    Whats your “Why”??
    Lets mentally prepare ourselves for this temptation-filled weekend!!

    …. Share with us your reasons for being here and working at this every day! Why do you keep getting back on the wagon??

    And if you could also incorporate some pictures. Sometimes the best way to paint a picture is to share a picture of what you mean.


    Let’s keep pushing through! One more week and we’re finishing up March!
    Where do you want to be in April?

    Making some new recipes and they are high in calories! I have to alter them to make them lower cals. Scared I may gain this week because of them. For both new recipes, I ate before calculating how much calories there were, kept forgetting 🙃

    @BlissfulK I hear that! I made some jambalaya this week and was shocked to see it was 460 calories per serving! 😯 BUT we had it for dinner on Thursday and lunch yesterday and I froze a big container and STILL have some left! I'm thinking there's way more than the 8 servings the recipe claimed.

    @Krysless2 I'll have to get back to you on my why. I wrote a big post a few months ago that I need to find. No way I'm typing that all over... 😁

    @DaffyGirl88

    I think the major offender for our recipes is “rice”. I don’t eat rice and have not been using rice flour. I wanted to use up the remainder rice flour bought from awhile ago. The lasagna made used sheets made of rice flour blend and used rice flour for pizza crust. Also vegan cheese is high calories, and didn’t check calories until afterwards. I was trying to use it up before it expired, lol. I was way too generous with vegan cheese in both recipes. I’m gluten free and vegan and make up a lot of recipes since there’s not many recipes that incorporate both lifestyles and the ingredients I like to use. I have learned to say no to rice while losing weight and check calories of entire recipe before making and eating! Lol

    I went to baseball game and we didn’t get home till 6pm and at that time, I was hot and exhausted. So no exercise. But walking up and down stairs that day with 90 degrees heat was more than enough for the day. I am thinking this morning I’m going to insanity. I have to push.

    I had a gift card for Cheddars and decided while we were out to go ahead and use it. It was late and had been up and going since 6am and hadn't eaten all day. I didn't feel like I over-ate and quit eating as soon as I felt full. The food was delicious BUT it caused me to swell and bloat BAD!

    @Krysless2 here goes, and I'll try not to write a book. ;) I'm 61 and have been on this journey most of my life. My Why changed over the years from wanting to look good going out partying with my friends, to lose the baby fat, to not be an embarassment to my kids, to look good for a special event, etc. I think perhaps my current Why may be the most important.

    Being 61, retirement is no longer some far off point in the future but actually just a couple of years away. Life expectancy being what it is my biggest fear is not having enough money to live on. I've been doing a lot of research on the subject and the biggest expense senior citizens have is healthcare. Thus, if I want my money to last I need to be healthy. I need to do cardio to keep my heart and lungs strong. Strength and yoga to keep my bones and muscles strong and my balance good so that I don't fall and break a hip. I need to eat right so that my body has the nutrients that it needs to stay healty and strong.

    My father was morbidly obese. The last years of his life he had emphysema and COPD and was on oxygen 24/7. I recently saw my brother at my niece's wedding, first time in 2 years due to COVID. I was shocked at the weight he had gained. Talking to him later I learned that during the last 2 years he had been bedridden due to blood clots in his legs and had a total hip replacement (yes I somehow missed those things). While talking he was sitting down because he didn't have the energy to stand, and he had to take off his bowtie because he couldn't breathe. Honestly it's a wonder he made it down the aisle. My brother is only 63.

    Bottom line here is that we have a choice on how we age. We can't prevent getting older but we can prevent decaying. I intend to stay strong enough and healty enough to live my life, not sit in a recliner and watch from the sidelines. I want to continue to ride my bike and roll down hills with my grandson and everything else that life entails for as long as possible.

    That is my why.

    I restarted insanity and I made a calendar to follow. My 12 yr old daughter even joined me. She could lose some weight and get a little more active. I’m glad that I’m that I can set an example for her. She is slightly overweight since the pandemic started.
    Well now to rest as I work long days tomorrow and Monday. Will try to update here n there but it’s hard.
