Honesty is the First Step: My Healthy Living Update :(


This post by Danny at Dream Big, Dream Often hits on so many good points. The first is, blogging keeps most of us honest and accountable. The second is that many of us gain weight over the holidays. The third is, when we are the problem, we then need to be our own solution. Can you identify with any of this?

In my opinion the only way to really connect with anyone is to be honest.  Not necessarily spill your guts and empty the closet honest, but honest in a general sense.   The funny thing about blogging is I find myself being “empty the closet” honest when I would not be in real life.  Anyone else experience that?

Anywho, since the holidays began in November, I neglected my eating and pretty much let the dogs run loose!  And I am now paying for that decision.  I knew I was gaining weight because I could tell my clothes were fitting differently; and by differently I mean tighter!

So this past Friday I finally weighed myself and I was instantly disappointed and needless to say immediately made the decision to go back to basics.

    yes, I can identify with all that. I know I need to lose a bit of weight, not too much but I love my chips and was able to not eat them for 3 weeks in a row, I think it was last year.

    The teenager and little ones like their chips and I know that I have a bad habit of late night snacking which I just need to cut out.

    That’s all easier said than done and I wonder if asking someone to hold me accountable to these things is a good idea?

    I’ll probably do a longer post on my blog about this. Thanks for sharing this.

  2. I feel like I need to have a lock on my mouth. I’ve been so undisciplined lately and it’s time to have some self control and stop binging. I don’t know why it’s so hard for me to get back on track. I think it’s because I love to eat really fattening food like nachos and pizza. Hopefully I will get it together soon. Thanks for sharing and commenting 😉
