I remember

Tuesday, August 25, 2009

I have been struggling trying to figure out what I did before that led me to shed 20 lbs. I think that I figured it out. I have the cardio down pat, but not enough strenghtening exercises. But also, my eating habits. I went back to cooking what was easiest for us all. BIG MISTAKE! The only way I am going to start shedding again is eating lots of fruits and veggies. I am finding the discipline that I had not too long ago. Last nite, I cooked one meal, but I had to eat it or I would have gone under my calories for the day. That was easy. Today, I brought my lunch to work as usual, but not the usual sandwich. I have reincorporated my veggies back into lunch and not just at dinner. Instead of 100 calorie snack packs, I have brought fruit and veggies back for snack.

This all makes me wonder if I was loosing my mind. I knew that there was an easy solution to it all, I just had to sit and reevaluate the situation. I went back to reading articles that I had read in the beginning of my time here on SP.

I did have a 2fer Monday. Cardio at lunch and Strength while watching Dance You Ass Off. What an inspiring show. I admire all the contestants and how they have managed to change their lives. I want that change and I am going to get that change.

IT IS UP TO ME.
I CAN DO THIS.
NO ONE WILL DO IT FOR ME.
I HAVE WHAT IT TAKES!

    I understand completely. I have 2 young kids & they do not eat what we eat. We told my daughter when kids turn 8 (she's 7 - BDay in Sept!!) they have to start eating the meal that is put on the table - or at LEAST try a new food. Maybe my 5 yr old boy will just join us!! (Right!)
