I’m working on painting my house, getting the outside ready, getting rid of stuff for a garage sale (check out the link), I lead a busy life. In that busy life, sometimes it makes it difficult to make wise choices in eating. It is because it always takes planning.
A bunch of guys at work do a ‘fat club’ they put in $100 and in 12 weeks they need to lose 10 pounds. If the 10 pounds is achieved, they get their $100 back, and if they don’t, their $100 is divided among the ‘winners’. I’m the first woman to do it. I need motivation. And so I’m doing it. I will get my $100 back. I weighed in this morning, and now this is it. 10 pounds in 12 weeks is totally doable, and safe. And since I think that crazy diets are dumb, and that making good choices and things that you can do for the rest of your life is the way to do… I will do this! I’m still down from before, and I have a crazy friend who will run with me or workout with me. So if you are with me, and I make a bad choice, I give you permission to say ‘are you sure?’ if I am going to eat something that might not be the best choice, but let’s be clear, I don’t give you permission to give me the ‘mom look’ or hound me about it. I am a grown up, I know my goals, but I also know that for the rest of my life, I will eat Chicken paprikash, I will have stuff that’s not always the best choice, but I know that everything in balance. It means turkey instead of ground beef, less sugar, less fat (but not fake), real food, and making vegetables a priority. And most importantly, keeping my focus on God.
And let's face it... running a marathon thinner will be better! (less dead weight)
Other than that, the tent is ordered (deposit in the mail), 4 days til New York, and painting is going well, cleaned out some in the backyard yesterday.
This is me… thankful!
