So, it really took my 69-year-old mother to put me back on track again.
My mom hits the gym 4 days a week. She is overweight and has lost considerable size by eating less and working out. She does Zumba, lifts weights, (she even SQUATS, yo), walks, etc. I told her I ate two sandwiches. She said that was too much bread for her. I said because she’s diabetic she can only eat one slice. She admonished me and said, “It’s not that. I have lost all this weight and I don’t want to gain it back. I am eating less.” Whoa. If that’s not a wake-up call I don’t know what is.
So I went to the store yesterday. I have stopped ordering out. I am buying Diet Pop again. I don’t care how tired I am after school– that’s what meal prep is for. I meal prepped last week and will do it tomorrow– the longest I ever meal prepped in a row was one week. I NEED to do it or I get tempted to slide into bad habits.
When I lost 140 lbs years ago by sheer will and determination and eating healthy that really inspired the people around me. I made hard decisions. I said no to a lot of stuff. I don’t know what happened in the meantime, but I have to come back, for my sanity. I started my mom on this path back then and now she’s ahead and that doesn’t sit well with me. I need to focus and get back to me.
I am returning to Wright’s Gym as this coming semester will have four days in a row of no school. I will attend Fitness 19 on Sundays.
Back to who I used to be. Starting now.
