I can't remember the last time I exercised. It's been that long. Eating off plan and then on plan has been a constant for over a year. For the past 6 weeks...it has been all off plan. I quit cooking when my relationship ended 12 weeks ago. At first I had no appetite and forced myself to eat a little each day, but then, well...it's been a daily junk fest.
Most days I have no energy...ya think? I had an active weekend planned but those plans changed so Saturday I ended up sleeping almost the entire day...what time I wasn't sitting on my butt watching tv and on the computer...or eating ice cream. It's about 3am and I've been tossing and turning for 3 hours so here I am.
I know WHAT to do...it's just taking those first steps to do the WHAT. I know I don't have to starve myself...I know I don't have to start out as a workout warrior. I just have to START.
So, since I'm awake anyway, I'm going to do what I should have done at some point Saturday --- PLAN. A low carb plan works best for me so I'll plan a low carb menu for the upcoming week and make a shopping list. I'll make a workout plan and commit to it for the upcoming week as well. I'll put together a motivation plan. I watched several episodes of "I Used To Be Fat" Saturday...while I sat on my butt and ate my ice cream. They gave me a few ideas that I'll try to incorporate into my plans. I visited some of your pages tonight and you are inspiring and gave me a lot to think about...thank you for sharing your journey and struggles and successes.
So there...I'm off to start putting some of these things on paper. XO
