TL;DR Following my own advice
Saturday, April 20, 2019
As the young 'uns say, TL;DR: Struggles. Lots of Struggles. Time for corrective action. I've gained weight. Again. My hip is sore.
But... I have not stopped exercising. I'm still eating reasonably well most of the time. Just too much of it. And let's just say, the less we say about the Italian Cookie Incident the better.
Last night I decided to follow my own good advice. I spent the morning planning meals, building the grocery list, plugging the meals and the exercise into my calendar.
In 10 minutes, I'm hopping on the Pricey Peloton and doing a 75-minute class.
After a shower and lunch, I'm heading out to buy a pair of jeans that fit and flatter. The current jeans are uncomfortable around the waist. This is the first time since 2015 that I had to buy clothes a size larger. These jeans will be the ONLY clothes that I buy that are a a size larger.
Then I am going to the grocery store to buy the food on the grocery list.
If I have time and energy, I will start prepping for the week.
I am not beating myself up and I am not talking to my chattering monkey brain about failure.
I am going to continue to make myself look pretty every day: nails, hair, make up, clothes that suit me and look good. I'm going to smile and be kind to the people around me, including myself.
