Thinks I can't control
Do you have things in your life that seem out of control?
I dedicated my younger years to raising my 3 girls.
I loved it every minute. When life gave you one challenge..
you took care of it. Maybe longer to find out how to, but it always worked out. Then came another one. (laughing)
Things just always worked.
At this time I could also eat whatever I wanted.
Not anymore. I have put on 34 lbs since my first child.
They say you add 1 pound for every year you are out of school.
She turned 32 this July. I noticed 7 years ago I was putting weight on in the middle. Upper tummy and tummy. I think about it every day....but do nothing about it. I'm not fat...but have body fat.
I guess this is my confession to myself and anyone that reads this blog. Which isn't much. I don't blog much or exercise much or practice my harp playing because I find myself wrapped up in taking care of others....still.
My husband is working at a job he drives 1 hr each way. At the end of the day he is so tired. At our age we had hoped to be on our plan to retire. Thanks to the economy
he has had to look for other jobs. Leaving the ones behind that he worked hard to bring us to the point of retirement. We are grateful he has a job to go to every day. But how long will this keep?
So I am getting off track....Maybe my problem.
My confession ...I hope....will make be hold myself accountable to me and you to loose some weight.
I love to read about food recipes, craft how too and now I find lots of fix it how too. Avery cool one yesterday was about keeping your pumpkins longer when carving for Halloween. Put those silicone gel packs in that come in pocketbooks and shoes. Very cool.
I'm going to try to carve out some time to exercise.
I hope to take my vitamins on a regular basis.
Stay away from my guilt...eating ice cream.
Eat better and not so late at night.
This morning I weigh 143. 8-6-12.
So on day one I hope to find the courage and strength
to keep up with my goal.
Any help or suggestions?
To all have a very blessed day.
