Another Plan, getting back in the saddle, starting over, regrouping, planning for success. There are many other cliche's and I guess over the years I have used them ans some more. This time I am not blowing a trumpet to herald a new game on. This time it is going to be quiet honesty, this time it is going to be hopeful. this time it is me being my own best friend.
I put on four pounds on holiday, they did not come off over the weekend as I had hoped. In fact since Emily was ill at the beginning of March, I have put on seventeen pounds. Half of the total taken off up until then. It hit me this morning when I got weighed and looked back at my so call progress over the year. So it is serious now. I have just under eighteen weeks to my New England holiday. In that eighteen weeks I want to lose thirty pounds. The calorie books are back out, as are my food scales and my measuring cups and spoons. The tape measure has been wielded and the numbers have been crunched.
Today I weigh 220 pounds. my aim is to get to 190 for October. So along with healthy eating there will be a huge increase in my exercise regime. Today I bought a bike, in fact I bought two, one for my man and one for me. The plan is to ride to and from work and build up to several miles a day. It's back to the gym and get the Wii Fit going again. I know that is where the problem lies, we haven't done half as much exercise since Emily's illness.
I said in yesterday's post I would answer any questions about me and my life on my Truthful Tuesday.
My truth today is I am ashamed of having let the weight slid on so easily, but I am ready to do something about it.
