Pulling it in tight!

Monday, April 30, 2012

Well, I definitely have to "pull it in tight" as my old WW leader would say. This weekend I was bad. emoticon

Yesterday mom made Sunday dinner. Roasted chicken with stuffing, mashed potatoes with gravy, green beans, collard greens, and biscuits. Yes, I had a little bit of everything. Actually, more than a little bit. As I was wolfing down my second plate (yes I said second plate), Kina says to me, "Mom, you know you aren't supposed to have seconds!" emoticon Now if my 9 year old is telling me this, I know there is a problem.

As I sat there with my full, aching belly, mom pulls out dessert. Pound cake and vanilla ice cream. I serve Kina her dessert and I slice myself a small piece of cake and taste a spoonful of ice cream. Kina again looks at me and makes a comment. "Mom, if your stomach hurts, why are you eating cake?" emoticon Wow, I gotta keep this kid out of my business!

So... today I'm pulling it in tight.

On my to-do list today:

1) Drink plenty of water.
2) Exercise. My current WW leader mentioned that activity is not the same as exercise. HUH? emoticon So I better work on getting my heart rate up.
3) Eat only healthy, nutritious food. No empty calories. I have had plenty this weekend.

By the end of the day, this to-do list better change into a ta-da list.

Make today great!

    and, did you have a "TA DA!" kind of a day? I did not, so you will get no "judgey judgey" from me. Yes, it is embarrassing when our little kids call us out, isn't it? I can relate to that, believe me.

    I'm sure you will do as planned and do get that heart rate up for atleast 30min consistently. Kids are smart and I'm learning to stop eating before feeling uncomfortable (really big challenge). We will support each other and make consistent improvements.

    Sometimes it's better to lead by example. Bring a healthy dish to pass or put a clamp on the portions means you still participate without giving into food guilt.

    You'll feel better, post-meal, too.

    Well at least you have a great sense of humor! :-) seems like mom isn't your biggest supporter in your efforts though. Why don't you enlist her to help you? When she has you over for dinner she could watch what she serves, maybe make it healthier, no dessert (or fruit), etc. I just would find that frustrating, as I'm very close to my mom too and if she always worked against me and my efforts, I'd start to get resentful over time. Just my thoughts!!
    Glad you made that dietician appt!!
