Hello there old friends,
Let me start with the good news...I have lost about 10 lbs! I call this my french fried no exercise miracle. My eating the past few months has been awful (but tasty) and until a few days ago, I hadn't had a proper workout since June...
I have been happy and not happy at the same time! I just started a new teaching job (which I love) and am living in the greatest new town!
Why haven't I been working out you might ask...working 12 hour days doesn't really leave much gym time. I know, this is not fair to me and my body, but sometimes, I gotta put others first.
Why haven't I been eating properly? My not-so-positive influence of a husband loooves going out to eat. But, so do I!! We have had soo much fun trying out new restaurants in our new home! Some of them are fantastic...some not so great, but it has been a fun, rewarding experience.
Give me a little bit of credit, I do eat well at other meals...breakfast and lunch I try to make as healthy as I can.
So how did I lose weight? Actually, its no magic pill or trick...I just got on the scale and I am ten pounds lighter...it might be because I haven't been putting to much thought into food. Yea, I am not eating healthy, but I have become less obsessed about food and eating which, in a weird way, probably results in me eating less. It could also be the scale...I have never been on the scale at our new gym and who knows, it could be light. Either way, I am stuck using the gym scale for the next few years so I am going to trust what it says.
Anyways, its not about the number on the scale right? It's about feeling good and taking care of my body. Neither of which I have done very well. Eating crap and not exercising makes my body and mind feel weak and sickly...I don't care how much I weigh...if I feel like this than I am doing something wrong...
Hence the reason I am back in full force on Spark...I want to start working out and eating right again! Sure, there will be french fries and ice cream days (my favorites) and there will be days that I won't feel like working out, but i need to start taking care of my body in a more healthy way!
