Sheesh! Isn't that the truth? I started Weight Watchers with my co-workers , Laurie and Roberta, this week and have been trying to follow the plan. Trying? Uh, does that include not keeping track at a Chinese buffet or having pizza for dinner? Trying over - DOING now in force.
I woke up this morning and realized that I don't like how I feel and I have every reason to do better for myself. So I tracked the crap I ate yesterday, and started fresh today. Do you know that even though I was completely honest, I still haven't gone over my points for the week? The epiphany there is that oftentimes things like that can get me off track thinking if I blew it one day then I just can't do it. That's wrong and my tracking proved it.
So here is to today and the start of the rest of my week. Weigh ins will be on Thursdays so I have a few days to make some progress. Here's to me and everyone else headed down the bumpy trail! xoxo
So in January I started this journey. I was full of hope and vigor, even hit the "sweet spot" where I was liking my exercise and journaling my food faithfully. Then I got a job.
Now don't get me wrong, getting a job is awesome! I love having money, now what I lack is time. Excuses excuses, I know. I went from optimistic Mr. Hyde to can't get back on the wagon Dr. Jekyl. The thing is, my success earlier in the year was a taste of what I can have if I just gut it out a little bit. I am going to make me a priority, it's the only way this can work. As a mom, I'm sure people can relate that it's not an easy task to undertake.
So here is what I'm doing to get back on track. 1. Just do it! No waiting til some other day or any other excuse. 2. Plan for tomorrow. As soon as I'm done with this I'm going to pack my food for tomorrow so I don't have to worry about what to eat. 3. Take my vitamins. 4. Walk 4x a week. That's it! Once I have those keys in place I'll add more but that's manageable.
My name is Kat and I'm a single mom of two young adults. I have not always been overweight but after having children and going through some personal hurdles, let it get out of control. My philosophy about eating is this: Eat real food. Real eggs, butter, veggies. Eliminating processed junk as much as possible. I eat butter, not faux butter product because I believe my body can better process real food rather than chemicals.
