I can't believe it's already Friday tomorrow. The weeks are flying by.
I'm very happy with my new lifestyle change and very happy with being able to exercise - and I'm enjoying it!!! I think that's why the weeks are flying by.
Sometimes when I think back to just the middle of August and to the fact that I couldn't walk even 10 meters, to where I am today, less than 2 months later is amazing to me. I was completely inactive for 22 months. Today I did the 2 mile indoor walk for the first time. I completed it although I was not as fast at the pace, but I did it!
I'm enjoying eating healthier. I feel much better and am not sick to my stomach after eating like before as I can't tolerate the fatty foods. I enjoy eating beans and whole wheat pasta and rices. They are actually more flavorful! I never ate beans before unless I was forced (LOL!) but now I am looking for new recipes on how to use and cook them in different ways.
I drink all my water and then some with pleasure. It's now my favorite drink and I don't even look for the sodas anymore. Every once in a while I put the juice from an orange or lemon to flavor the water.
My biggest problem is now and always has been.....I can't keep the house clean or organized. This is another goal of mine, unkept at this point. My husband says it takes me two weeks to organize a room and a half a day to disorgnize it.....he is right, but it takes me a month to organize and 5 minutes to disorganize. Oh well! It's a gene I inherited from my mother.
