Here We Go Again

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

Yesterday my son, my husband and my daughter all started P90X. That is definitely too intense for me. However, I started over with committing to exercise. Yesterday I did an exercise video with my 9 year old. I feel like such a wimp. This little dancing around video made me sweat (ewe!) and I was tired. Meanwhile, my daughter, son and husband work so hard they were near throwing up. I don't know about you, but I just can't get myself interested in working out that hard. it doesn't sound fun. However, I did move. I made an effort. I measured all my food and recorded it... the first time in a long time. But this eating better thing that everyone is excited about may kill me off. Everyone has their own ideas about what they want to eat. Yesterday I was a freaking restaurant! One menu for my son (who is SO! PICKY!) A kid friendly meal for my 9 year old. (meaning no fish). Special foods that can be packed... and measured for lunches. And a different meal that only my husband and I ate. The worst part is I really don't know how much to make. I never know who is going to eat what. I don't know if I'm going to survive 90 days of being a restaurant with an unending menu. But I will give it a try. Hopefully I will keep up finding time for exercise and I will keep up with the measuring of good food choices.

Here's to starting over.... again.

    You have learned too much to start over. Just recommit and you will do great.

    I eat based on South Beach. My dinner would be a lean meat and 2 non-starchy vegetables. But, I adapt it. Sometimes I eat a fattier meat that recommended because that is what I can afford. (Chicken thighs instead of expensive breasts.) Then I add some kind of carb. On days that my blood sugar is low I plan something that I can have some of. On days that it is not I choose something that I am not interested in.

    Being a restaurant is hard. I hope you can find some ways to add things to a basic meal to make it work for the entire family. Good luck to you.

    Always exercise at a level that is comfortable to you. I struggle between being hard enough and too hard. I don't want to hurt myself but, I want to make sure it counts for something. I think dancing around the room is great. I would like to be P90x strong but that is not where I am at either.

    Just keep moving forward. It will happen.
