Ready to admit, and commit

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

Ok, so I have been working out pretty steadily for the past three to four months. I am following a beginner 5k program...for the second time. While my time has gotten better, my actual stamina has not. I have been losing weight very, VERY, slowly and was happy with that. Well, not anymore! As I said, I have been exercising steady and at a pretty high intensity, but I have not been paying much attention to my food intake. I truly believed that by exercise alone, I would lose the weight I need to for good health. That's how I lost it several years ago, so why not again? I neglected to take into account that I was younger and I just plain cooked healthier back then. My kids were athletes and had demanding physical lives and I wanted to do my utmost best to assist them in their endeavors. Well, now that I only cook for myself and my new husband of two years-I cook crappy food, yes, crappy food. We have eaten turkey hotdogs twice this week with buns, macaroni and cheese, sour cream and onion potato chips, and creamed corn. What am I thinking?? It's more like, I haven't been thinking! All the hard work I am doing with exercise I am just sabotaging myself with every meal. I vow to myself to take better care of myself and my husband. I want to live a long, healthy, active, life with him and that means taking care of us both. I will start planning and tracking meals and snacks from this moment on. It's another piece of the plan that will help me gain the success I want through weight loss. Here's to a happy, healthier, life for us all! I am glad to count you all among my supporters! emoticon emoticon emoticon
