It’s been a busy month. That’s no excuse for a blogger, I know! While I still think of Paris all the time, and I know I am not done with Paris quite yet, it has to take a place in the rear view mirror while I move forward with some life choices in both my work and personal lives. I am very comfortable at work, but I am thinking of making a career change. I wish I could devote all my time to blogging and I could write all the time, but alas, it’s not in my financial future. What I can take action steps in is recreating my resume and educating myself in new ventures. Enough of the boring work talk….let’s talk self-care.
I have been very skinny my whole life. That is, until the last few years. In the last 5-7 years, to be exact, Then the pounds came on. I used to eat with absolute impunity. Now, I gain weight eyeing the cinnamon roll! What happened?? All I know is that my body is changing and I need to take control. I was successful in 2016 and lost 30 pounds. Yeah me! Except, I got lazy and lost my groove. And this time, I gained back all of it and more; that’s right! I gained 40 pounds back. Now a friend has turned me on to on new lifestyle program that includes weight loss and my goal is 40 pounds. When I reach that, I will do what I need to so I can keep the weight off and continue to make healthy choices.
This all sounds fantastic in a great ideal world, but its going to be a challenge for me. I love steak and potatoes and BREAD. Yes, lots of bread. I can still have a lean steak with broccoli or asparagus and a nice salad. With dressing even….but it has to be approved by the program. I am really going to miss my carbs in the form of buns, pizza, cookies, doughnuts.. You name it, I will miss it.
But what if I could rearrange my paradigm of health and didn’t have to miss those things? I think that’s what I am going to discover with this plan. I am only on day #3. Three days in, lots can look good! Let’s see what happens.
PS: Next time, we will talk about exercise and diet!
