Me and my goals

I grew up in Houston, TX. After a busy life, I have settled down with the husband and kiddos in a small "po-dunk red-neck" town an hour north of the city. I like it. It is quiet. I still drive my hour to work every morning and hour home every evening. That part I don't like.
I don't have a lot of time for "structured" exercise, so I choose the best options I can. Walking, outside work, and serious playing with the "adolescent" dogs. They are some fast runners to catch.

I grew up in Houston, TX. After a busy life, I have settled down with the husband and kiddos in a small "po-dunk red-neck" town an hour north of the city. I like it. It is quiet. I still drive my hour to work every morning and hour home every evening. That part I don't like.
I don't have a lot of time for "structured" exercise, so I choose the best options I can. Walking, outside work, and serious playing with the "adolescent" dogs. They are some fast runners to catch.
I have a few goals, physical and mental, that I need to meet daily. They must be tracked or I will never remember what I have done.
1. Eat right. Just because it has a healthy label, doesn't mean I can eat it. It must be planned into the menu or goals will be blown up. Bananas are good, ten bananas are not.
2. Drink water. Force it down your throat. It must be drank. It tastes good, refreshing...too bad I'm never thirsty.
3. Actually count steps until I get a pedometer. I know it is 275 steps out to the shop at work and back to my desk. So 4 trips a day does not equal 10,000.
4. SLEEP, the laundry can wait.
5. Don't let the kids discourage you. You are not making pizza for dinner.
6. Don't let the husband who says "I like curves" make you feel you don't need to lose. 60 pounds is overweight whether he thinks so or not.
7. Love yourself. If I don't take care of me, then nothing else matters. I don't want more pills, I want less. I am not ugly. I can lose weight. I can be happy.
8. If nothing else, remember...Cardio and veggies got us there for several years. It can do it again. Failure to maintain when the goal is met is not an option. Moderation is key.

Glad to have you back! You know it works! Do you have a smartphone? The apps really help because you can track no matter where you are and don't have to remember what you ate. Our memories, as you know, are selective. emoticon
