Maybe I'm a little to the side of center, but..................

Okay, I am NOT going on a diet. I could have just eaten a five course meal and someone say the word "DIET" and I would be hungry. I am not kidding you. Say the word "DIET" and my stomach starts thinking my throat has been cut. My stomach starts pinching my backbone...whatever you want to call it. I cannot now, nor have a I ever been able to "DIET".

This time, I am going to modify my eating habits (yes, I know that means no more chips at night after the kids have gone to bed or no more chocolate ice cream either), but I am going to try to eat healthier and smaller portions.

While I'm NOT Dieting, I am going to try to incorporate some more movement in my day. I am limited as to how much movement is good for me because of the RA. But I can certainly move around more than I do now. I'm not talking a marathon here, just more activity each day. I have a stationary bike and it certainly has been stationary. LOL. Three times a week, I am going to ride this wonderful torture device and then that night, I am going to use my handy dandy heating pad to help me use my hips and knees. I have some range of motion exercises that I can do and am going to do three days a week. Nothing fancy smancy, just small steps.

And then, once I get some of this weight off (cause, let's face it, that kind of restricts me too), I will feel better about myself and my body will feel better which in turn will make me want to move more, right? Well, it sounds like a good plan anyway.

So wish me luck with my NOT Dieting and more movement idea. Maybe, just maybe, it will work this time......

I hope you guys have a super fantastic week. And don't forget to smile at people, you never know what battle they are fighting......

Good luck!

I've actually been working on a post similar to this, LOL! About how I love food too much to "diet"... so I guess I had better start moving ny behind before it gets any bigger!
