reality check and honesty..june 17th

Sunday, June 17, 2012

Time for some self examination and a reality check. It is only 2 weeks till my birthday and a year ago i hit my lifetime weight watchers goal of 137. that only lasted a few weeks. I feel good and my clothes fit at 140 but i have not been eating clean enough or exercising enough to even maintain that! Weight has crept up to 146.

OK.......so I got the Wheat Belly Book and am finally getting around to reading it more in depth. not just skimming around to see what i think i should do, LOL So basically if i were truly eating CLEAN and gave up wheat i would lose this belly fat, so why did i think it was ok to give up bread and pasta but now eat chips (even baked!) or ice cream (even no sugar added/fat free).

Working 10-12 hour days 4 days a week doesn't leave me much time or energy to exercise like i truly desire. And "they" whoever they are, say that what you eat is 80-90% and exercise is only 10%, so i am going to put that to the test. I do get some cardio in and do stretches/yoga moves several times a week. but to do serious strength training i need more time and energy.

So i am recommitting to myself to eating better and drinking more water, and doing what i can to get back to being healthier and STRONGER~

Also i have made an appt with an orthopedic to discuss getting a synvisc shot to help with my knee/ joint pain.

Phil. 4:13 I can do all things thru Christ who strengthens me!

    Good luck as you refocus. It does not sound like you are too far off track but I know it is a slippery slope. I am sure you will feel better if you take the time to exercise--I know it is true for me (but difficult at times). Have a great week!
