New month, new start

Wednesday, April 01, 2015

My rant for today is that I have been a failure to myself for way too long. There are no acceptable excuses. I have no one to blame except for myself.

After many previous failed attempts, I am going to try to bring my husband on board with me. Hopefully, we can do this together and be successful. He doesn't need to lose as much weight as I do but he is unhealthier than I am. The only medication I take is for my thyroid. He has high blood pressure, triglycerides, cholesterol, gout and arthritis. l know that if he will eat healthier, it will help with all of his ailments. The problem is that he is atypical man that does not like change. Meat and potatoes are a balanced meal for him.

My plan is to cook healthier, make him take his lunch to work instead of eating out, and get more exercise.

    i started cooking healthier by not frying anything, cooking with broth or water, baking, steaming, removing fats from meats, skin from chicken, cutting meat smaller, adding more veggies to the pot, etc,.and not nagging. We can't change anyone but we can show how it's done by example. All the best for a successful April. emoticon

    Good luck! It's hard to make others change ... my hubby is the same way... but hopefully u can set yourself as a good example to him! If not, at least you are doing it for yourself! emoticon

    Its been my experience in life that you can't change another person you can only change your self. Good luck
