How are you? How was your Thanksgiving? Mine was fabulous! We hosted this year and it was very laid back and fun and just all around great. :) I made a turkey and didn't burn down the house! WOOT! ;-)
Today is the day I'm getting serious about losing the weight. I have recently gained a lot of weight back. Like, 7 or 8 pounds. I'm not sure why; I'm looking into whether or not it's the Zoloft causing it. In any case, I am feeling very claustrophobic in my own body, so something has to change, and soon.
I have to learn to be content and not envy/hate people who bounce back after having a baby. Like Anna Paquin. HELLO?? Less than 2 months after having twins???
They were born a few weeks early, but still.
I've been thinking a lot about self-control. I have a whole post I want to do on it, and I will, a little later. But basically, there is no magic cure. *I* have to take control of my eating habits, of my exercise habits and of my health.
Isn't that a great quote? I love it. Because it's so true. I just have to DO IT. No more excuses, no more whining, no more pity-parties that my body doesn't melt fat through breastfeeding. It is what it is. And I just have to take it and work with it, and do something about it. Baby steps. One day at a time.
I haven't been super faithful to drink my ViSalus shakes twice a day as a meal replacement, like you're supposed to, so today that changes. I got a long list of recipes to try, and I'll be experimenting with different flavors to help keep it fun and not boring. I also have a challenge for myself, which I'll post about tomorrow.
In the meantime, I will be working on self-control.
