I'm finding it too hard to concentrate, so maybe meditation isn't the solution right now, I have the tools though so I'll get back to it later today. I also think it's time to incorporate exercise into my life, more than walking the dogs around a path my hubby built us with the snow blower. It's a good size path, I walk it up to 10 times a day on most days unless it gets cold like it has been lately -24F yesterday.
I need to tone my arms and legs and squish my gut and butt. I also need to bring my cardio levels up, this whole thing is about my poor heart. The older men in my family have all had heart disease and I know nothing about my fathers side of the family so I need to take care of myself because heart disease is the number one killer amongst women. So I have lots going against me, my weight, the diet I ate, the fact that I can't afford medical care so no doctor visits etc... So I must take care of myself and make it a priority. I guess I'm doing that while following the SBD and I have to say, I love it. Yes it takes planning and work i.e. having to make salads etc. but I'm ok with that. I am not craving anything, habits are just that, yes at midnight I'd love to munch on some chips but that's not a craving that's just a habit that I am learning to change.
I just thought of something, maybe I'm not "feeling" 16 lbs lighter because I know in the past I lost more weight and I'm measuring my success with that. I should stop that right now, appreciate how well I'm doing on this and move forward.
Are there any strength training exercises for the morbidly obese? It's time for a Google search, I figure if I incorporate some strength training and Lesley Sansone plus walking with my dogs I should feel real good when I head to Canada this May. Yes I'm moving back to Canada (that's a whole other blog post) and I already have a nice home waiting for me and my family to move into (thank you God).
Well I've been all over the place with this post so I'll say goodbye for now and update my stats.
Thanks for coming by!
