Reboot - Starting over

Monday, January 09, 2017

Ack - at my heaviest since pregnancy, closing in on how heavy I was during pregnancy.

So many excuses - but the main one is I'm tired and having a hard time keeping my motivation up. But looking in the mirror last night, and stepping on the scale . . . I didn't like what I saw. And I don't like what I feel. I'm tired all the time, I ache, I feel over all gross.

I have a doctor's apt next month anyway, so I'll get all my labs done and make sure there is nothing medically holding me back. But in the meantime:

1. My primary goal this week is tracking. It is one of my weak spots, and I know its important to do.
2. Get my kitchen cleaned up and all the junk out of it. Restock with healthier alternatives.
3. Cook simple, healthy meals - I know if I go overboard with complex recipes I'll get frustrated but lean meats and veggies are easy to prepare, don't make a lot of mess and taste good.

On a side note, my husband's blood pressure was up at his last doctor visit. So we want to try addressing that with diet/exercise before going on meds. So while I know I need to make the changes for myself, it will benefit him too.

I have a gift certificate for a massage, that is my reward for meeting my first weight goal. For reaching my goal of tracking for one week, my reward will be a new plant. I love gardening but haven't started bringing plants into the home. But this is something I want to do.

So - goals set, weight recorded, breakfast recorded, snack planned . . . off we go.

    I hope your plan is working well for you. A healthy diet, exercise, and getting enough sleep are so crucial to getting healthy. So smart to keep it simple and make it something that you can stick with. Enjoy your massage!
