Wake up Call,

Tuesday, July 05, 2016

I have got to be honest. I haven't been taking my health seriously.
Don't know how I got to be so reckless with my health.
I'll tell you I tell no one, I do suffer from depression. And I love to eat.
I get when I am happy, sad, frustrated, and even to celebrate.
Love making up excuses and blame others just to eat.
However, that isn't working anymore. I am 33 and weigh 204 pounds.
Talk about depressing, (31 days until my wedding).
I didn't think about wearing a 2X dress on my wedding day.
But here we are! Not to mention Diabetes and Cancer runs in my family.
Time to get serious like NOW! Started back to exercising.
And will be logging my food the rest of the week. Rome wasn't built in one day.
But I am planning on getting healthy for my and my family.
So how about you joining me? We can reach our goals together.
(And to be honest I really need the support and an exercise buddy).
Hope you all are well. Have a great and Healthy Tuesday!!!!!

    I'm not much of an exercise buddy being 61 and disabled but I'll be here cheering you on and telling you that now's the perfect time for you to get a handle on it. I probably wouldn't be where I am today emoticon if I'd eaten right and exercised from your age on.

    I am happy for you - the wedding is near. Just start today to exercise, drink water and track your food. I am sure that the pounds will start dropping off.

    You KNOW I'm here to support you! I have 60 lbs to lose (see my latest blog) I stress eat and have been under a LOT of it lately...but that is no excuse to ignore our health. In fact the weight just makes the stress worse.

    I'm pledging to do 60 minutes a day on the treadmill...I'll break it up in smaller intervals...but 60 minutes a day is what I need to burn enough calories to make it count.

    For my food I'm just going to try and eat healthy and stay away from bad carbs...we CAN do this...I know you CAN too...join me and I'll be cheering you on every step of the way.

    By the way...I think you drop a dress size about every 10 pounds...I bet you can do that if you focus...just remember how much happier you will be when you accomplish this healthy thing! emoticon

    Hello Holly,

    Sorry you fell off the "Healthy Life-style" wagon ....

    But you can hop right back on... you know what you need to do...
    just like I do. I haven't been as good as I should have been...

    I have once again begun logging every lick. bite, and sip
    while trying to pay attention to when and why I am bending my elbow and putting calories in my mouth.
    It is helping.. a whole lot..
    I am also only counting "intentional" exercise.. which I identify this way.
    If the primary reason (I am doing whatever it is I am doing) is to burn calories... then it is intentional exercise otherwise it is just an act of everyday living.
    Parking far away from my destination thus requiring me to walk a greater distance is not intentional exercise. --BUT-- Going for a walk to burn some calories and maybe put some distance between myself and some elbow bending... that is intentional exercise. My goal is at least 30 minutes of intentional exercise daily... even if I have to break it up into three (3) ten-minute (10) events.

    Have you checked out this team???

    There are a lot of great teams out there... Finding "the one" that fits you best is sometimes rather difficult. But keep posting your blogs... I will be cheering you on..
    Hugs, Audra
