Food - 80%
Tuesday, February 19, 2019
So fitness and movement is my thing, and has been since high school. Which was a VERY long time ago. I need to move to keep my weight down and more importantly my attitude UP.
I learned in my 20's that walking and any other activity that got my heart rate up really helped me with the battle with depression. Movement is my medicine.
That said, it's only part of the equation. I know this for certain, but somehow I got lost along the way and began eating (and drinking) my way up to 180 lbs. Way to much for this 5'5.5" tall frame. Weight Watchers helped me 10 years ago realize that my portions had gotten out of control.
I am a very good forgetter though.....and here I am with over 12 pounds added back to me - this morning I struggled to button up a pair of work trousers I hadn't worn in a few months. Reality check!!!!
So back to the basics.
1 - track my food
2 - be honest and track it even when I ate too much
3 - measure when in doubt
4 - think positive.
5 - love myself through this time
6 - and of course keep moving - never stop the exercise
It's not really so hard, but I resist the tracking and measuring. I get a little stubborn and act like a 12 year old - but here I am looking at my 60th birthday in July. I want to feel proud of myself and promise myself to do better.
