Okay, I keep telling myself I need to get back in shape and it's just not happening. We've started another biggest loser contest at work, my class reunion is coming up this summer, and I'm going to NY in June, and I'd really like to drop some extra weight I've packed on since my divorce.
I think I've pinpointed some things I need to do to help myself out. I mean, I eat pretty well, Greek yogurt for breakfast, salads for lunch, I don't eat fried foods, I stay away from red meat most the time, I don't eat fast food. I eat good carbs, good fats. I've been exercising. I've started a 5k training class and have stuck with my exercise schedule, so here are the things I think I'll have to sacrifice to make this happen.
Starbucks. Okay, I will probably not give this up entirely, but I think I'll make it a treat once a week. I'll just have to decide which day.
Eating out. I've been doing this way too much, especially since I starting the online dating stuff. I have been eating salads mostly when I've been going out, but I know even those aren't that great for you. So, no more. Plus, I need to save money too, this will help my waistline and my bank account.
*cough* wine *cough* So I like some wine sometimes. sigh. whatever.
Admittedly, none of this will happen until Thursday though, as tomorrow is my birthday and I will be celebrating. :)
That's all the stuff I can think of. Do you have any ideas?
I am the mother of two crazy beautiful girls, living in the
rainy, but lovely Pacific Northwest. I have an unhealthy obsession with sock monkeys, loves pizza, soccer, the color black, kickboxing and the sun. I am the author of YA titles Never Eighteen and Dissected.
I like to write things that make people think and feel—things
that resonate with them for days. Part of my goal is to live life profoundly,
with enough passion and adventure, maybe a little chaos, so that I may become a great writer. I aspire
to never stop learning and growing and to continue trying to perfect my craft.
One of my favorite functions as a published writer is to
inspire others as well. I love visiting schools and libraries and motivating aspiring
writers to finish their stories and never give up their dreams.
