I have a confession to make. I’ve put on weight. I’m not happy about it and it’s why I haven’t really posted about my weight. I’ve had a few things in Sept which were junk food laden and I was not strong.
I’ve been slack on my exercise and have been so focused on other things I have not really thought about what I have been putting in my mouth.
I do this a fair bit. I lose weight, I feel good, then I put it back on. I lose it again and repeat the cycle. I WANT TO BREAK THIS CYCLE!
I am feeling a bit loser in some of my clothing, so I am not feeling terrible about my weight gain, but I still don’t like it.
I looked at myself in the mirror earlier and I can see the difference in my face and my body. It is changing, just not as fast as it could be.
So I had decided I am now in Camp Biggest Loser. If they can do it and most of them keep most of it off, why can’t I do it? I am currently at home so I have the time to exercise. I have just not been focussed on it.
I am also in charge of what I cook and what we all eat so now the whole family is changing what we eat. I am fortunate that my kids are happy to chomp on fruit, some veg, actually my 3 year old is loving grated carrot, I don’t know why, lol. They also love nuts, mainly cashews, not peanuts so there is no reason to have any junk snacks.
I have put up a piece of paper inside my pantry and I have to write on it everything I eat and drink plus all exercise I do, just like a food diary. Difference is instead of being private, anyone who opens my pantry can read it. (I was going to put it on the front, but I chickened out.)
I am upping my exercise again. Yesterday I got woken up at 6:20. Usually I would roll over and go back to sleep. I contemplated it. I seriously did. Problem is, if I want to lose weight I need to exercise more. So I walked and ran the 4km walk I used to do. I discovered I am 20 minutes out of shape. That is it took me 20 minutes longer than my previous regular time. I am truly disgusted at myself for this.
But it is a new day, so here we go!
