|Office/craft/guest room gets "yoga room" added to its title|
I was not impressed when a friend excitedly informed me I could shop at Layne Bryant with her. Mentally, I was not a "big girl" and squeezing into size 14's (REFUSED to buy the size I should --16) just didn't fit my image of me! My 5'4" in frame is very small boned. Adult watches and bracelets are often too large for me, even when I have extra pounds on me.
A long story short, I joined WW (for the "diet"), lost the weight, quit WW, gained the weight and found I had to go back. Back and forth, up and down, I went, and struggled until I changed my thinking and wasn't there just for the diet, but for the life-style change. I refused to do anything to loose the weight that I couldn't see doing for the rest of my life. The weight FLEW off, and before I knew it, I was down to a size 4! I kept the weight off through a healthy and active lifestyle for many years. Then I moved to Alaska.
Winters are long, dark, and depressing! Five pounds became ten, then fifteen, twenty, and now I am twenty-five pounds, and three dress sizes, larger than when I got off the plane in June of 2010. My entire world changed. No horse riding, no mucking stalls, no endurance racing/training with friends. My cholesterol was sky high, low iron, my health, a year ago (have to make that appointment soon)!
I rejoined WW last year, dropped 10 pounds, stress eating put it back on, along with another 5, and I've been struggling.
I knew I couldn't follow the plan during the holidays, and have been slowly adding healthy activities as well as healthy eating (which is what the new WW 360 is all about--small changes that have big results).
This week's challenge was to make changes to your living space.
Yesterday I cleaned the fridge and tossed outdated foods, as well as unhealthy items. I arranged the food I put back in so the healthy foods are right there in sight, easy to grab.
Part of the move to get my office/craft/guest room more organized was to also be able to do my yoga. I guess there is no better time than the present, so this morning I did my yoga, everything is neatly in the basket by my desk, CD is now in the laptop, the real challenge will be to do it tomorrow before work!
