I have a few goals to try to accomplish and really, really need you all to keep me going. Over Christmas/New Year I let my hair down quite a bit. Sometimes I think I just have to smell food to put on weight.
Smell food! Up go the scales.
1. So my first goal is to tell my Bear NO MORE PLEASE! I know you love me, yet this is not the way to show me. One of the problems, in my eyes, Bear loves me no matter how I look, whether fat, skinny or in between. If I say to him I'm fat and need to lose weight, his reply is no your not with a swat or two. Yet for those who have seen him on face book he thinks he is chubby, go figure. Pffft! Once I've accomplished this I can wean myself off treats again and stick to what I know is better for my body.
Australian healthy eating chart.
I've been contemplating buying a fitbit or garmin, so if anyone can tell me about your experience if you own one please? It would need to be water proof so I can wear it in the pool for mermaids.
2. At present I have a three month gold membership at the YMCA, yet only go to mermaids twice a week. Thinking of increasing this to take some gentle exercise classes and maybe another day of aqua aerobics. See how my back holds out though, so its one day at a time.
I plan on taking small steps until after my procedure in a few weeks, once I have the results its full steam ahead if the outcome is good. So to sum it all up, I'm eating healthier and increasing my exercise a bit. Hopefully I will lose around 10 kilos over the eight months, more would be nice, we'll see what happens.
3. They say a healthy mind is a healthy body, so along with the things above, I'm (we) are decluttering our house. My goodness we still have things packed in boxes from when we made the big move. How ridiculous, obviously we don't need these things. So we are either sending them to the op shop or the tip if no good for anyone.
Breath in calm your body.......Breath out smile and relax.
Good luck to everyone else whose participating, its going to be so much fun encouraging each other.
Have a good weekend everyone.
