So, lately I’ve been thinking about that dirty of dirtiest words… you know that one that starts with a D and ends with an IET. I hate that word. But as my waistline is not getting any smaller these days – and in fact seems intent on getting maybe just a little bit bigger – it’s becoming clearer to me by the day that pretty soon I’m gonna need to start doing something about it.
What makes this harder, is that I *know* what to do. I’ve successfully and healthfully lost weight in the past, not even all that long ago, while pregnant with Little BB no less! Remember those rocking days when I counted calories all through my second pregnancy and maintained my weight for 9 months while disbelieving nurses made disbelieving faces at me? And then I lost 30 pounds after she was born and another 10 pounds while breastfeeding? And it was glorious?
Well, then I stopped breastfeeding and slowwwwwwly gained back twenty pounds. Really. I know, it makes me sad, too. Apparently I’m having a really hard time accepting the fact that I can’t eat 2,000 calories a day anymore. And the number that the experts are recommending, 1500 calories. It makes me sad. And pouty. And I don’t like it. And I don’t really feel like exercising regularly either. Apparently knowing what to do and wanting to do it are two different things. Huh.
So my Aloha Friday question this week is:
What do you do to motivate yourself to eat healthy and exercise even when you don’t want to and it’s cold outside and chocolate tastes good?
