The TRUTH, like it or not.....

Friday, January 04, 2013

Yes, it's true. I've been playing at losing/maintaining my weight since August 2012. My hips hurt then, so instead of taking a 3-4 day break and getting back on the wagon, I took the easy way out and just stopped my regular walking regime. Then it was a 3 week vacation, with some (but not enough) walking and too much eating. Then it was Christmas. A late December visit to friends landed 4 more pounds on these old hips (and other places), and I could tell things were on a downhill slide.

So today is the day....an early morning walk UPHILL that I haven't done but once since August. Surprisingly my time wasn't as bad as I'd expected. A healthy breakfast. A good night's sleep last night. 20 points on the SP bonus wheel. All these positives should help me keep on track for TODAY. I think it was yesterday I read a blog here that gave me a boost....just worry about today. Good advice for life, not just eating/exercising etc.

    I try to look at this journey as recovery too. In fact, I know I'm addicted to carbs, particularly bread. The only solution is to get rid of all that stuff. If it's there, I'll eat it sooner or later.

    Getting through this one day at a time is my focus right now. No more mini-cheats!
