My Mundane Musings

Growing up I longed for the fast paced life of big city life and corporate America. Now I’m a stay at home mom of 4 in a small rural community! And I wouldn’t have it any other way! (At least for now).

Healthy living… June 19, 2008

So, I’m jumping the gun just a little bit and starting early. Hoping to get some good trends started before I actually start my 31 days of healthy living on July 1st. I have four goals…

  1. Eat as healthy as possible, as much as possible.
  2. Drink 120 oz. of water daily and and match any caffeine intake ounce for ounce.
  3. Exercise at least 20 minutes a day every day but Sunday.
  4. No eating after 10 p.m.

They all seem like do-able goals. But the truth is, yesterday I tried my best to eat healthy. I tried my best to drink water. (I hate water. Dr. Pepper is so much better). I walked 20 minutes on the treadmill in the morning. And yet but 4pm, my body thought it was STARVING! The baked ravioli for dinner did little to calm the monster in my stomach. My brain new that I wasn’t, but had a very hard time convincing my stomach otherwise. I could hear my stomach coaxing my brain, “There is chocolate in the kitchen cabinet. Remember chocolate? We had chocolate yesterday. We *both* like chocolate.” *sigh* It was a battle of wills. And in the end I ate two graham crackers while Chip ate s’mores. *sigh*

So, I’m starting my quest a few days early. So I don’t DIE when July starts. I’ve joined Gyminee to keep track of things like what I’m eating, how much I’m exercising, and the ugly truth that is my weight. So, who’s going to join me? Go sign up for your own Gyminee account and be my friend¬†and let’s strive to live a healthier life together.
