Well, I could have told you that the resolution I made for February was one of the stupidest resolutions I’ve ever made! You would think that breaking the fast food addiction would be mind over matter, but in reality, it was very difficult. It started with a pizza. Then I was caught out and so hungry, with the only option being fast food. I thought, well, I don’t have to get the worst thing on the menu or do this again. “It will be our dirty little secret, now won’t it…” Next thing you know, I had abandoned the resolution. I made it about two weeks.
The good news is that I have given up fast food again, because I want to. John and I both are on a very strict diet right now because we want to be healthy, so we have gone back to Jenny Craig. While I’m not a big fan of the food, it is better for us in the short term than the way we were eating, and we will definitely lose some weight! Before Melody was born, we both lost significant amounts of weight on JC so I know we can be successful again. The trick will be in keeping it off.
For the March resolution, I selected walking 20-30 minutes, 3-5 times a week. This will work pretty well because the weather is getting nicer all the time and I can walk during lunch breaks. I also count my walking while I grocery shop, because dammit I’m moving! Of course, I’m a week late in starting the resolution but this is one I will need to keep going for weight loss and general health.
