Once Vi and Ross headed out, I had to get Rob a lunch together as he was heading on into work earlier then usual today.
I am NOT happy with myself lately, or more like the past three months or so of bad, bad, really BAD !
What could be so bad? This is what is so BAD .....
I have been BAD, not eating properly or being as active as I should. Now in my defense I do have Menopause, lowered metabolism and gravity all against me .... does all that count in my favour???? I sure hope so !
Three months ago I weighed 3 lbs less then I did this morning, my hips were 1 inch smaller, as was my waist, and my stomach was 2 inches less then it is. OH MAN !!! Smarten up Woman ....
Where did my "will power" go when the Grandboys were here, as I joined along in the homemade desserts, ice cream cones, consumption of Candy ..... oh and I am sure eating more then I should be. Those days of finishing "just that little bit" left on a child's plate catch up with you once you reach a certain plateau in life, does it not?
I need to "smarten" up before I end up being a Beached Whale ... it goes on so easy, but most certainly does not shed as easy. I do feel much better when I weighed less, so why does this not encourage me to have "will power"? cause sometimes life circumstances control our brains, that is why .... those three things I have already mentioned in my defense, as well as "stress eating" and "emotional eating".
Yes, these things all have had an effect on my "Muffin Top", this I am certain of ....
What am I going to do about my overflowing Muffin Top and increased inches? Well get back on the "Band Wagon" is what I am going to do ... which I started doing today (almost killing myself getting started at it, I might add, lol).
With 1 hour of walking now under my belt today, what am I planning to do here any minute now? Eat the fresh picked Beets I pulled from our garden and have cooked up in my Pressure Cooker, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
