to a lifestyle change...
Some that follow my art whether it be to see what I am up to, or to see what I have to offer for sale, probably can notice that I have slowed down with my work, when in reality I should be speeding up, as the biggest sale season is fast approaching!
Well, the truth is.. I'm just darn tired.. I have more on my plate family wise and more on my butt weight wise.. and this stinkin' heat & humidity just doesn't help, i feel like a Sloth...sigh......
After getting off my long bout of prednisone I tipped the scales at 210 ! SCREAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!! I always can expect to gain 10-15 pounds with that crap and I seem to get more & more depressed and more and more chubby.
My heck, i was never a super active person, but I did always have enough energy to pidder patter about the house non-stop, now I just want to sit on the couch or lay in bed watching all the episodes of "Hot in Cleveland" and dream of being as thin as the character "Victoria Chase" while eating Otter pops.
Well by golly about two weeks ago I had an epifany,and some huge inspiration from a few friends that have changed their lifestyles and way of eating and have lost some un-wanted pounds.
It was high time I challenged myself to change...
My mom gifted me this wonderful book exactly a year ago.
I love this book as it teaches good healthy eating. It gives you a good understanding of good and bad carbs, and is chuck full of yummy recipes using mostly what we all have in our cupboards.
I did try this way of eating a year ago and lost about 16 lbs. in one month, then I became ill again and had to take that darn prednisone. Feeling like I was going to get fat anyways, I re-lasped back to my old unhealthy eating habits of processed high fat & sugary foods.
Well no more!!! Two weeks ago I pulled that book of the shelf, and began a healthy way of eating once again.. Starting at 210 I am now down to 203lbs. I cant say that I see or feel a difference yet, as i am still sluggish.. but I am pushing myself to stay off the couch and keep moving about, and just seeing the numbers going down on the scales is inspiring me to keep going. I figure when i reach 195 I will see a difference when I look into the mirror and also will have more energy.
my goal is 145 lbs.
Oakie doak, I guess I'd better keep moving.. Alan and I are going on another mini camping trip..
I wont be having smore's but am going to grill a pear instead.
I will keep you posted as the buckets of flub comes off my bod ;)
Wishing you all the best for this week!
