Like many of you, my New Year resolution was to be more active, eat healthier and lose a few pounds.
How am I doing 9 weeks in…I’m doing OK, better than I was, but still working on it.
Maybe that’s what I need to realize, there’s no “magic” fix…it really is a lifestyle change, a process and a commitment to be more active and to eat a healthy diet.
I’m doing OK with the activity…I walk for ~45 minutes four to five times a week and I’m loving that. For the most part we eat a fairly healthy diet, filled with protein, dairy, lots of fruit and vegetables, and whole grains. Well, when I say whole grains, I’m speaking for myself, not my husband. He is still hooked on white bread. It doesn’t matter how often I bring in tasty whole grains he comes right behind me with a loaf of white bread that would still be
preserved …I mean “fresh” 10 days later.
However, I am not without sin! I need to be more aware of portion size and …I HAVE TO STOP THE EVENING SNACKING. That is definitely my downfall, and if you can share any tips in that department, I’m all ears!!
Nine weeks in, how are you doing with your New Year resolutions?
