Bigger than I want to be!
Wednesday, April 22, 2020
I'm having a difficult time right now. My weight is slowly creeping up and I don't feel like I am doing anything different. I try my best not to over eat and make good choices. By no means am I perfect (who is?!) but I really do try.
I have been walking most days at lunch; 20-30 minutes. Also, doing other exercises from a health challenge that I am participating in at work.
I did no dessert, candy, ice cream or sweets for Lent. My birthday was this past Saturday and my kids made brownies and chocolate ooey gooey butter cake. We also BBQ'd steaks, made oven-roasted potatoes, baked macaroni and cheese, green beans and rolls. I didn't eat but a bite of each dessert quite awhile after our meal because I was so full. Monday, I found myself nibbling a treat as I walked by. I had to freeze the leftovers because it was just too sweet and made my stomach hurt. I'm working form home now and really trying not to over-indulge as so many have said they are doing while being stuck at home.
Maybe it's my age, my genes or just the way life is; I'm not quitting...just venting! Good luck to everyone out there struggling like me. We will get through this!
