Day 2 of my “clean living” venture. So far so good. Though it IS Day 2. I am queen of sticking to something for about a week or two and then it’s back to my wicked ways….THIS time, however, with hubby home I have an accountability partner. So, that’s always good when one may reach for that Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream in the freezer. perhaps.
Oxygen magazine has a great “Off the Couch” publication with really good articles, very motivating. Now, I don’t aspire to be a competitive bodybuilder or fitness model, but will be thrilled to be COMFORTABLE in my jeans this winter, to have more energy and to be healthier. Here are a few things that are different “this time”:
- Hubby’s home. Statistically, with spousal moral support people do better at sticking to diet and exercise changes. Right? Common sense says yes……..let’s go with that!!
- I have a PLAN this week. Each day, in fact! There is a weight watchers saying, “If you fail to plan then plan to fail”.(also attributed to Ben Franklin, Winston Churchill, Carl W. Buechner, and Harvey MacKay–in varying versions)
- My kids are on board. H.U.G.E. Now to slowwwwwwly introduce them to more exciting vegetables, etc.
- I’ve already been pretty consistent on my workout routine for the past month, time to add good nutrition.
Some things to still incorporate: journaling what and when I eat. Purging the “junk” from the house so as not to tempt me. Incorporating the meals I am making to the entire family. Baby steps. You can only eat an elephant one bite at a time…
