Five years already!

It has been five years that I stopped smoking, and decided to work on my excess weight.

I have been very successful with the no smoking part, but not so much with the losing weight... I keep losing, then gaining back. And the cycle starts again.

It is time now to re-evaluate what I am doing wrong. I think I stay on a diet that is too restrictive, and when I allow myself a little "break", this turns into several months of over eating.

Raising a handicapped son all by my myself is stressful, but I tend to use this as an excuse to over eat.

So, let's pick up the momentum and see what we can do to get back on track, shall we?

My Goals:
Lose weight s-l-o-w-l-y while continuing to stay smoke-free (N.O.P.E = Not One Puff Ever).

Rewarding myself:
-10 pounds: new workout shoes and socks on 5/16/15
-20 pounds:
-30 pounds:
-40 pounds:
-50 pounds:

My Program:
- Eat balanced meals, not too restrictive calorie-wise.
- Increase my vegetable and fruit consumption.
- Exercise every day, even if this is only 10 minutes a day. I need to keep moving because of arthritis that is getting worse when I am inactive.

Personal Information:
I am originally from France, but now live in Virginia. We go every year on vacation on Lake Superior (in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan) and we love it there!

Other Information:
I recently joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and it has brought wonderful changes in my life.
I love to read (theology and history books) and I listen to classical music (J.S. Bach is my favorite composer).

"In the forest, there was a crooked tree and a straight tree. Every day, the straight tree would say to the crooked tree, "Look at me...I'm tall, and I'm straight, and I'm handsome. Look at you...you're all crooked and bent over. No one wants to look at you." And they grew up in that forest together. And then one day the loggers came, and they saw the crooked tree and the straight tree, and they said, "Just cut the straight trees and leave the rest." So the loggers turned all the straight trees into lumber and toothpicks and paper. And the crooked tree is still there, growing stronger and stranger every day.” ~ Tom Waits

Don't be worried if you didn't stay on your "straight and narrow path" to your goal today. Tomorrow is another day, and you will be stronger in the end.

Merci beaucoup pour votre gentil commentaire sur mon blog, Véronique. Je prends toujours beaucoup d'eau avec moi quand je pars en randonnée (je marche environ 4 heures ces temps-ci, mais j'espère faire davantage très bientôt). Hier j'ai bu 2 litres en 4 heures, mais j'en avais apporté 4 avec moi : on ne sait jamais, on peut se fouler la cheville et devoir attendre les secours, etc. Je préfère être prévoyante, surtout en été quand il fait chaud ! En hiver, je prends moins d'eau, mais j'en ai toujours, et souvent dans une thermos, du thé chaud pour me réchauffer (en été je mets les bouteilles bien froides dans un sac isotherme, ça les maintient un peu au frais).

J'espère que votre semaine a bien débuté ! emoticon emoticon
