My latest adventure...and it's not partying?
To begin with I don't diet. I hate diets. Anything that tells me I CAN'T, won't work with me. I eat somewhat healthy. The keyword being 'somewhat'. I eat fruits and veggies. I hate salads. I LOVE beer and cocktails. I don't really exercise much unless you count the dancing I do while partying. As you also know I suffer from insomnia. That definitely hasn't helped my immune system. In a nutshell, I'm not healthy. Who the hell likes feeling tired and sick? No wonder I haven't met the woman of my dreams!
Last week I decided that I needed to make a change. My doctor wasn't telling me I needed to lose weight. My mother wasn't nagging me either. This time I was doing it because I wanted to do it for me and no one else. What a difference! I've gone to the gym all week. I'm up at 5am and working out by 530. I've been bringing my breakfast and lunch. I don't think I've ever been this responsible (outside of work). I was even at at the gym on Saturday at 7am!
I actually have to admit that working out has given my swag a little bit of a jump start. I feel energized and confident. Who the hell knew? My only goal is to keep this up. If I lose some weight in the process, more power to me. I don't want to set any weight goals or anything crazy like that. I hate rules and imposing rules on myself would be my personal hell. Can you imagine me giving up cocktails, tapas and BEER? It's NOT going to happen. All I'm saying is that I'm going to try to eat and live somewhat healthy during the week. I'll pack my lunch (which also helps me save some $$), cook dinner as opposed to getting take-out, try to avoid happy hour during the week and go to the gym. My goal for the weekend is to eat, drink and be merry. Not bad huh? I can't stop living. I would be miserable. Absolutely...miserable!
