So my booblet Sophie over at petticoat had me thinking about this. I have recently been thinking that my exercise is key to my weightloss...but that statement came from someone who was not exercising until recently but a few of you bloggers out there...um...Ronnie...reminded me that food is actually more key than exercise. I didn't want to admit it...but it is. I can totally undo my exercise by eating too many calories. DANG IT.
Why is food such a battle?
Why can't I love vegetables and protein?
Why must I crave Carbs and Fat and Sugar?
I peaked at the scale today...even though weigh in is tomorrow...it showed no loss...I swore....like a sailor. It put me in a bad mood as it usually does.
So I have really been trying to change not only my eating habits but my families...and boy is that tough. Hubby is tough..he is skinny...and a horrible eater. He can eat pizza three times a week, ice cream, cookies and never gain. But Johnny and I not happening. So I try to tell him that we just don't have his metabolism and I don't want Johnny to pick up his unhealthy eating habits. So I have limited him and Johnny to one treat to have in the house a week. They can have it once a day. Any other treats hubby has must remain out of house. This has been working so far on my binge candy raiding and cookie raiding I was doing in the pantry. I have also been doing fruit as a desert in the evening. I have done parfaits using low fat cool whip---THEY LOVE it! and Cold watermelon and salt--Johnny and mines favorite. And I just introduced Johnny to smoothies..he loves them..in fact he said I could skip ice cream next week he would rather have a smoothie---score! Now I totally get that its easier for me to introduce Johnny to this he is 5 and his habits have not been going on for too long...a teenager would be a lot harder. I am hoping I can change them but dinner is not always working. Every other day we eat the same thing but some nights I eat differently than I do for the rest of the family.. partly out of convenience...I get tired and lazy after work and working out and I don't plan great meals.. I resort to macaroni and cheese and hot dogs(for them not me)---cringe...bad mom.
Switching gears again.....
So we started a challenge with the BOOBs girls. And I pledged that this week I would up my running to 30minutes from 20minutes. Apparently, I should have done this sooner...or bought my shoes sooner. I ran for 30minutes and walked for 35minutes...I felt fabulous. Last week I ran two days for 20minutes and then the rest of the week I recovered from that. I am going to shoot for 30minutes of running again tonight..because I am not sore---yay and I don't feel tired---yay again!
So I am still hoping for at least 1 lb loss tomorrow but I am going to try not to throw a tantrum and cause my hubby grief if I don't.....
