed easier and easier to postpone my workout session. My stamina levels stayed high for a good few months.. but lately they are dipping again. I get exhausted very easily these days. And I am avoiding the scale like the plague. I have no idea what I weigh but I suspect the picture ain't good.
But besides that, I am happy and thankful to say that we as a household have stayed pretty much on the healthy eating bandwagon. We found that the healthier we were eating the more eating out seemed unpalatable to us. As the lists of restaurants that we frequent started to dwindle (because most places don't serve healthy food), eating at home became more of a necessity to us. Don't get me wrong, we love to eat out, but when you are limited to either the restaurant that cuts out MSG or the local Chinese that uses fresh ingredients (and will also omit MSG upon request); eating out seems a bit boring now. Also why pay for a salad that doesn't use organic veggies (and doesn't taste as good) when I can prepare an organic one at home for the same price?
Yes we are slowly moving towards organic foods. The steep prices are a deterrent, but I found that organic salads cost the same as non-organic. And organic tomatoes are to die for!! The taste of organic veggies are really in a league of their own. We are not totally organic, but we try to go as organic as we can afford.
So yes must steadily try to get back on track again. Wish me luck?
