It's been over a month since my last post and well, I have no excuses. Well, any good ones anyway. I think part of it was posting every day (or close to it) for my Thankful posts. Man, that was harder than I thought. I have a lot to be thankful for but that was quite a task. And to be honest, I have been really busy - so much to pin... so little time.
Which brings me to the subject at hand... PINTEREST. MH calls it my porn.... others have called it Fantasy Football for Girls. I call it... my latest obsession. I am finding the best stuff. Recipes, fashion ideas, quotes, hairstyles, things to make my OCD worse. I think my Organizational board is on overload. I can't get enough of it. In fact, neither can the Littlest Diva. She was sick last weekend and completely bored and when I asked her what she wanted to do her reply was "Let's pin stuff". I love her. So that's why I haven't been on here. Yes. Pinterest is my excuse. Shame on me. And shame on you if you don't know what I'm talking about.
In other news...
I wasn't going to admit this... but hey, blogs are all about honesty... saying what you really feel no matter how many people will judge you... (blah blah blah)
I started Weight Watchers. I did this a few years ago and was very successful. I was doing so well working out all the time but then I got sick, my Divas were out of school and yes, excuses excuses. But I wasn't losing anything. And then once I took an honest look of how I was eating, well - let's just say I wasn't surprised I wasn't losing as quickly as I would have liked. It amazed me after going through the things that I ate how many calories I was really taking in.
We don't go out to eat a lot. And when we do, I try to make really good choices. Or choices that I thought were good. Like salads, sandwiches, soups. Now some of you might be laughing hysterically right now. Go ahead. I deserve it. But it could have been worse. I could be eating burgers soaked in lard on a daily basis. After I did some research I found that the place I frequented (and yes, that is a word) I was inhaling 2500 calories - for lunch. 2500!! And all I was eating was a salad and a bowl of soup. Shame on me! So I figured it was time for a game change. And here we go.
I will say this... I feel like I have a lot more tools than I did before. I am not expecting to lose my last 25 (yes, I am admitting that) okay, 30... quickly. Okay, I might even go for 35. But I'm doing this. I am sick of being tired, of not having energy, of feeling like I am wasting my life away because my weight is holding me back. I'm back on track... and it feels really good.
At least for now... maybe I should re-visit that after Pilates class tomorrow.
