I wish' .... I had the willpower to
stay on one particular diet,
and it would be ______!
What an appropriate topic for this week, the week after I have eaten nothing but candy. Really, I am pretty sure I had Hershey chocolate eggs for lunch at least twice last week. (They only come out at Easter so I have to get my fill when I can.)
There is not really a name for the diet I want to stick with. I believe it is called "eating a balanced diet and exercising". That is right. No hardcore stuff here. I just wish I could cut back on the sugar, increase the fruits and veggies (ewww) and exercise. But, for some reason, I can't seem to do it. I would love to be able to ride on a Saturday with my daddy's group (50 to 75 miles) or run a marathon with my aunt. Instead, I stay home and eat cinnamon rolls on Saturday mornings and can't run more than a mile.
I have actually been thinking a lot about this lately. The weather has been getting warmer and it looks like we will be making an appearance at the beach this summer. I have been looking at gyms and thinking about what I want to do to get in shape. Have I actually done anything? NO! I am getting really good about talking about it and I have become and authority on local gyms, what they offer, how much, do you have to sign a contract...
I am hoping that I will find the willpower, time and energy to start to workout. Between school, kids and their activities and my husband I am just wiped out. How do you find the time and energy to workout/exercise in all that you have going on?
