I have been slacking in all kinds of things in life lately. But, in the last week I have gotten back at it and really paying attention to what is going on. It was just little things here and there, but I am really going to work at making changes. Today I had a Slim Fast for breakfast and a fiber bar for a snack. I have stocked up on Slim Fast and am going to get some more. I am really, really bad about not eating breakfast before I leave the house, and then lately I have made it worse by going through the drive thru to get something. Yuck. And, I have felt yuck. I know Slim Fast is not the best thing in the world, but it is better than fast food. And, if I add some fruit it is not super bad. And, I got it on sale and had a buy one get one free coupon. I have some more coupons, so I am going to get some more.
I know myself well, and I know that I tend to eat a lot of convenience foods. I am often busy, so I know that I need to work hard at making those convenience foods healthier choices. Fresh foods instead of drive thrus and things like that. I managed to lose about 10lbs in May, and I have hovered at putting 5 of it back on.
My free gym membership expired, so I emailed the guy this morning to see if I could get one for this year. :) The place was really nice and if I can get up and go first thing in the morning, I know that I will feel AMAZING!!! Oh...and now that I can almost get up in the morning, I know it will be even better. I have been taking my vitamin D, and it is slowly starting to help.
Here's to a New Year...but not a new me, just a better me that I want to be!
