Next month marks my 37th birthday! I can’t believe I’m even saying that out loud. But I’m not at a healthy weight which is causing all sorts of health issues for me, so something has to change!
I’ve struggled with my weight since I was a freshman in college, but it has totally gotten out of control the last ten years or so. I have asthma, so when I’m on steriods I gain weight…but I have another medical condition that makes my body act like I have diabetes (though I don’t) and makes it hard to loose weight. Really? It’s the worst. I have to take these meds that make me gain weight, but then I can’t take it off. And who can deny that I like food. It’s a lose-lose situation.
I’m pushing 40! My kids love to be active! My hubby is making some great dietary changes! It’s my turn…I can do this!
So what am I gonna do?
Trading in my love of candy for some Lean Cuisine!
I’m replacing one meal with an easy freezer meal from Lean Cuisine. They really do taste pretty good and I need something that I can do quick and easy at lunch time. I ended up a Sam’s Club to buy their Lean Cuisine Asian 6 packs. I had to…I’m cheap and they have some of the best prices.
I’ve also downloaded the Couch 2 5K beginner running program to my iPhone. Honestly, I downloaded it about 9 months ago, but haven’t used it. I had every intention to, but then it got really hot (like over 100F at 8am)…I’m so not going to take up running in those temps. So now that it’s cooling off I have no excuse! Zero! Zilch! Nada!
I’m all set to go….stay tuned for a couple weeks and I will update y’all on my progress. I promise!
What do you do to stay healthy? What works to keep you accountable and motivated?
