restarting again...

Thursday, July 23, 2009

I haven't gotten on the scale since dh got home from the hospital and low and behold am up over ten lbs. I'm really not surprised I've been eating a lot of comfort foods while cooking healthy for dh. Things like chocolate, chips and things that are not good for me either. I've been doing it at work, running errands and just getting so out of control, I'm really surprised the scale is not higher. Anyways, I have decided enough is enough, I need to be healthy not only for dh but for myself and quit wallowing in myself. I've been and will be working alot of overtime at least til fall when dh is back on his feet full time. I haven't ridden my horses either and I trhink they are getting sick of me just doing nothing and keeping them as yard ornaments. So today I started, not totally south beach phase 1 but much healthier. Exercise will come in time when I am ready. My gf wants me to run a 5k on labor day, just don't know. I was doing so well with exercisng bu I will get there again.

    Those things can really derail your progress but you are at a great time to make a clean re-start. A little at a time and you will succeed. Good luck!

    Well at least you are getting back in the saddle so to speak. You can do! Just wake up in the morning and put your best foot forward.
