Diet Time! Errrrr....Lifestyle change time!

Diet's.  It's been said that they don't work.  They actually do, but just for a short time is the problem.  I would say I am going on a diet today, but it's already a failed plan at this point.  My parents were in town this weekend and we ate, ate, ate and ate some more!  It was all yummy but my double chin this morning is telling me it wasn't worth it. 

We had donuts and french toast and Chinese food and ice cream cake and Italian and chips and candy galore!  It was one big food fest for 3 days and I am paying the price today!

I have decided that diets just don't work for me and that I have to exercise to lose weight.  Last year, I lost a bunch of weight and I mostly did it with exercise since I had changed my eating habits very little.  I should have changed them more but didn't.  Anyway, for me, it just goes to show that when I exercise, I can eat more of what I want and either stay the same weight or lose weight.  It I eat what I want without exercise, I gain weight - duh!

Anyway, I have to figure out what I like to do and just stick with it.  I do like P90X and it gives awesome results so I am tempted to start that again but it does take up so much time (but the whole time you are burning tons of calories).  I do love the way it makes me feel, but again, it is so hard to get motivated to do it!

I can't decide if I should just get up every morning and do the workouts or try to squeeze it in every night.  It is tough because I have a 2 year old.  I just want to have more time and as I've complained a million times before, I have such a long commute that makes it much harder to find the time! 

I need to take some time to devise a plan for workouts so I schedule them in instead of just hoping they will happen or that I will fit them in each day.  As they say, failing to plan is planning to fail!

I can do it, I know I can and I will and I have to since summer is coming along with less clothes!

  1. Ahhh, I understand where you're coming from. I have an hour commute each way every day and by the time I get home, make supper, eat supper, clean up, etc, etc. - workouts are not in my plan either. I plan on doing some walking on my lunches to hopefully supplement what little exercise I can squeeze in. Good luck...I'm right there with you!
