Beginning Again...

Wednesday, May 02, 2012

I can say that I haven't been accountable lately. I've not been eating properly... starting to get back to it and haven't been doing exercise... not getting back to that! I have been accountable in other ways so I've not been totally inept.

Starting today, Tuesday, May 1st 2012, I'm beginning again... I have spent the last year half-heartedly doing a program for weight reduction and I was getting half-hearted results. In November I retired and thought I should get adjusted to retirement before giving a program my full attention. Well, itís now been 6 months and itís time to get serious again.

I've gotten serious enough to hire a nutrition coach. Had the initial contact. Our first session actually begins on Thursday. I decided since I've been given some information, I will make the commitment for the 1st of the month. They have a list of 12 things that I can start... "little bites" at a time. Nine of them are pretty well handled, just some minor adjustments and I'll be good with those, one of them I'll have some trouble with --- eating chocolate, and the last two are BIG bugaboos for me... cooking good meals and exercising. I have only myself to cook for so I'm not really good at cooking meals. I'm from the "old" school that cooks meat and potatoes and bakes up a storm and need to change my style if I'm going to get healthier and slim down. And exercise... argh! that is painful for me... both physically and emotionally so I have some major work (mentally and emotionally) to do there.

So... here I go! Off on another adventure!!! I do know that if it wasn't for SparkPeople, I would have given up a long time ago again! And wouldn't have gotten serious enough to even hire the coach. I will also say that Iím a feisty old lady that only recently learned what a blog is and itís not in my current bag of tricks. That said, Iím going to aim to do *at least* one blog a week and I trust more. Posting is more my thing, but Iím aiming to let this ďoleí dogĒ learn new tricks.

Till next time...

    I always find myself starting again but at least you have the drive to begin this journey again. That a good start.
