Yesterday, as I was preparing to go out shopping with my husband for the day, I had to decide what I would wear. I chose a pair of jeans I had not worn in three weeks. Boy, not good. Tight indeed. I could still wear them, but not very comfortably. I then decided to look in the mirror without my shirt on and see just how bad it looked. Yes, that was a good decision, even though it made me sick. What have I done to myself?? I have been in denial and have let myself get way out of control.
Rude awakening? Yes! Needed to be awakened?? YES!! Maybe I should take a picture of myself like that to remind myself of just why I will be taking better care of myself.
I have twin boys that will be graduating in May and I want to be able to have a choice in what I wear for their special day and look and feel good in it!
Continue with my good habits
1. exercise every day, even if it is not intense (my body does need to rest at least one day)
2. Drink plenty of water
3 choose lean meats and healthy fats
4 eat plenty of vegetables and fruits
Things I need to work on
1 weigh and measure food
2 be consistent in eating the right way
3 log food eaten each day
4 bake less often to keep tempting treats out of my sight
Today has been a really good day for me so far, as far as doing all these things. One day at a time is how I will reach my goals!!!
I would love for some of you sparkers to check up on me!!
