I have been sticking to my regimen. Eating right and doing the various Insanity Videos I can find. I haven’t weighed myself so I don’t know of any pounds dropped but I know I’ve gotten rid of more inches. I see it in my stomach area and my face. The hardest thing this go round for me was to stop drinking the Coca Cola’s. It’s so much easier to stop something especially a bad habit, the first time rather than trying to stop yourself a second or 3rd, etc, etc time. Yet I remained determined. I watch what I eat, not just as it goes into my mouth but I’m focused on how much starch I consume. I’m eating Multi Grain bread. I’d get Multi Grain Bread for my subs but then for home I’d buy White bread or White well now I still buy White Bread for my children but I only get Multi Grain Bread for myself. My liquids I have totally AGAIN, removed pop/soda from my diet. Last time I had pop around, was pouring it for others with no problem this time after allowing myself to drink pop again, I’d pour a SMALL glass for myself. That wasn’t bad b/c it had ice in it but then I’d refill it next thing you know, oh my gosh I’ve drank almost this whole bottle. So no pop/soda only flavored packets and water. I’m eating Roasted Peanuts and Almonds that is a part of my Grocery list. I already eat more salads and fresh fruit and vegetables. So the missing ingredient was a regular exercise regimen and staying away from drinks other than water. As I’ve said before I’m not where I’d like to be or even believe I should be given I have been at this since May 2012, but I’m not where I used to be. The key thing is I’ve Quit Using Excuses and justifying my actions, well lack thereof. I had ALWAYS heard we gain weight as we get older especially women and if you don’t get your weight under control in your younger days odds are you won’t get rid of the weight but add to it, but I’ve LEARNED that does not always have to be the case. One of the first step to breaking Generational Curses is doing away with all the myths. Don’t leave it up to the next Generation to make the necessary changes, let the change begin right now with you. Many sickness and diseases run in my parents family, We all don’t have to live with and accept various ailments b/c it’s in our families. We may be preconditioned to getting high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, Gout, asthma etc, etc, but with proper diet control and some exercise we can delay the issue for a long time. Some conditions people are born with but some issues we create by what we eat and do or don’t do. If I was to accept status quo, I would accept my body as it is, which I do don’t get it wrong I love me, I feel very sexy and confident when I dress up and step out. I just want a better me, but if I was to accept status quo I would accept the fact that by 40 years of age High Blood Pressure, Knee Problems, Back problems and others problems is just the way it is. Well I’ve rebelled against many things that just don’t make sense to me, why should this be any different. If I make the necessary changes NOW by changing my actions my current actions will encourage my children to make the necessary changes and go into prevention mode for the rest of their lives, then the curse of poor health will start to disappear and we’ll have to focus on the other curses plaguing this family, such as gossip, lies and back stabbing which I believe is the biggest issue affecting all generations right now. God didn’t build the world in one day so all issues won’t be cured in one day but they all are fixable. 2013 is my year and I’m not letting anyone get in my way, not even myself Cheers 🙂
AMEN AMEN AND AMEN AGAIN!!!! HANDLE IT MY BEAUTIFUL AUNTIE!! HANDLE YA BUSINESS AND WHEN WE SEE EACH OTHER AGAIN(hopefully soon) WE WILL BE A HEALTHIER AND STILL PLEASANT SURPRISE. YOU ARE DEFINITELY PUSHING ME FORWARD. KNOW THAT I AM RETURNING THE FAVOR!!
Awwwww Thanks love!! We’ve always been there for each other that’s something distance nor time will never be able to steal. When we do get together our 40 year old selves are going to party like it’s 1999 AGAIN. Many people partied hard the last day of 1999 thinking the world was going to end, well we’re going to party like its 1999 AGAIN to new and healthier beginnings. We won’t see 2999 but we can party inadvance for it. We’ve done it before this time we know the importance of keeping it off and not that this is a valid excuse but NO MORE BABIES, Lol.
