OK, well I am getting it full force now. The sore throat started and I got very little sleep last night. I sure hope it doesn’t last long.
Not a lot happening today. Worked on a few projects. We did not walk but played with the dog outside a little. Not sure if any of you noticed my ticker, but I have officially lost 2 pounds. Only took 3 weeks! UGH! I think if I can be better about exercising I will see better results. I do not expect to see the pounds drop off quickly. I didn’t gain the weight quickly. And I prefer slow and steady so that I am more inclined to keep it off.
I think too many times people want a quick fix. Give me a pill, so I don’t have to change anything that I do. Or surgery. I am not saying that surgery is wrong. I think for some people, that is what they need. And for a lot of those people they work their butts off after the surgery to learn to live a healthier life. But unfortunately there are those who think of it a quick fix and then refuse to change the way they eat or refuse to exercise and therefore the weight comes right back on.
It is a constant struggle for most, especially as you age. I certainly thought by my 40th year I would be in better shape…well that is what I wanted at least. But I make excuses and say, so much has been going on with TTC and just life in general that I just couldn’t get there. What I should have told myself is “if it is that important to you, make it happen…make time for it!”
So with that being said, tomorrow I am going to walk. It will either be for 20 minutes on the treadmill or a walk around the block. But I am going to get off my butt and do it, because that is the only way I can drop the weight I want to and still remain healthy (and eat better too).
I am also motivated to lose the weight because when I become pregnant I am going to put about 20-25 pounds on, so if I can drop that amount pre-baby, I will feel much better about things.
DAY 26: Post a picture of something that makes you happy.
I love this photo of my hubby with Buddy our dog. My two favorite fellas. Pure joy!
