Alrighty then. I need your help.
Since November of last year (as in, six months ago) I have gained nearly twenty pounds. As in eighteen. As in ten plus eight, for those of you not good at math. Now, someone my size and stature shows every ounce, I kid you not. And I know some of you are saying, “WHAT EVS! YOU ARE STILL SKINNIER THAN I AM!” But this has nothing to do with skinny. This has everything to do with I FEEL LIKE TOTAL CRAP.
My pants don’t button. My shirts are getting tight. Heck, I even feel like my shoes are smaller. I feel like a blob of blah, have no energy and no motivation. I need some sort of an intervention.
Please, motivate me to start eating better and start moving. Bathing suit season is just around the corner. I know I need to cut out the sugar and the refined foods and get some weight exercises and stretch more. I’ve been doing this for years and I know what works for me. I just ain’t doing it.
So. Please share. How do you stave off the comfort eating and munchies? What do you do when you are craving sugar? How do you get toning exercises in? Do I need to go back to the gym? And am I kidding myself and just need to be patient and perhaps GET MORE SLEEP to solve my problem?
Thank you. In the meanwhile, here’s the haircut I got yesterday to help me feel better about myself:
Yup. I went from shoulder lenghth to freaking short. But I love it. And my husband actually noticed this time.
