I am in the beginning of a complete "re-boot" of my life. My children are all above 21 years old and living on their own. After years of talking about finding jobs by our lake place and moving out there, we have finally taken the plunge and done it! I am leaving behind a career in music ministry, which I loved, but the hours were crazy and left no time for my hubby and I to be a couple.
I have been in and out of healthy eating and exercise habits. My jobs in music ministry made it hard to eat right...I mean, I would hold choir rehearsals several times a week, getting home at 9 or 10 at night and be wide awake and wanting to "eat the world". My remedy was to eat something quick and easy to fix (usually something like chips and cheese or cookies) and wait for my body to calm down and be ready to sleep - usually around midnight. My meal times were all messed up during the day because of my work schedule (it's kind of weird to take a lunch break only 1 hour after arriving at work!) and so it was common for me to skip meals or forget to eat dinner, making it hard not to eat whole meals at 10 at night when I got home from work.
I started a new intense exercise routine over the summer (when choir is not in session and my work hours were more reasonable), but ended up injuring my shoulder in the process. I had to focus on rehab and that took away the time I had been spending on total body toning, so I got really flabby again and lost my habit of working out...again.
Now that I am at the cabin and awaiting my new job to begin I have decided to do what l can exercise-wise (my shoulder is still not healed completely - the progress is very slow). I need to figure out how to prepare meals for two that are both healthy and satisfying. I need to get used to the idea of putting my health and fitness as a priority instead of something I do after everyone else is taken care of...
I am bombarded with all the commercials for weight loss that are on the tv at this time of the year. It's so tempting to drop a bunch of money on something that sounds like a quick fix that will give great results, but I know that really what I have to do is learn how to fix unprocessed foods in a variety of ways and get my butt moving! I found this website while researching another weight loss system. I decided it was time to get on a better path of living and simply get going. Since this site is free to use I decided to give it a try...what do I have to loose accept extra weight and some really bad habits? I go...reboot time!
