What could I possibly add to an already full schedule that will have me looking for more time in the day? As if I need the added stress, right?! Well, it is that time of year, and I do need to get off my duff and lose some weight. Yes, you heard right, a diet and exercise daily routine.
Now, there are some issues, no, I didn't say excuses, issues that I have to deal with when it comes to losing weight. One, is I am older and it's tougher to take it off, and two, I do have a few physical problems that tend to slow me down but no matter, I am going to lose this 40 lbs one way or another.
Next, eat more fruits and veggies, and less sugar. Of course, add the bonus of drinking 3 liters of water a day. On top of that, I write down what I eat and keep track of the amount of fiber and fat in my diet. Now, you would think that would do it, but last year I tried just that and nothing happened. I became very frustrated and gave up.
What I need from all of you is a lot of encouragement. I am looking for all the support I can get, and don't forget the hints. If you think of something that will help me or know of a way for me to get it off, feel free to tell me in the comment section.
One thing I do need to add, I am not a gym person, not anymore. My shoulders are not flexible from years of fibromyalgia and I hate waiting for a machine to do my workout. Plus, there is nothing worse than to feel fat and go into a gym with all the body builders and cute,sexy people. I really don't have the flexibility I once had when I was young and a gymnast, and it adds to my frustration, so for now, the gym is out. But, if you know of other things I can do, drop me a comment and let me in on your secret. I am also taking a fiber supplement in case that is one of your hints.
If there are some of you that are facing the inevitable diet too, we can support each other, let me know. I would love to have someone I can talk to about this and is willing to work together. Living in Golden does help with all the hills and paths around, plus going up to the mountains to hike, so if you are interested in doing that with me, and live near by, we can do that together too. I hope that some of you at least, take a little time from your busy week and drop me a comment. I would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions!
Let's get healthy together! Love, Lisa
