Making a leap...

Friday, June 14, 2013

So, I am making a huge leap and posting my first blog! I have been really hesitant to do this because what do I have to say that is informative, productive or interesting?

Well, I am currently in a rut. I am having problems eating healthy. I have been on a huge sugar kick lately! I am a self professed chocoholic and general sugar addict.

On top of that my exercising has hit the rocks as well. I had a DVD that I loved doing, but I have managed to scratch the crap out of it! I also loved walking outside, but there have been bear sightings (Two cubs) in our neighborhood. BEARS scare the crap outta me! Especially Momma BEARS! emoticon On the plus side, I will be doing a lot of yard work around our house and my Grandma's this weekend so that is a step in the right direction! emoticon

I guess I am going to have to try and get it together. It is so easy to let your mind use excuses to get out of things! NO MORE I SAY!

Also, if anyone has any suggestions or advice please hit me with it! Hope everyone has a great day and weekend! emoticon emoticon

    emoticon on your fist blog. The best way to get out of a rut is to do something completely different, the opposite to what you are doing now. Try different DVDs, walk with a friend. Find a zoo or animal place that can help you to not be so fearful of bears. I realise you do need to be careful, but maybe learning about them will ease a bit of the fear.

    Chocolate now there is another story. For me I started eating the 70% or above chocolate. Because they are a little on the bitter side you don't eat as much. Now I don't eat any other kind. Also the higher the % the better it is for you in moderation.

    Well, if you take your favorite DVD to a movie rental store, usually they can restore it! As for me, I love Zumba on the Wii! I used to hate working out too until I found it! I love to dance so it doesn't feel like working out. Try different DVDs to see what intrigues you. If you like it, you will do it! If you like the pool, swimming burns a lot of calories! If you don't want to walk near your home, maybe there is a track you could walk at. As for the sugar, I struggled with it for so long! I made myself give up sweets for 2 weeks. If I wanted something sweet, I had to eat fruit...so I would have a banana with peanut butter or Nutella or a chocolate banana smoothie (1 banana, 1 cup skim milk, 2 T sugar free choc syrup). Oh, it was wonderful! After 2 weeks, I still craved sweet, but I craved fruit instead of chocolate cake! Hey, good luck and I know it is hard, but we are your cheerleaders! You CAN do it!
