1st Blog - Letting Go

Thursday, December 24, 2015

So... This isn't easy. I'm a private person and also an introvert. I don't usually put myself in positions where there is a possibility for judgement and I certainly don't like attention focused on me, but I am going to try this and hope for the best. Today was a good day! I stayed within my dietary guidelines for only the second time since we arrived at my in laws house last Friday. I could not walk/jog or really even get outside today because of the rain and storms. I did go bowling with our five year old grand twins and it was a lot of fun. One of the twins and I had a BLAST dancing for about 30 minutes to Christmas music. We giggled and danced! So, I at least moved around a little and did not just sit on this dreary day. The pic is of my Christmas music dancing partner. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE HIM!!! I haven't weighed myself since last Friday. I am afraid of what I will find. I've been trying to live a healthier life for about 3 weeks now. I dropped 5 pounds in the first week of healthy eating and exercising. I lost nothing during the second week and now i really just don't want to know. Especially since I have been off track with food and exercise this week. This week has been difficult with all the Holiday food and the dreary rainy weather. It'll soon get better and I can better control my meals and I can go to the gym. I miss the gym!!! Anybody else share my struggles?

    I'd like to be able to say something encouraging, but I don't really know what to say. Your blog made me happy, though. It made me feel better about things in my life. I found it inspirational. I guess you don't have to say much if the tone is there.

    But even if I can't get to the gym I am going to watch & do a YouTube aerobics video &/or Pinterest HIIT exercise!!! No more 3 weeks off! Struggling with you but hoping to move forward! We can both do it!!!

    I haven't exercised as much the last 2 weeks & have eaten lots of sugar (+ I got injured exercising), but I've decided to pick myself back up & make healthier choices. I'll still enjoy yummy stuff in half portions, or vary the treat of the day...

    I was so good at Thanksgiving at each side of the family gatherings... & then my mom made all of my favorite Xmas cookies and my sister kept offering them to me, even after many polite refusals and citing my diet. Every other day I started to binge.
