Looking back

Wednesday, October 05, 2016

I decided to take a look back at some of the other blogs that I had posted since becoming a member of SP. I posted my first one on 2-25-15 and it was titled Excuses! After reading it this morning I realized that I am slowly but surly slipping back into the old habit of making excuses as to why I am not eating right or exercising. They are all just stupid excuses!!!

I am a grown woman living by myself and there is no reason that I can't fix the healthy foods that I should be eating and exercising as much as I can. My son is grown and lives in Richmond (about 2 hours from me) so I don't have him coming home in the evenings after soccer practice and wanting me to fix him his favorite hamburgers and homemade fries....and chocolate chip cookies. I'm not on the run going to soccer games or any of that stuff. I just choose to make unhealthy and not so wise decisions and I'm the only one that can change that! And I'm going to try and do just that. I can sit down at night and plan my meals for the next day, I can exercise anytime I want to! So I just have to make the decision to do what is right and healthy for me.

I was always so involved in my son's life and now that he is married I'm looking forward to being involved with my grandchildren one day. If I don't change my ways, I'm going to be so out of shape that I'm not gonna feel like doing anything. I don't want to feel that way. As I said in a previous blog, I want to be full of energy and life.

Life is so short, so why spend it feeling any way but great emoticon

    Try and plan ahead so that you can have healthy options available. This will help you avoid unhealthy foods. Start adding exercise to your day. Start small then add more minutes.

    Slipping into old habits is very easy. I do the same, and I am home during the week by myself. I try to track all my foods the night before so that my meals are planned out. Hope you find something that works for you.
