Changing my Life – Slowly



Fluffy is the word I use to describe my body these days. 10 years ago I had lost some weight and felt pretty good about how I looked and felt. Since that time I have gone to seminary, gotten married and have been dealing with parent care for the last three years. In that time I have gained 50 pounds! I just did that math and WOW 50 pounds…

Now the question is why would I ever want to advertise this total lack of self control? The reason is that I need to be held accountable to someone! My husband and I are awful when it comes to eating right or exercise. We love eating crap and watching TV together. We go out to eat or bring in take out food all the time. We go to the movies and eat lots of junk. If we try to do better one of us will have a bad day and bring the other one down with them…

Since I have been out of work I have been the epitome of laziness. I now get winded walking up our driveway to get the mail. I’m 43 years old, I should not be this way and I have to do something now before I am no longer able to do anything about it.

Now what am I going to do about it? I know I need to start slow, I am way to far gone to get all gung ho about this. I would manage to put myself in the hospital for sure… I am going to start walking! I am going to promise myself and anyone who reads this blog that I will walk a mile 4 times this week. I can accomplish this in a few different ways. I can get on my treadmill, I can take the dogs for a walk or I can do one of my Leslie Leslie Sansone walk workout videos. That’s what I will do this week. I will also try to make better food choices this week as well.

I will let you know how this works out for me!
