This week I'm at my parents. We "share" a Wii and the Wii Fit program ~ basically I use it whenever
we are here.
Since the last time I used it (around December 2008) I have gained 6.6 lbs.
Since I have been here, using it daily, I have gained 2 lbs.
There are a ton of excuses I could use ... the medication I am on makes me gain weight, the 1 lb of Easter bunny solid milk chocolate that I scarfed down in 4 days,
I am starting to run so that would add muscle, or I am mid-menstrual cycle and crampy and bloated. All of these are true but I still feel disgusting and blimpy.
With a 3-year old daughter and a 1-year old son I want to ensure I am healthy and focused on a positive self-image.
I don't want my daughter to hear me complaining about my butt being too big or my hips or wherever. I want her to know that Mommy goes to the gym or works out to get healthy and feel good. I want to be here for her and don't want my health to be a problem. I also want her to have a good self-image.
What am I going to do about it? This here is my 5-point plan.
