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?

Fitness Minutes: 131,302

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: new book (an essay in French) on 7/25/15
-30 pounds: Christmas music CD on 12/5/15
-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).

Oh, Sundae eventually got up and started moving less than 5 mins. You see, he chooses where we walk and there are certain pathways that he just doesn't like to go on for some reason or another. Or somedays he just is not in the mood to walk. Today was one of those days. He is perfectly fine, just in control where he wants to go. He has always been like this ever since I brought him home. I usually don't bring my phone anymore but today I did so listening to my podcast was great while he was deciding which way to go.

HAPPY FRIDAY!

Nobody knows the truffles I’ve seen. . .

I eat chocolate with my wine so that I’m not drinking wine on an empty stomach.

Everyone thinks a girl’s dream is to find the perfect guy. Pfft . . . .
In reality, every girl’s dream is to get thin by eating chocolate.

Anything with raisins in it would be 10 times better with chocolate chips instead; For example, a box of raisins.

If dark chocolate is less fattening, eat your chocolate with the lights out. Problem Solved!

You have your hands full. I wish there was something I can do on my end. Can your neighbors help out at all?
