The COVID Chubby has to come to an end

Sunday, June 21, 2020

Time to stop making excuses and get serious with actually getting out and walking more and ditching the COVID munchies.

I have been unkind to myself during the lock down and it is time to stop and get off the merry go round of emotional eating.
I could sing the song "nobody knows the troubles I've seen" and look for sympathy but we have all be faced with troubles since this pandemic started and I hate the idea of making excuses for gaining weight. The fact is I have gained weight because I have been snacking too often and on all the wrong things.

Monday morning comes in just a few hours and it will be the day that I begin to stop the excuses and get off the merry go round. It's time for business and that business is getting back to exercise (no excuses of age, soreness and or anything) and back to healthy eating by eliminating ALL the junk food we have in our house. Hubby can find a hiding place for his "stuff" so I don't see it or desire it and for me, I don't need to have it ever.

I start back to journaling tomorrow and will not stop working on getting back to the real me.
I'm sparked!

    Susan, it's great that you're feeling sparked! All the upheaval of the past few months has taken its toll on lots of people--you're not alone. And now that things are sort of starting to get back to normal, it's a great time to try to get back to a routine. I really hope everything comes together to support your re-entry into the turbo-charged life you're famous for, my dear!

    Good for you Susan. Know that you are not alone. I put back on the pounds also, have been back on my journey with outside exercise. Been gardening and let me tell you that can be quite the work out. Our yard has never looked so good. Here in Michigan we've had decent weather now that it finally has warmed up and I'm taking advantage of it.

    I also have absolutely no excuses except I put in the mouth. Hubby is still with the sweets and sometimes it drives me nuts, but at least he's eating stuff I hate.

    Wishing you all the best and here's to back onto the journey.
