and Happy Hour –
Overall, we try to eat fairly healthy most of the time but I do like my wine and cocktails which usually leads to a salty snack of some sort!
Well……last week Chris and I had a dressy event to go to. Thursday evening I decided to try on my 2 options.
I put on my first choice dress and IT DIDN’T ZIP!!!
Umm….it wasn’t a happy time for me!!! Chris, being the super supportive husband, said it was because I’ve been lifting weights since it is a side zip and it was the top 1/3 that didn’t work. Nice try!!
So, I have realized that it is time to make some major changes!! I can’t possibly work out longer or harder. My mileage is currently high (for me) and I know that I need at least one day off most weeks even though my head says “work out anyway!!”
Now I’m realizing that I have to make some changes:
* cut out some of the junk (chips, Cheetos…..)
* eliminate happy hour some days
* work on portion control (a huge weakness of mine)
* work on eating plenty of healthy meals – protein heavy!!!
The problem is when I cut down on the amount I eat for dinner then I’m starving within 30 minutes!!! I guess it will just take a bit of time to readjust (again).
PS – I realize that I’m not really overweight – I’m just not the size that I prefer!!!!
