Time to move .. forward?

Monday, February 04, 2019

It is always hard to say, you have to start over, or begin again - but for me it has a brand new meaning. I have lost over 20 lbs from when I started many years ago, and that is great - I can't seem to get out of the 240's. But beginning or moving now, means I have lost my husband to cancer, and now I have to figure out what normal looks like - and HOW now, do I get exercise in with 3 kids that always need something. I started with the 10 minutes a day challenge - and it was been awesome. I use my constant trips to the bathroom(because I drink so much water) to do squats and hamstring raises, and it will be small constant things that get me moving forward. Last night before the super bowl, we all took a family walk - with the dogs and let my 9 year old ride her bike - I know that will be the way as the weather gets better -- to walk everynight! I will evidently have to up the intensity, but for now, with the Gout, and the stress. I will get there .. 1 lb at a time. I am down 1.8 lbs from last week, and I have no idea how?! I ate rice, although it was brown rice (does that make it better?) I am adding more fruit and vegetables. But I need to find a way for more fiber? What do you guys do? I couldn't believe how low I was on fiber all day?

Well I will try to get back to blogging more - it is good for the soul .. and keep cheering each other on .. it really does make all the difference in the world!

    I am so sorry for your loss. I am doing the 10 min exercise daily challenge as well and have a minimum of 50 lbs to lose. Do what you can and little by little you can do more.

    The exercise is so good for your mind, too. It's a great stress reliever.

    I cannot imagine the heartache at losing your DH. So very sorry. emoticon

    Just remember - one choice, one meal, one step, one day at a time.

    Keep up the walking with the kids, the rice, fruit & veggies, the water and squats on bathroom trips. It sounds like you had a great week!
