Lately I’ve been very very tired. I try to get as much rest at possible but that not helping. When I’m tired, I get depress and when I get depress I eat. Yeah, I’m an emotional eater. I eat with every emotion – happiness, sadness, bloating, and everything in between. I’ve even notice that some of my clothes are not fitting anymore.
Not good. Not good at all.
This has got to stop. I’m going back on my diet again. I’m not doing it for anyone but me. I don’t want to have to suck in my stomach just to take a decent picture. LOL
Every 30 days I am going to set goals for myself. I’m not going to worry about the numbers but how I look and feel. I don’t care if I sound like a broken record (heard this all before for me) but I’m not young anymore and can’t keep doing this. Hopefully, it will have a chain reaction with those around me. With my southern roots, this is going to be hard because the cooks in my family knows how to throw down. Just pray for me that I will stick to my guns, get and stay on a healthy lifestyle path.
My Goals for the next 30 Days (Starting the week of 8/18)
- Limiting the amount of soda I drink. I love Pepsi but need to cut back. I’m limiting myself to 1 bottle or 2 cans of soda per week. Once I have one 20oz bottle, that’s it or if I have one 12oz can, I can only have another can, and then that’s it. To keep on track, if I eat fast food, I cannot get a soda as the drink, it will have to be juice or water.
- I will walk with my water bottle every day, which I figured out that holds a little more than 2.5 cups of water. I will be drinking one these bottles everyday.
- Take my vitamins everyday. I pick up a new bottle on Sunday.
- Eat salad for a meal twice a week. Notice I eliminated the words “at least” because I want to make sure I eat a healthy option.
You would notice that I don’t have exercise on my lists of goals. I’m active about 25% of my day. I am not worry about exercising because I know I can do that. Its the bad eating habits that I can’t kick. I would reach for soda before I reach for water. I would get a burger and fries before I get a salad. One a cold day or very hot day, it doesn’t matter, so I’m working on my huge hurdles first.
I will be keeping track of everything on a spreadsheet. I know, how un-techie of me but I don’t care. Fitness is my number one concern. You can following my journey through – Operation #FITCEOs here on the blog.
Wish me luck.
