Random Thoughts' Monday: Hips Don't Lie

Unfortunately... Mine are telling me I need to get re-acquainted with my treadmill and Pilates mat. Sigh...

I mean, who has time to exercise, eh? I try to get everything done in that small window when my son is at school. Email, social network presence, writing. Just enough hours to do all that and not go insane. I have to squeeze a 'healthy lunch' too in there. Who gets to exercise in there? *shudder*

I'll admit it - I hate exercising. Not only do I not have the time (and I hear some people going"You make time, Zee!) but I do not have the inclination either. I don't like my body hurting - and yes, I know the more I exercise, the less sore I will be. It's like a word count - the more you write, the more it all adds up to give you a big total.

But yes, I've put on weight. I have no idea how much (thank God!) but I know it has all gone down to settle on my hips. My jeans fit more snugly now, I who recently prided myself in needing a belt on my jeans to get it to stay put. Not helped at all that it's winter here. Comfort food, the cold temps that makes you even more wary of doing anything except lounge in your super-comfy and warm sweat pants on your couch...

New goal now - lose weight. Or get a slimmer silhouette. Doable...? I wonder.

Wish me luck!

From Mauritius with love,

Zee

LOL! I am so with you there! I managed to drop a few (not necessarily pounds, but I did slim down just a little!) by avoiding sodas, candy and breads for about a month. But then the headaches came back and in order to not take a lot of aspirin, I drink Coke's and eat chocolate, the caffeine kick works faster than the aspirin. That was last week and once again, I feel a bit chubby around the waist. Sigh. I miss my high school weight.....

Ack girl! I managed to bring my carbs down and whittled my waist this way, but now gotta focus on the hips. Total eek moment here.

Glad to hear you found something that works. Guess we need to join up as exercise-encouragement buddies. Total eeek again!

Hugs!

OMG! I'm in the same boat. I started back to the torture chamber last week. And I'm absolutely starving even though I've been trying to eat every 2-3 hours to keep my metabolism going. I hurt all over! :( Completely unfair!

Kathleen, I soooo agree! It's totally unfair! I'm still eyeing my treadmill with distrust, and the only thing I wanna do on my Pilates mat is curl up and sleep.

And so unfair too that now, this mood, is the perfect time that screaming for chocolate cake! Arghhh!
