Happy Thursday Morning Everyone!
I want to make something clear. I RUN FOR FOOD! Seriously.... most days I run so that I know I have just a "few" more calories to eat junk. I have a problem... it's no secret. However, I'm looking for help. I crave convenience and therefore because of that, I eat fast food. A LOT!!!
I KNOW that if I wasn't exercising and running consistently, I would gain weight steadily. Over the last 4 months, ( the last one doesn't count ) but from April - July I lost 12 pounds. I gave up soda completely, and did not eat fast food except for the occasional Subway. I was feeling great! Absolutely fantastic.
But, now this last month, back on soda heavily again. Anything diet is my soda of choice. And, EVERY DAY for lunch I eat fast food. Yesterday was DQ chicken fingers and a SUNDAE! My weight has stayed at 139, which is a good thing, however I can feel everything sliding. My belly is bloated, my skin is dry, I hardly drink water. Among other things.
So you're asking.... if you were "healthy " once, why not just jump on the train? I DON'T KNOW! I love running - thank goodness! I still get up 6 days a week at 4:50AM to run. Saturday, I'm planning a 10 mile long run.
My "mothering" skills I feel are suffering too because I'm not teaching my children how to eat healthy. Many times their dinners include at least a piece of fruit ( THANK GOD ) but otherwise it's chicken nuggets, PB & J or the sort. Of course they don't mind and they are extremely active and very healthy, skinny little boys. But, I MIND.... and I can't seem to get on track.
So my question is: For anyone that may reads my blog: How do I start? I work full time - get home at 5:45 at night - dinner is a struggle to get going so convenience takes over. We haven't had a family sit down meal at the the table in months. Most meals the kids eat at the counter on stools and I stand.
Have a very happy and hopefully healthy Labor Day Weekend! :)
