The trip to Cuba was nice. We took the time, my husband and I, to relax. The Cubans are great people and the beach was fantastic.
Now back to reality....
I finaly got on the scale and it wasn't good... I'm back to 248 pounds.
I really have to stop kidding myself and do what I have to do to lose weight. It's not like it is a secret recipe! I know what to do I just have to do it. time to stop putting everything off till tomorrow.
While in Cuba, I met this woman who was vacationning with her 9yrs old boy. After a few days, she told us a short version of her story. 3 years ago she lost her other 2 children. he ex took the 3 kids for a ride, went into the woods, set fire to the truck with a propane tank with him and the 3 kids inside. Her 3yrs old daughter and 9yrs old son died in the fire. her 6yrs old managed to get away and her ex's body was found in the woods the next day. Seeing how she is managing to stay sane after that and seeing how her son is managing... Well it kind of puts my little problems into perspective.
Life can be short, life can be hard that is true. But life can be great, it can be loving it can be anything I want. As long as I make the most of it. I have a choice. I can stay in my corner crying on how I can't do it (for whatever reason) or I can stand up and take a step forward. So right now, I am getting up and I intend to start walking. No more excuses, no more laziness... I am doing this for me.
Right now I can't really walk and it annoys me. I'm used to walk a lot and my foot doesn't seem to want it. But the thing is I can still do exercises... There is my backyard pool I can use, I can also do cardio on a chair. It's not like walking is the only form of exercise that exists!
So here are my goals.
- track my food
- eat 3 meals and 2 snacks a day
- respect the 443 to 530 calories per meal and the 221-265 calories per snack range
- track exercises and aim for 10 minutes a day.
I know I can do this if I put my mind to it.
