Well, it's been a month now since I started working on my goals, especially my weight-loss goal (see here.) Time to fess up, be accountable, and resolve to do better.
So how have I done, well, good and not so good. I'm happy to report that I'm back in the habit of drinking water every day and it's getting easier. Which also means I'm doing pretty good (I slipped a couple times) at limiting my pop intake to only once a week. I've found it's really hard to get all my water in when I nurse a pop all afternoon. Plus if you remember this post here, I have to drink an extra glass of water for every pop I drink. I'm actually not craving it so much either, and I really savor it and enjoy the taste so much more when I do have a pop.
I've also started exercising again and it is fun-ish. lol I haven't made it a solid habit again, but I have really tried to incorporate more strength training into every day. Just little bits here and there, but it's something. This is really going to be my focus for the next couple of weeks. I have got to make myself (not really a morning person) get up at 6 and get moving!!
It's also time to really start taking notice of what I'm eating. I'm reading a really good book,The Perfect 10 Diet, but it's taking FOREVER to get to the part of what I should and shouldn't be eating. Yah, that's been my excuse for the past 3 weeks, but no more! This book is making perfect sense and my doctor has been telling me I should be eating this way for several years now. But I'm not a lover of "self-help" books and so I don't read them really fast and this one, while giving me a wealth of knowledge in the "why" category, I haven't gotten to the "how" part yet. :) I know excuses, excuses. If anyone is interested, the Kindle version is only $1.99 (if you have an ipad or iphone, download the kindle app, it's great!)
