I will make good choices....I will make good choices....

Saturday, September 07, 2013

I keep having to repeat that to myself this morning. I sat down earlier this week and planned my meals. I mean, really planned my meals and my snacks. I tried to make breakfast and lunch very simple. My suppers aren't as healthy as I would like, but I'm also feeding my husband. I can be extra careful at night and really watch my portions. I'm also going to try and add extra veggies to the main meal. He isn't a big fan of vegetables so I can choose what I want and load up on that.

Now, if I can just get off my hind end and work out. I did so good at the beginning of the year when I was entered into the biggest loser contest at school. I don't know if they are going to be doing it again, but unfortunately I'm thinking about it. I really hated the stress of it near the end. I can get very depressed about how things are going, but the nice thing is that it did keep me focused for several months. (Plus I earned "buzz bucks" to use to pay my way out of lunch duty. lol)

I am anxiously awaiting for Aldi's to open so that I can start my new week. I'm REALLY tired of wearing these same jeans that don't fit. I'm not small enough to fit down into the next size I have here at the house, so I thought I might use that as motivation to make better choices. I have said that I don't want to buy new jeans until I'm down where I want to be, but I would like a decent pair that I could wear for jeans day at school.

I have also been very stressed out this past week with work and kids. Usually my health gets pushed to the back burner until things settle down a bit. It's just an easy thing to "let go" while I try to focus on other stuff. However, the weird thing is, if I would make healthy food choices and work out, then maybe I wouldn't be AS stressed. I would feel better and maybe be able to deal better with the stress that is going on.

Here I go....

    Planning is super helpful. I've found life goes a lot more smoothly when I do that! I, too, need to be doing the workout thing more seriously. Exercise is the hardest part for me.

    Good luck making better choices and getting the stress under control!
