The Reluctant Dieter :)


Tuesday, February 07, 2012

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." emoticon 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. emoticon

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.

    What a wonderful daughter you have!
To think, when we were kids, we just wanted to be adults. Now that we are, we are left with those tough decisions. So, lets roll up the sleeves and get it done.
Thankfully, we have practice in weaving fun into the must mundane of chores.

    You got over a significant hurdle. Please give yourself credit. I know exactly what you mean about all-fired-up-burn-out-fast. I have done that so many times.

Just a small step. You can do that today. They really do add up. Three cheers for you and your daughter both!

    Aren't kids amazing! My son is so supportive of me, and sounds like your daughter is, too! Makes us realize we owe it to them to be healthy so we can keep embarrassing them...hey, it's our job! ;-)
