Made It Past Day 1 Yet?

The answer to that question would be a big old NO!

I decided to enjoy all of the baked goodies and candies that we made for the holiday, and Christmas Dinner…don’t even get me started.

Was it a good decision? Again, NO it was not.

Today I feel puffy, bloated, achy joints, and the dreaded not being able to breath when I try to bend over and tie my shoes because my jeans are way too tight. Then of course, the itchy stomach and love handles that have been constrained in those tight jeans for far too many hours and now have indents from every seem and fold in said tight jeans. Yet again a reminder that “enjoying” those baked goodies and poor but tasty food choices throughout the past few weeks was a horrible idea and personally NOT WORTH IT!

So, here I sit again, typing in my journal about how I am still not able to get back on track to a healthier lifestyle.

Which brings up yet another point: It’s not only how my body feels so crappy but it is also hard to look at my naked self. I don’t like looking like a mascot for a tire company with all my spare tires and saggyness.

FYI, TMI Ahead: After I had lost a good amount of weight (over 2 years ago) I was comfortable in my skin and clothes. Being naked (around home) was comfortable and sleeping naked had many benefits (wink, wink). Now, I definitely do NOT walk around or sleep naked. I am clothed from neck to knees. “The sweatpants are tied”, as my husband likes to say. I want to get back to being comfortable naked and also back to the smokin’ hot sex life we had when we were thinner. They say you need a “why”, maybe that should be mine? 😊

Here’s to tomorrow, another Day 1.

Food Feels Like…

There are just some foods (or beverages) that evoke pleasant feelings, emotions or memories.

For me, iced coffee is one of those foods. It’s funny, but not all iced coffees give me a happy/giddy feeling. I hadn’t realized that…now I want to figure out what is in some of my favorite coffeehouse coffees that makes me feel happy/giddy. Hmmmm…

Today’s “What to Write…”

Write about a food that evokes feelings of happiness, not comfort (comfort foods are a whole other subject), and why?
