Yes, you heard it here folks, it is time to reboot the system.
I have gotten too lazy and it is showing up on my back side! lol
So, tomorrow (well later today since it is 3am) I will be stepping on the scale. I need to find out just where I am. I am not going to take measurements until the first of November. I like to do them on the first of the month. Okay so I might change my mind on that but for now, I'm not going to do it.
I am going to reboot, and get a fresh outlook and mindset for this journey. I think I am going to map it out in a different direction so to speak as I am finding this route a bit like a desert. I need some more scenery. I need to break this thing down into shorter trips and not look so much at the overall journey. Frankly, 200+ pounds to lose is just way too long a road to look at right now and I just get overwhelmed and return home if you know what I mean!
The holiday season is upon us so I have to REALLY get this plan cemented down. I don't want to head into Thanksgiving and Christmas without a well laid out plan.
My daughter and I have decided to part ways in the kitchen. We were cooking together for the whole family. We took turns cooking so that neither one of us had to cook everyday. Beginning next month, I go back to cooking for myself and the hubster. It is difficult for me to only cook for 2 but if I find things that freeze well, I will be set.
Exercise, well I am going to go back to my dancing and now that we have a new puppy, I am taking her outside several times a day and we walk around the yard. I am not up to going down the street yet but this does help get some more movement.
So then with my meds and water consumption, I have to really work on the water. I have gotten to the point that I am only getting about 4 glasses of water a day and here and there with the meds. Tomorrow, this is going to change. I have to be consistent with the meds and get the water up to 12 glasses minimum. I can feel it in my body that I need to get this straightened out. I know I will feel much better and it will be the beginning of getting my glucose in range so that I can get off the meds again. I did it once so I know I can do it again.
I posted on my Facebook fan page that I had been doing pretty well with my eating but then this morning, I found myself standing in the kitchen with my face half-way through a cream filled donut! Talk about mindless eating! lol
Well, it is nice to be back here blogging a bit tonight but the clock is telling me that it is getting really late and I need to get to bed so I can get up in time for a business meeting! So with that....
Much love and goodnight!
