No really, this time with feeling!
Monday, April 26, 2021
Ouch. A few years since I "started again" and here I am, heavier than before. But this time I mean it.
My excuses: I retired. My Mom needed lots of care and then died (November 2019). I'm post-menopausal. I'm lazy. I like sweets. Pandemic "stay home, stay safe" and husband working from home meant feeling indulgent and being more sedentary. I broke my toe a couple of weeks ago and it still hurts to walk.
My motivations: My clothes are tight. My skin feels tight. I don't like the way I look. I'm out of shape and lack endurance. I know it's not healthy for me. I don't want to be diabetic. I want to be an example to my husband. My friend has been doing it, so I can do it.
What I like about myself: I have great hair. I've started adding little things to my daily routine and proved that I can do that. I have an inquisitive mind.
Things I need to work on: Thinking about doing instead of doing. Telling myself what I'm doing wrong instead of celebrating what I'm doing right.
