Apparently, I’ve gained weight.
I have gained weight. I mean, fine. That’s been happening my whole life. I’ll always be a bit more to love BUT I don’t want this to get out of hand. Health is important. Love your curves but not to your death. I’ve got to begin making healthier choices. That is what this is about and not a quest to be skinny. I’m beautiful. I get it.
How do I know I’ve gained weight. Some of the dresses don’t fit and that is just an abomination and makes my stomach hurt. Seriously?! I love them all.
So, I need to make some promises to myself. In February, I went the entire month without drinking Coke. That hasn’t lasted and now I’m back to my late night $1.00 McDonald’s Coca-Colas. I mean, they have to be putting illegal drugs into that machine. If it isn’t Coke, it’s sweet tea. The nectar of the South.
Promise 1: No more soda this month. Okay, one last one tonight at dinner then no more. Water! Water! Water!
Promise 2: No more chicken biscuits for breakfast. Hey! Don’t judge me. They are magical. Chic-Fil-A or McDonalds…hmm!
Promise 3: Limit my white bread intake. I LOVE bread and I really love biscuits. Wheat/multi-grain or none at all for as many dining occasions as possible.
Promise 4: More fruit. Less candy. My office is full of candy. The students are gone so now I have to eat it :).
Promise 5: Keep working out at least 3 days a week. Barre3 has been great and perhaps I should hit up more cardio options. It is too hot to always be outside. The gym just isn’t calling my name right now but I need a cardio machine. One of my strange goals is to run the Girls on the Run Nashville 5K next year. Hmm…
Promise 6: Don’t stop working out during your travels.
Alright. Exhale. I can do this. Nothing extreme. Just better choices. I’m a visual person so this is now hanging in my office.
Pray for me.
