I wrote previously that I am ok with being a tortoise and not a hare in my quest for health and weight loss. I’ve realized though that I am probably one of the slowest tortoises ever. With a horrible sense of direction.
I unsubscribed from Weight Watchers to save a few bucks and to try a “lose weight extra fast” diet that I failed miserably on. I was hungry and downright cranky. I hated feeling like that so I had to accept, yet again, that the quick fix weight loss is really not for me.
So my wonderful friend who helps to keep me honest on this incredibly long and frustrating weight loss journey planted another seed for me. This one is free and similar to Weight Watchers as you basically have an allotment of calories and keep track of what you eat.
Anyone else seeing a theme here? If you actually pay attention to what you are eating, you will get healthier and lose weight. Again, who knew, right?
So I’ve signed up for My Fitness Pal for this chapter. I’m acctodenise if you would like to add me as a friend.
I am hopeful. I’ve done this sort of thing before. Just keep at it and it works.
I am doing my best to eat better food. I did a whole foods detox and I found that I actually can eat unprocessed foods without giving up food that tastes good. And I have been eating green smoothies off and on. All steps in the right direction.
And exercise. My nemesis. I have struggled with the fact that I have motivation but fail to translate that into action.
I want to.
I need to. I know that.
But I JUST.CAN’T.MOVE.MY.BUTT.
I’ve done better this week. I have jogged a few times over the last few weeks.
One foot in front of the other, tortoise.
How do you keep healthy?
