December 2011. Where I am.

It's been nearly 4 weeks since I have been here.  Four weeks since I walked, rode, stretched, anythinged.
Four weeks of eating crap, carbs, rubbish.   There isn't much chance I'd enjoy smimming in any lakes or climbing any mountains any time soon.  And seeing as that is why I want to be fitter my thinking and actions (or lack of) don't make any sense.  Any fitness and health that I had gained throughout the year is gone.  Completely.

Husband has been off work for nearly 2 months and though it's not his fault I always eat badly and move hardly at all when he is here.  I don't know why, it's just too easy to give up on it all when he is eating chips or chocolate and laying on the lounge watching TV.  I don't even like the TV so I shouldn't even be concerned that it's on and the chips are in the cupboard and the chocolate is in the fridge...But it does seem that I am useless at wanting to get fitter and healthier when he is around.  That is something that I will really need to work on next year.  Or tomorrow.  Or now...He is not at all interested in doing anything about his health so I will be in this alone.

I will start first thing next year.  That gives me 4 days to get ALL the crappy, unhealthy stuff out of the house.

I will asked the husband to help me with this as it seems I am too weak minded to do it by myself.   I will put his munchies and the boxes of crackers in a locked box and give him the keys    How bad is that though, needing to lock up food so I don't eat it.

The exercise bike needs a bit of a cleanup and some oil.  As does the other bike.   I need to start with the regular mowing again  Get back to the 30 minutes at least each day.  The grass was looking good there for awhile.

I have a Gingerbread House here sitting on the table and have planned on breaking it today when other people are here.  I will put some away for the husband and send some home with them,  the freezing to have later idea will be put aside as I want everything gone...I need to get the husband to eat the icecream I made a few days ago.  That stuff is divine and I will not be making it again any time soon.

So, bring on the new year and the fitter and healthier me.  Again!!

We have our 25th wedding anniversary on the 14 February, no real idea of what we'll be doing but it will involve some sort of swimming, walking and climbing...

So first goal, to be fit enough to have some fun on a week away.
Plan...Cut out all the crappy carbs.  We grow all our own vegies so there is still going to be a lot of carbs in our diet but maybe smaller plates and more moving will work.
I'll print out a sheet with some boxes to tick and a timeline thing maybe...that needs thinking about but will be done today.

It's now 6.15am.  Too early to mow so I'll go water everything while I wait for breakfast time.

  1. Hey Barb, it's not easy losing weight without family support. My DH buys me treats now in the form of a mango or other fruit we don't usually buy instead of bringing home an ice cream or a chocolate. He's finally realised that just because I'm eating a controlled portion of a pie/meal etc doesn't mean he has to 'starve' so he can have seconds if he wants. Unfortunately, for me, the man has a high metabolism and is built like a stick insect so he'll never become fat. Lol, he could live on ice cream and be skinny....I wish!
    I've reached saturation point with the junk food and am looking forward to loading up the trolley with the salad veges tomorrow.
