Back in the saddle--I hope

Thursday, January 22, 2009

I have been feeling frustrated the past few weeks about maintaining healthy food/exercise routines. Sometimes it just seems like something always comes along to knock me off the horse--illness, holidays, travel, some external event, my cycles, stress, whatever. We took a week-long road trip right after the holidays, bought a house (so lots of paperwork now we're in contract), got back and we all got really sick for 2 weeks, things are just now starting to feel a little "normal" again. I put on 5 lbs and am feeling frustrated. I don't feel I have a very good "center" yet when it comes to food and fitness. I guess it takes time to build healthy habits and the change is going to be slow. I just really want it this time and am putting a lot more attention on it than I have before.

I decided to change my username to SkinnyagainCo as I will be moving to Colorado this summer, woo hoo! emoticon


Finally! Yipee!

Today was the first day I have been able to come in under my allotted fat grams. I am still about 100 calories over my calorie allowance but getting closer. It really takes a LOT of focus to pay attention to what I eat and get/stay inside the calorie count. I am going to just really focus on that until it gets easy, then work on the exercise more. I try to do everything all at once and then get really disappointed when I can't juggle everything. I'm too hard on myself which makes it hard to change--feels like another thing I have to be perfect at.

    Eventually, reading the lables on foods you buy will become a natural thing. Once you realize how much salt or fat etc., is in the foods you'd normally eat, you'll be surprised at how quickly reading lables becomes a habit. You can do it! It just takes one small step after another!
