Just had a DUH moment. I've not been eatting to well lately, yet I stay within my calories USUALLY. I went to get something off the food shelf tonight & realized, I havent been shopping in about a mth. I usually go evey 2wks when hubby gets paid. Things have been hectic around here lately & now with going to the hospital almost everyday to over c my Dad's care. So now what m I cing on the shelves all the types of food that I usaully try not to eat, u know the type of stuff that sits on the shelf 4eva. I also have that stuff theat other ppl give u or comes in a holiday food basket, (others ppl don't want anymore). So wat I do is eat wats here & then b on my way. Well it's not working 4 me. I now know that food shopping is a very important part of eating properly. So I guess it's about time to go food shopping HEALTHY STYLE.
I believe that organic may be healthier cause of not using all of the stuff . They r realizing that alot of thing can cause health problems later in life.
What I don't understand is why do they have to charge soo much more money for food that supposively u didnt add all that stuff to.
I HATE clothes shopping.
I hate trying on clothes.
So I started buying clothes that I knew would fit, baggy clothes. Well hubby decided that I shouldn't have to go around looking like a bag lady. He found the perfect excuse, the Christian school that I volunteer @ was having a Christmas dinner & pageant. So we went to walmart to pick up my Dads meds, looked around found every excuse not to get anything, we missed our bus so had time to kill. Decided to stop in Conway, seen some cute stuff - I love that they have CUTE bra & pantie sets that fit & give support. Well I decided to buy a few I SHOULD FIT REAL SOON SHIRTS - they kind of fit over my t-shirt.
Well tonite was the dinner n I wore a new outfit & it fit n it was the best feeling in the world.
Tonight when we walked in it wasn't Y IS HE WITH HER he skinny n she fat (u know ppl say it loud enough 4 u 2 hear) , what I heard was WOW THEY MAKE A CUTE COUPLE, she looks different.
I don't remember the last time I felt this good. This was better then the I LOST 16 lbs. No more looking like a bag lady 4 me
I have along way to go but I know I can do it now.
This year I will not sit next to the desert table @ church. I will cook healthier foods. I will track my calories. I will exercise when I'm suppose to regardless as to whether or not it is a holiday or special occasion. If I go to a buffet I will eat the veggies ( they r easier to track when I m out).
This is a new me I will not continue with bad habits, I will replace them all with good habits.
Changing some of my habits wasn't as hard as I thought it would be.
Problem that I m having now is that pain gets worse due to the cold - so I can't do my exercising in the morning. It really helped me to get up & go walk my mile. Come home eat breakfast, take care of my dad. House work done by lunch. Eat lunch then on certain days strengthen exercise. But now I'm not starting my day till about 11, so I'm eating breakfast @ noon.
I need to figure out a way to go back to my changed habits - I was doing soooo well.
One things that I did realize that changing habits aren't the hard - the problem is when there r obstacles.
But I will focus on getting back on track. Guess I need to start using that electric heater that is in storage in my room to keep me warmer.
The new year will be a different year of GOOD habits
