New Life for Me

Monday, June 15, 2020

I just noticed when I came in to do this blog, my last one was January 2019, over a year ago! I have been journaling in other places. I have started a new life for myself, leaving my husband behind. I now have my own apartment and my cat and we are doing well.

I am having problems with cooking for one. I plan my meals for the week and try to do things that are easy but I find myself just snacking at dinner time instead of eating a healthy meal. I try not to buy the snack food when I go to the store but can convince myself just one treat won't hurt.

Last year I lost 60 pounds and was feeling really good. I think the quarantine hit and I was in my apartment all day and night. I have only gained about 10 pounds back but it still bothers me after I had made that milestone. I was actually down to wearing clothes I didn't have to go to a plus size department! I know I can get there but it is getting started.

I have a new boyfriend who is moving in in a couple of weeks. I am hoping this will push me to be better. He is tall and thin and eats well. If I can follow his lead, I should get back to where I was. My biggest problem is getting out and moving. I still get about 2000-3000 steps per day even when I am inside all the time. With my age, I need to get more movement and strength training. I know what I need to do, I just need the motivation to do it.
