A moment on the lips, forever on the hips.

Friday, October 15, 2010

I was just sitting here wishing I hadn't eaten a pierogie when I remembered what my mother always said, " a moment on the lips, forever on the hips."

I thought - ooh! a blog!

Then I thought to myself, this isn't true now. Here at SparkPeople I have learned moderation in all things.

I have learned it is ok to go over today if I am careful tomorrow.

I have learned that food isn't my life but that my life needs food for nourishment.

It's ok to eat that pierogie. The thought after the above was, ok, WATP today!

Life will go on!


P.S. WATP = Walk Away The Pounds with Leslie Sansone is a walking exercise using simple steps to burn away calories and inches with Cardio. They are reasonable and she is prolific in pumping out the workouts! I bought some new but most used at and

**edit: Today I read an article called Moderation in All Things, how appropriate!

    It is okay to enjoy a treat occasionally and walk away the pounds sounds like the best way to balance it. Thanks for sharing! HUGS!

    So true Raylin.. life will go on. You don't need to give anything up, just use moderation & the discipline you've always had in you. You know how to keep things balanced now too & have a good, regular plan for exercise in place too. All good things. WTG!

Now, what does WATP mean? I've seen you use it before & haven't been able to figure it out.
