Those who know me know my husband has been struggling with health problems for months and that has been worrisome for me. Without going into details about his health I'll just say it seems the doctors didnít know what to do to help him. Fortunately, he has been doing much better the past week and that is helping to turn our lives back to almost normal again. I havenít been able to get on my teams regularly as I love to do, but Iím slowly getting back to doing that again also.
What those months did to me was drastic or should I be honest and say what "I" did to me was drastic? I finally got on my scales this morning because I KNEW I had gained weight and I had to know how much! Iíd been sitting a lot, keeping the house quiet for hubby, and of course my backside broadened with being so sedentary and when I just sit, I eat!! I could tell I was getting bigger by how snug my clothes were feeling on me but I would not get on the scales because I didnít want to see the numbers . . . kind of like the ostrich, I kept my head buried in the sand. This morning I got brave and stepped on them! OH MY I surely did gain!
Itís time for me to get my head out of the sand, get myself back to the real world again and start taking better care of myself. I wasnít showing any respect for my body by filling my tummy non-stop. Though I tried staying with good food, I ate too much. And yes, you can eat too much of any kind of food, even the good stuff . . . it's all about portion size.
So from today on, Iím going to take charge of my body, going to treat it as the temple it is and only put nourishing food in it, in the right amounts. Iíll get on my exercise bike faithfully and will try hard to get out walking the stores . . . I mean the inside perimeters of the stores, not browsing and stopping to shop!
I need all the encouragement I can get from my friends and also daily pep talks to myself. If you have any advice, any tips, any suggestions, please feel free to share them . Iím a good Ďlistenerí and I take everything said to me, to heart.
NEW DAY, NEW WEEK, NEW BEGINNINGS!
