Deja Vu

Saturday, October 19, 2019

It makes me sad to say that I do believe I am back at square one. I know it didn't happen over night but I am not sure how this happened. Not only have I gained the weight back (and some), now I have high blood pressure. That didn't happen overnight as well. Recently, they put me on some BP meds for good reason. I am really hoping I won't be on them long. I'd like to say this time I am wiser.

I've been doing cardio and eating veggies but I need to up my game.. so that's what I shall do. Right now, I probably work out about 3 times a week which I'll try to increase to 5 times. As for veggies, I probably eat about 3-4 servings which I am going to try to increase 6 servings for fruit and veggies each. If you know any veggie based meals, please drop them in the comments.

In addition to the veggies, I am going to try to consistently get 30 minutes of aerobic exercise 5 days a week until the end of October. Than increase it by 15 minutes in November and again in December so I get up to 60 minutes.

    My dear, most of the time the weight creep is hare to see till it smacks you in the face!

    Anyhow, you have a plan.

    My quick trick for veggies: I try to sneak veggies in for breakfast having a veggie omelet. Raw veggies/hummus or the like for lunch. Always have a salad w/veggies w/supper.

    Another trick, especially in the cold weather, is soup. You can pack it w/veggies. Or pasta sauce. Load it up. And use pasta alternatives (no they don't taste like pasta, but they're good!) like veggie spirals form zucchini (zoodles).

    Just some ideas.

    HUGS and hang in there.
