The Reluctant Dieter :)

That is what I felt like yesterday (Monday). Admittedly, I didn't tackle the first day with much gusto. It was all about just getting through it. I have had a sick three year old for several days and that has been the focus of my energy. I didn't get to go to the grocery store so that left hard choices with meals. But, I made it and stayed within my calorie range.
So, as night time approached and I had not worked out I was talking it over (whining) with my teenage daughter. It went something like this, " I just don't feel like exercising for 45 minutes!" She said, "Mom, you are in control of your body. It is not in control of you."
Where does she get this stuff? Well, she is right and since she has been asking me to help her be more active and tone up I knew I had to be the adult and JUST DO IT!
Since I am typing this blog it is proof that although I thought the exercise would kill me it didn't.
Today's goal would be to get more water in and try to get to town so that the meals I planned can happen.
Although I am not exactly fired-up about trying again to lose weight, today I feel a little more positive about it than I did yesterday. That is moving in the right direction. Anyway, I've done the "all-fired-up-burn-out-fast" thing several times before.
