Time to start Over with the Basics

Thursday, November 29, 2012

OK, so 2012 was crazy & I did not take care of myself at all.
We had craziness all year, made 2 trips to FL, 3 to IL, with another one scheduled for Christmas.

I had children get married, renew vows, give us another grandchild. My brother died after fighting for 3 1/2 years and some of the last conversations will haunt me awhile. I spent a month in FL with my mother, fighting my anger at her for being so lazy all her life that a lot of her issues are from her weight, while putting 10 pounds on while I was there.
I felt like I could not get any type of routine going. But, really, just an excuse, isn't it?

Just getting it out there for myself, cuz 2013 is just around the corner and I am finally ready to get my walk/run shoes heated up again. I am going back to vegetarianism on Jan 1st. Not for any noble reasons, just because that is the only time I seem to get a handle on my weight, When I stop eating meat I have to pay more attention to my choices. AND, it is the best for the planet, but we won't get into that. I thought about starting now, but know I would not get through Christmas in IL & I know my all or nothing attitude would cause me grief on Jan 1st.
I would feel I had already failed and I refuse to go into 2013 with that mindset.

What I AM willing to do starting today is write my food down. Nope, not counting points or calories, simply wriing what I put in my mouth, cuz I have not been doing that for a long time & I need to begin somewhere. Sat is Dec 1st, I will start counting points then.


1) LOG FOOD!!!!!

2) Floor Exercises , Crunches & Leg Lifts

3) At least 20 minutes Exercise DAILY!
(I know should be 30, but hey, just restarting)

Not much, but hey, in 2005 I started with only a promise of 25 crunches a day and got under 200. I am real big on not setting myself up for failure in this stage of the game.
