40 before 40 - day 1

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

So, I will be 40 years old on December 28, 2013 and I am not going to blow out those candles at this weight. I just returned from shopping for a party on Friday night and guess what??? I hated everything. It was so depressing and even worse because there is no one to blame but me!

I am already working at getting more active. I work for Todd, my husband, so I have chances that most dont. If I am sleepy, I can get up and buzz around the building for a while. I can take my son out to ride his bike in the parking lot and walk laps while he is out there. But more than that, I control how many hours I spend sitting and how many times I get up and move daily.

Also, I do all the shopping and cooking for this family. So crap in the house and on the table falls squarely on me. I have to find a way to get us all eating better. Todd has been sick and sick and sick and I know that is because we are not using food as medicine for his high blood pressure etc.

Goals.....week 1 :

Drink more water and less soda. I would like to cut it out entirely except in a restaurant, but I am not ready for that one yet. One a day or none would be a huge improvement.

Three days of good outside time. My daughter needs me to get her butt up and moving along with mine. So, I will send them out, and tag along to be sure we are getting fresh air and I am setting a good example. Yesterday I pulled them both (80 lbs!!!) on the sled and then walked around and around the snow hill while Trevor shoveled and played. Good stuff

I will eat grapefruit every single morning....for the fiber and the water.
