So, everyone knows that I am working on being more healthy. I want to lose 22lbs by the time I go back to the doctor in July. I am wanting to get myself much healthier so that we can start a family.
No, I'm not pregnant, yet.
Just wanted to get that out of the way before people start jumping to conclusions.
Okay. Back to being healthy. About a year ago (last July) I stopped drinking soda. I did it cold turkey. Because I know that I can't slowly stop myself from doing things. I'll always be like "Well, a little more won't hurt." So all I drink is unsweetened tea, water, and occasionally lemonade. I don't drink a lot of bottled juice because it's got a lot of sugar in it.
I don't eat a lot of processed foods. I don't eat much white bread, when I do eat bread it's mostly wheat and whole grain. I try not to eat out much. As you can tell, I love cooking and eating at home. If it wasn't for the Hubbs, I could definitely be a vegetarian. Or even vegan since I'm lactose intolerant.
We've been talking about negative self-talk in class a lot. For a week (or longer) we were supposed to say something positive to ourselves in place of the negative. Mine was "I am working toward having a more positive body image".
We had been going to the gym. But I have osteoarthritis in most of my joints so the warm-cold-warm-cold weather we've been having is killing me. I don't know that we're going back to the gym, but as soon as this weather figures itself out and I stop hurting all the time, I'm going to start running again.
I'm determined to get healthy. I want to be healthy for me, for Blayne, and for my pregnancy. Again, I'm not pregnant yet.
What do you do to stay healthy?
