Wedneday Words on Weight Loss
Today I am linking with Patrice at Everyday Ruralty
She wanted to start a day to help us with Weight Loss.
1. Are you trying to lose weight, stay the same, or just eat healthier?
I am trying to loose weight and eat healthier. I experienced some health problems
over Christmas and I think that was from eating junk.
2. Did you gain weight from Thanksgiving and/or Christmas?
Well, I think I did. I was trying to enjoy Christmas, I made a pact to stay off
the scale until January 1, 2011, I will tell you I could not get into my jeans. So I knew
it was bad.
3. What is more tempting to you sweet or salty snacks?
I think it would be sweet, and chocolate. I can handle the salty with a bag
of air popped popcorn if it gets bad.
4. What are you doing for exercise? I am just walking and not enough of that. I need to get
back to weight lifting and doing the balance ball routine that I do normally. I just haven't had
the want too very much. I want to sit around and hold something hot in my hands and
stay curled up.
5. Please tell me something you can do this week to be nice to yourself.
I am always nice to myself, that is how I got in this place. Well, lets see, I bought myself
a Cameo Needle punch. Yeah, that is it. I also bought lots of food that I eat like
Greek Yogurt and fruit and vegetables and make sure I have dip already prepared so
I have things to eat. Lots of hot herbal tea as well. My husband is doing this with me
so it is easier because I cook for him and I don't know if I would do it for myself.
Thank you so much Patrice. I am looking forward to what new questions you will have
Gosh this is hard for me to share something this personal on this blog. I would rather
you thought I was a tall and willowy blond and who ran every morning before
I cooked a wonderful breakfast for my husband. When in truth I am short, dark headed
and my husband makes his own breakfast. I have never been a good breakfast cook.
