So instead of any more whining about what I'm doing wrong, I'm going to write about what I am doing right - and try to focus on that this week.
- I am going to the gym regularly. Yes, right now it is only twice a week, but as soon as pre-school is finito I can go most days. It is also a sad state of affairs that the hardest part of my work out is climbing out of the pool. In front of all the cute little kiddos (and their cute little moms) waiting for swim lessons. But the poor life-guard that helps me out told me the first time, "Just come back, okay?" And I have.
- I eat a salad most days for lunch. If I don't have one for lunch, I have salad for or with my dinner. I have even gotten to the point that I miss it if I go a couple of days without one. Sometimes I am lazy (no! really?) and don't want to go to the store to stock up on fresh fruits and veggies. But I miss those salads of mine.
- I rarely eat at night anymore. I know I've whined about this before. I thought it was why I had gained so much, but since cutting it out, I've not lost, so it's not the sole reason. But it is not healthy, so it had to go.
- I talk to my boys about eating healthy food. Eating healthily and losing weight has been a topic of conversation around here. Healthy food is emphasized, hopefully, not too much. I don't want to create further problems with food in this family.
