Where do I go from here?
Sunday, May 26, 2013
I need to get healthy. It seems like the only support I have is my 4 year old. Taser is always wanting to take turns working out, encouraging me to make healthy decisions when I am eating and drinking. Taser does not understand that what seems like a two second turn exercise turn only annoys me. My husband and mother-in-law encourage me to get healthy with words. But their actions says something entirely different. At one point I was having to cook four meals at each meal time. So at best I need to set down meal time rules. Not sure how to do that just that I want more for my life than to be the family cook and dishwasher. Especially when even if you fix everybody their own special meal they still usually refuse to eat it.
The next issue I had last time I was trying to get healthy was that SparkCoach was making me mad daily. I had signed up for SparkCoach trying find enjoyable ideas for getting healthy. In the beginning SparkCoach was giving me all kinds of ideas and was really helpful. By the time I gave up on getting healthy SparkCoach had moved past trying to help me get healthy and was trying to motivate me to get motivated. I mean really there is no point in trying to motivate someone to do something that they do not want to do. I want cool new food ideas and activities that would give me something to look forward to. Not just another person nagging at me about getting motivated.
The final issue I had was trying to exercise. If I exercise when Taser is up I spend more time waiting to exercise than exercising. But if I wait until he goes to bed I do not get to spend time with my husband.
So where do I go from here? I have considered trying Jenny Craig to help get the weight off. Then I could figure out where to go from there. My husband said know to that he feels like that would be unfair to me because I could not eat what everyone else is. But my thought is I do not have to eat it at every meal. Think it would be a lot better for me than the take out food they like. And I don't think it could taste much worst.
I would appreciate any ideas you could give me.
