Monday Nov 15 No Excuses

I am tired of feeling blah and run down again. And I know why I feel the way I do. BAD EATING and LACK OF EXERCISE. I can make excuses all day for all of it and none of them are good, so I won't bore you with all that.

I weighed in today and I am at 161 that means I am heading the wrong way on the scale. I could blame it on the fact that I started my period but lets be honest and know that isn't the only problem.

So what am I going to do about it. Well I started yesterday by throwing out a bunch of stuff that managed to sneak into my house. CAKE for my daughters birthday, biscuits, muffins and some other items that don't need to be here. I am also restocking my pantry. I got lazy w/ cooking and bought some convenience food and then realized how terrible that stuff can make you feel if you haven't been eating it like you used to. WOW if that won't convince you how bad some of that stuff can be I don't know what will.

I have been having a lot of bloating and upset stomach lately and I know it is all diet related. So back to fresh food and low processed items. I will be feeling better in no time. Today I am kicking it off w/ a meatless Monday dinner. Putting beans in the crockpot and we are having burritos (bean cheese and brown rice) for dinner.

I will get moving in the right direction again. I did it before and I can do it now.

So glad you are on top of yourself for the diet. I need to work harder at it. Good Luck making the changes this week.

I would run to your house with avocados and salsa if I were your neighbor (I am a bean/rice fanatic). I am sorry you are gaining but glad you recognize you can do things quickly to feel better. Have a great week Julie.

Love the burrito dinner!! Your body is getting so used to being given whole foods that the other stuff is making you feel bleh.

Best of luck getting back on that horse. I know how hard it is. But I also know you can do it.
