I started the Online Weight Watchers yesterday. I've been thinking about this for a while. I don't really need to eat so much less food but better choices. I have a habit of eating at my desk throughout the day. Munching on pretzels usually. They really are a good choice for snack foods since they are so low in fat and contain no sugars. I did the WW program many years ago when we were given little books to chart our progress and foods. I read the founders true story when it first came out and was inspired. The program is really the healthiest weight loss program I have ever used. My desire with choosing to join again is to make me more aware of my choices and how much I am consuming. It will definately make me more aware in the evening time. Normally I choose not to cook and so I munch. I hate cooking for one and cleaning up after myself. But I am making this effort to change some of these bad habits.
What I intend to change - evening and night time munching. I am going to prepare ahead of time on what I plan to eat. I will plan ahead on snack foods also. I will eat breakfast - a meal I usually skip. I am thinking about planning some exercise - back to walking - but it is enormously hot. I need to think about getting my butt out of bed early in the morn and walk. Have to think about for a while though...
I have found in the past that a little discipline leads to more discipline so I am putting effort into this. I want to feel better and that is my goal to shed a few pounds and to feel better. More energy. I physically feel drained lately. Not taking vitamins - so I need to get back to that. Taking one right now.
I'm also feeling stress. I'm not recovering from it fast enough before I face it again. Work has become stressful as I try to manage the demanding phone calls and keep myself on track. Lately more than once I have wanted to go off and cry somewhere all by myself. But I have been trying not to do that. The stress of work is bleeding into my personal life too.
I don't feel like doing anything garden related lately. It is so enormously hot. The gardens are drying up in the hot sun and dry conditions. After someone unhooked my garden hose I discover that it is broken now. Have to buy another hose and hope that I can save what hasn't burn up from the sun and drought. Walking from the car to the indoors requires a wash cloth to wipe away the sweat that breaks out so quickly. Conditions are simply miserable outside right now.
Gosh this post sounds so whiney but then I am whiney at the moment. It will pass though and I know it and that is the good thing.
