I don’t want to be that ?up there ? (don’t make me type it again). If I don’t make some major changes now I will be and that scares the living daylights out of me. My inactactivity is shocking, even to me and I MUST make some changes. I’ve only managed to go for a walk once this week. The rest of the week? Well lets just say me and my chair, we’re good buddies. Can anyone tell me how they find the motivation because I’m at a loss. I’m either the laziest person in the entire world or there is something else. The psych major in me thinks there must be something preventing me. I know what I need to do. I know how I need to do it and still I don’t.
In order to get myself to stick to something I’m going to keep a food journal and count my calories. I’m first going to count what I normally eat. I keep telling myself (and Wal) that we eat healthy- no fried foods, no going out to dinner and we eat our 5 fruit and veg a day (usually more). Where I must be going wrong is on portion size, I must snack/graze more than I realize, I need to drink more water and I don’t exercise enough. I’m also going to continue my aqua aerobics class 2 days a week. I’m hoping to work my way up to kickboxing. I don’t think I can do that now but hopefully by January I’ll be fit enough to attempt it.
I’m sorry for those that come here looking for the cuteness which is Squidge and have found me wallowing in self pity. This blog is about all things Squidge but if maman ain’t happy, ain’t nooooobody happy.
And because I need bullet points or else I wont have it organized in my head.
*keep food journal
*drink more water
*go for daily walks (30 minutes)
I’ve signed up for an on-line site called Spark People. I found them when I did a search for calorie counters. So far I’m happy with it- it allows you to set up a meal plan, count calories, track water intake and exercise. The best part is that it’s free and as you know I likes me some free stuff!
