My weekend was busy and fun and lovely. Full of friends and softball games and free comic books for the kids. We're trying desperately to help them be the little dorks they were born to be.
I'm thinking of going back to therapy, just for some help staying positive. I was chatting with a friend who has weight troubles like I do, and we agreed that most people become overweight out of depression. I will readily admit that I've been depressed, and that's what got me here. However I think that if I can find small things to be happy about, talk through the shit I can't change, and start harvesting the endorphins from exercise, then I'll have a well full of happy that will keep me full and forward marching. The issue is paying for the therapy, LOL. $25 a pop ain't cheap! Even if I only go twice a month. But like with the 21 Day Fix kit, and the Shakology, I'm trying to not think about putting a price tag on my well being. I wanted to do something that would just jump-start my weight loss so I would feel like there was a way out, at least, because I don't want to fad diet. I've said it before and I stand behind the ideal that fad diets are bullshit. Eating healthy, and in moderation, along with exercise, is the way to lose weight and keep it off. But it's a lifelong change, not a 2 month change. When I got the 21 Day Fix and saw that it was basically just that, portion control and the best ideas to jump start yourself so you don't get discouraged, it changed my mind about the program. It IS what I need to follow to make changes. So I will. And it will have been money well spent.
I guess that's it for now. I'm super excited about my hummus, turkey, and veggie wrap for lunch today. I'm hungry and it sounds totally delicious. But I have to get going on the laundry. The never-ending laundry. And get to drinking some more water. The water is ridiculous. Takes all damn day to drink that much!
