I also need to MOVE more. Still the thought of exercising is NOT my idea of a good time. Even committing to just 30 minutes a day is more than I want to do. Therefore, I have told myself that I need to find something that I WILL be able to commit to and just do it this week and see what happens.
Ken and I had a talk this morning and I told him for the next month we will not be having any pasta in this house. No noodles, no Mac and cheese, no goulash. NONE. And you know what he said to that? “No problem!” He wanted to know what else bothers me that we have in the house! Do I have a great guy or what? I am going to have to get more creative with our meals because I grew up in a family of 9 (7 kids and 2 parents) and my mom would use less protein by using noodles, macaroni, etc. to make that protein stretch! We had casseroles, and big batches of goulash, fried potatoes, all kinds of foods that are based around pasta and potatoes instead of protein just because it was cheaper. I have to change the way I cook for Ken!
As for moving more, I am going to commit to doing 10 minutes of something 3 times a day! Even if that means just getting up and walking. I know I can do that, and for February I am going to commit to that and see if I can knock 10 pounds off for the month. I am back up to 240 and I have spent way too much time in the 230’s. I want to move on into the 220’s. I know I can do this! I just have to get out of my own way!
I know you sweet girls are cheering me on! And I hope you know I am in your corner too! WE can do this!
Onward I march!!
