so, here i am taking a poll...
which is easier for you?
is it easier for you to amp up your work outs(i.e. working out longer, more intensity, more variety, more sweating)?
is it easier for you to eat less calories, use new healthier recipes, use less salt, less pre-packaged food, cut out fast food?
my husband and i were discussing (well, HE was discussing "I" was ranting, moaning, complaining, griping) how i am working out longer, more often, more intensity, and not losing weight. then HE in all his "wisdomy" (yes, that is a word i made up. i actually make up a lot of words when i am frustrated!) said, "well, hon, how are your calories? still eating a lot of pre-packaged stuff?"
what the heck??? i wanted, "awww, honey, that's not fair! i don't understand!"
then we discussed how i LOVE to work out, and could do it all day, if i could... and the heck with eating right! when i did this 4 years ago, i just ate more moderately, and cut out most fast foods, and worked out, and "POOF!"
off came 40 pounds! okay, okay, so it wasn't just "POOF!" but this time is SOOOO much harder(insert very whiny voice here!)!
i really don't WANT to give up a lot of my faves! that's not fair! i AM working out, i should be able to eat half-way descent and still lose the weight. ah... there's the rub... HALF-WAY... i can't do it half way and get the results i want.
working out is so easy for me... but eating? well, let's just say, i am the MOST picky ADULT eater there is out there! heck, i am even pickier than most kids, thus my problem. seriously, who wants to eat a pizza without extra cheese, and ham and bacon and green peppers on it? i just wish ONCE they would show a contestant like me on the biggest loser, or extreme weight loss, or WHATEVER show! a contestant that can't STAND eating cauliflower, greens, poached salmon, or ANY seafood for that matter! let's see how those trainers, and chefs do with a person like me! oh yeah, they have had "picky" eaters, sure right! but seriously, there is NO WAY i could go to subway and get an all veggie sub! P-LEASE! i am a CARNIVORE! i love red meat, baked potatoes (slathered in butter and SALT).
of course, this is just me whining (be thankful you aren't with me 24-7, like my husband! lol!). i am gonna try to eat better, i just hope that i can start to like foods that are more healthy, i am getting the exercise down, now it is on to conquering the foods.
ANYway, which is easier for you?
