In the inconsistent early days of this blog, I wrote of “trying to get healthy” and “starting to exercise” and “losing weight” . . . and none of those times did it “stick.” I’m not sure what’s changed, but about two weeks ago I determined that this time would be different. And so far, it has.
I rediscovered MyFitnessPal and I’ve been wearing my FitBit (pedometer) faithfully. I’ve managed to walk 1.5 miles in 30 minutes each day for the last 7 out of 10 days, and I log everything I eat on my “MyFitnessPal” app. I made up my mind to not worry about goals. I just think about getting through the next 24 hours. In this 24 hours, I purpose to exercise and eat healthy. Yesterday’s failures do not matter. Tomorrow does not matter. Just this 24 hours. And that seems to have made all the difference in the world.
While I have had to adjust my tastebuds a bit, I’ve found that I am getting plenty of food and for the most part, it tastes good. And when I get really “desperate,” a Hershey’s Kiss has 22 calories.
