Another issue is food. I changed so much about what and how I eat but apparently it is not enough, but enough to keep me at the same weight no matter what exercise I do. So the meal plan is the next step. I hate to grocery shop and I love to cook yet I hate the process of trying to plan the meals. After 35 years of doing it I'm tired of planning. I want someone else to do it for me because I've lost all will power in that department. I know that is not something that will happen so I have to get myself together and make it work! The only "diet" that I have ever stayed on and lost weight on successfully is Weight Watchers but this point crap is not for me. I'm old school, 3 ounces of tuna old school. I don't have time or the patience to log food. Hmmm, that would be where I should probably start but when I try I will usually stop. Maybe my new phone can help me in that regard. It has apps and stuff to help with the tracking of food. This is the most difficult thing I have ever done is the food intake and I definitely need help somehow but not sure how to do it.
For Christmas one of the gifts I gave to the hubby is a signed contract to extend the "one night a week" dance class to expire December 25, 2011. He was pleased and it is my concession to him and to support him in his new found passion. Maybe I can broker a deal with the food thing. Put him in charge of my food but he can eat all kinds of stuff and pretty much stay the same and dating him some 36 years ago is where this roller coaster started. He ate stuff I had never dreamed of, fast food, and it was my downfall. I have actually given up on the fast food stuff. I may fall once in awhile but probably only ate fast food 3 times all year last year.
So here are my New Year's Resolutions:
- Up exercise, food diary, lose 50 pounds by June 4, 2011
- Find another art class to take including the one I'm already involved in. Paint more!
- Blog everyday for the year...(let's see how that one goes!)
