I have gained 10 lbs in the last 6 months and I have GOT to get them off. I am going to New York next week for a real estate conference and “I have NOTHING to wear!!!” 10 lbs and I feel like a sausage in my clothes. :(.
Why is diet and exercise sooooo difficult? I love tasty food, that’s why… Oh, and it’s cold outside so I don’t want to walk, that’s my other excuse. I don’t and won’t do diets and fads. That just sets you up for a roller coaster ride on the weight scale and if that’s not depressing, don’t know what is…
I know what I should be eating, I know what I should be doing exercise wise but, I don’t. Then I am angry with myself and feel yucky. The sad thing is I feel really good when I am exercise and eating right. Why do I do this to myself?
Because I haven’t made it a habit. It takes a month or two to make something a habit. Most people give up after a couple of weeks (like me) because it’s too much work or it’s too difficult. What it boils down to is that it is change and we are all “creatures of habit”.
Habits, good or bad that we’ve already created over the years. So we have to put a plan together to change just one thing and then add to it. If you try to change too much at one time. You are setting yourself up to not follow through. That being said, I am going for my walk. 🙂
Man that was cold!… But, I did it, I’m still alive and I’ve started a habit!
By the way, if you are in Colorado, the Fireman’s park in Arvada is a cute place to take the kids/grandkids. My nephews love it 🙂
