New Effort - Old Problem

Thursday, May 23, 2013

Another birthday just slipped by and I am reminded that I'm even worse in terms of weight than I was at the last birthday. And there is no one but myself to be held accountable. I have allowed stress to rule and gone back to oh so easy bad habits like snacking in the evening, baking brownies and then eating them and finding any excuse to avoid the exercise that ALWAYS makes me feel better.

BUT that was then and this is now. Bob and I started back to our Pilates class last week and it felt amazing. We are riding our bikes to the office as often as we can and I'm getting out into my garden for not only the exercise but the piece of mind that gardening brings to me.

I am setting myself a realistic goal. I weighed in for my birthday at 223.5 - ARGGGH!!! Goal #1 - 220 within two weeks - so 220 by June 5. AND exercise in some way every single day. One step at a time because I am sooooo worth it!

    The consistent planning and taking those actions have great results. You'll be establishing a new pattern of healthy eating and fun activity very soon.

    It's so easy to fall into those old eating habits when stress hits. Been there done that, many times. Good for you for setting small attainable goals to help get back on track.

    Great job getting back on track. I can fully understand the issue of not being where you wanted to be on your birthday. I had the same problem for the last several years. emoticon
