It seems like just the other day that it was the first of the new year and here it is April already!
At the beginning of the year I got SO serious about how to get this last twenty pounds off. That was three months ago already and I am still sort of running in place! Giving up sugar and most carbs is just sort of part of me now. Health wise I know that is the best thing for me or anyone really. Weight wise I came to a plateau that I just can't get past. I've tried giving up dairy, wheat, wine, beer, and one week kept my calories to under 1100 everyday and still can't get past this plateau. It is pretty frustrating and honestly I think I've obsessed about it enough. Sometimes when you obsess about something too much I think you just get more stuck! For the month of April I've decided to just eat healthy with the "normal" keeping of carbs and sugars to our standard LOW and I'm going to try to get in some exercise. Maybe I just need to tighten everything up, you know?
My dad came down a couple weekends ago and brought me my mom's old exercise bike. It's sitting here now waiting for me to start using it! We have a vacation coming up in June. My second son is graduating from college and my youngest son is graduating from High School and we are taking the auto train to Florida, going on a four day cruise and then hitting Disney for a day and Harry Potter World for a day before before heading home. I'd sure like to tighten everything up before that trip, and have decided that will be my new goal! The no obsessing part will be hard for me, since sometimes I can't help myself, but I'm going to try it for April and see how I do. Eat healthy, exercise, move more in general and get to the million house and garden projects I have set up for myself over the winter and see how the month goes.
I noticed the blogs have gotten kind of quiet, maybe we are all getting a little frustrated? I do hope all of you are doing well and continue to blog about your successes, failures and frustrations and hopes on this never ending journey we are all on!
