I took pictures of most of what I made but I left my phone downstairs, and my legs hurt so I’m taking a break in my room. I’ll post them later.
I’m acutely aware of the irony (sagleo is that the right word?) (sagleo is my amazing sister who is a court reporter…so she took tons of grammar classes!!!) that in order to eat healthy and be prepared all week with healthy choices so that I get some weight off and my legs stop hurting….I stand in the kitchen all day Sundays cooking which causes the pain I’m trying to eliminate by eating healthy which necessitates standing in the kitchen all day on Sunday…and round and round we go!
After years of “eating my feelings”, buffets and general couch potato shenanigans, my knees became severely arthritic. I just had one knee surgery and will be having the other knee replaced soon. This has been my “whoa there” moment. At 50 I am making a commitment to get healthy. After years of neglect, I may never have the body that looks the way I want it to, but I hope to gain the body that feels and works the way I want it to!
I’m using the Weight Watchers food plan to get some weight off and once I’m able to be active I’ll be incorporating activity into my life. I want to hike, bike, swim and walk walk walk one day. I know I need to take baby steps (pun intended) so let the those steps begin!
I am also a recovering addict and I see in myself the same addictive behavior around food that I have around drugs and alcohol. It’s all about self medication, whether its food or substances. You know that saying that knowledge is power? I’m working on putting it all together to build a healthier me so that the last half of my life is more enjoyable than the first half.
I hope you’ll enjoy my posts, leave some comments and help me stay accountable. Maybe this will help you too in whatever you are working on in your life! Namaste.
