Time to buckle down and get back to a so called "normal" life if there is such a thing

Tuesday, April 05, 2016

I maintained my weight for quiet some time when Charlie was in hospital all those month weight just crept up on me. Let's face it I know it would as I was eating fast foods everyday there was no time to cook. Now reality has set in I'm not liking it that I went up to 152 lbs.

My decision was in March that April I would buckle down. April first I started recording what I was eating I allowed myself to eat the same way I was for the past 6 months or so; this way I would be able to see what I was doing. Last week I started tracking my activity.

I have been using a IFIT for some time Monday I pulled out my old pedometer My IFIT (which I knew) reads about double of the steps I actually do walk. Its on a wrist so that movement adds steps. I love the IFIT for the sleep tracking.

I will rely on my pedometer and SP trackers but still will were the IFIT for sleeping. Since the whole thing with my husband I don't sleep well I will write about in another blog post.

What I will do:

1 Walk Skooby at least 5 days a week for 15 to 30 minutes a day

2 Ride my bike for 30 minutes 4 to 5 days a week (this outside what I have been doing over a year riding bike to and from work.

3 Track every morsel I put in my mouth even if I go on a binge.

4. Weigh myself every Sunday

5 Record my measurement once a month.

6 Take time for me and start reading again.

What I won't do:

1 I will not allow what the scale says determine my self worth.

2 I will not feel sorrow for myself / feel that I have been cheated in life

3 I will not put myself down for a bad day. It's all about baby steps one day at a time.

I deserve to be HAPPY AND HEALTH for me and no one else.

    Go for it. I hate recording bad food choices, but do so anyway. I love your "won't do's".
