While my life may seem charmed, no one’s is. We all have our struggles. My #health was mine in #2017. So in #2018 it is priority #1.
Long day…tired…and still not stopping. Because once more I was off to the gym. But today was as much about the things I learned about me. And what works best for ME!
First full day of diet…accomplished…CHECK.
I even managed to make a half decent goulash with PRETEND meat…i.e. Quorn. And eat it too!
As for more exercise…well, mowing and raking the backyard counts!
But do you know the hardest part of all?
Yesterday I went to the doctor for my wrist. It has been bothering me…especially with all the painting, mowing and cleaning. Sometimes it is even hard to grip things and I get tingling.
But none of that was as worrisome as stepping on the scales! What I saw was truly an awakening.
Oh, I knew that I had put on some weight since moving in with Cookie Monster. I mean I am actually cooking three meals a day plus…cookies…cakes…pancakes…and all the rest. It was as if after five years of having no one to cook for (no, I did not cook for me) I was trying to catch up.
But I had no idea it was THAT bad.
