I decided to do a little bit of exercise while watching TV.  It's a start.  Of course I need to do more, but at least I got my body moving.  

I went into the kitchen because, for a change, I felt the tiniest bit hungry (I usually don't, believe it or not!).  

This is what I saw:

Recees Peanut Butter Cups, Hershey Bars, Chocolate Chip Cookies (the Enormous Bakery kind!), at least 6 kinds of potato chips, and the cake my daughter baked last night.  I know there's more in the fridge and the cabinets, too.

Now, before you think I bought all this...I didn't.  I don't drive, nor do I go food shopping.  This is my partner's doing.  She loves food.  Yup.

But, she's not holding a gun to my head.  It's hard.  Because I love sweets.

I walked away from all of it.  Go me, right?  For now, I guess.  I did take a Diet Pepsi.  Yeah, diet sodas are not fantastic.  What I will eat later, I don't know...

I need to move

doing it alone



I know that I need to exercise.  So hard to get moving.  It is hard to fight through the fibro fog.  And, yes, fibromyalgia is/feels like an excuse at this point.  People with MUCH WORSE than that fight back.  So can I.  So MUST I.  I just want someone to do it with me.  I asked Stacy if she would walk with me to Gianna's school tonight for Meet The Teacher night instead of having to park the car and fighting with the traffic.  She was not thrilled with that idea.  I guess she works all day and she is tired.  Still, she can use the exercise.  Not being mean.  She has diabetes AND she stands in one place all day.  She needs to exercise.  Looks like I have to do this myself.

So far, I am not doing well with food.  I have to really get into the mindset for better eating and better health.  I want to look better, feel better, DO better.  I want support.  That's why I came here.  Now, I have to go find some.  Then, I need to get my substantial butt off the couch and move!

Well then...

Dinner wouldn't have been so bad, had I not had the three rolls.  OMG, over 1000 calories and 57 grams of fat alone in those rolls!!!   And then I had the Country Crock to add another 21 grams of fat on top of it!  

This is extremely helpful, I have to say.  Because, believe it or not, I eat way less than ANYONE ELSE in my family.  I actually estimated how much soup I had.  It is probably less, but I don't know how much my bowls hold, so I wanted to err on the side of caution.  Still, it didn't come up as that many calories.  I imagine homemade matzo ball soup may or may not be more, although I used vegetable oil, not chicken fat as some people do, to make the balls.  Well, onto Thursday...

diet sabatoge



So (apparently, I am starting all my journal entries with the word "so"), my partner came home with the creamer that I thought I was going to give up.  I told her that I was going to try to cut calories because I am fat.  She said she "likes my fat."  ::Sigh::  That's always hard, when someone you love "loves you fat."  Been there before.
