I apologize for being such a horrible SparkFriend during this past year.
I'm still time-challenged with trying to optimize my painting website so new business can find me, researching subjects for new paintings due July 10th (yikes!), exercise training for my hike... then there's all the problems with the decluttering, the home repairs, the holes in the walls from the raccoon rescue, the stolen hub caps...
Now someone has smashed into the front of my car -- a hit and run! No one saw anything!
I'm eating healthy and working out like a mad woman... yet still gaining weight each week. Okay, it's mere ounces each week, but I continue gaining!
I just want to cry!
This week, my goals are to eliminate carbs as much as possible. I've always known I can't eat like everyone else, but I really, really want to. I eat things like grilled chicken, steamed corn, steamed green beans and whole grain rice in correct portions... and still gain weight. For most people, this IS healthy and will get that weight pouring off your body.
For me, this is too many carbs and I've got to eat even more plainly -- cut back sodium and carbs drastically to see that scale move again. I know I'll be rewarded again when I do... but it's no fun to have to live like this.
Stupid body! I should be thankful I've got my health, right!?
Okay, okay... it's all in the attitude, right?! So, this life of "adventure" is going to begin going toward positive results! The only one who can stop me is ME, and I can take her!
