Sex has many purposes:
I was diagnosed with diabetes 10/10 (A1C of 7.1) and I decided at that very moment, this was not going to be a part of me.
Get the kids involved and you will see how much they motivate you. My kids remind me to log my food and they love to exercise with me. They even read labels while we grocery shop and make good suggestions about what to buy. They also love being able to measure food on the food scale and with the measuring cups. This has turned out to be fun and we all are enjoying our new lifestyle.
To keep myself from getting SCALE RAGE, I had my kids hide the scale and made them promise not to tell me where it is until my weigh in dates. This keeps me from weighing myself everyday and being pissed off and eventually giving up like I have done so many times before.
In order to get a lot of the good stuff(fruits and veggies) in, I make smoothies which are easier to drink.
Had to convince hubby to join me on SparkPeople and now he is my best buddy. So this weekend, we started a little contest by accident. We try to see who can stay within their Spark calories from food and calories burned as well as trying to outdo the other in cardio. The kids are now taking sides between me and the hubby. Naturally, my daughter is on my side and my son is on daddy's side. Try a little family competition; eating healthy and exercising becomes fun instead of work.
