Eat Well, Move More











{June 10, 2012}   Bloggity Blog Blog

Tonight’s stir fry dinner with chicken, bok choy, celery, carrots, orange bell pepper, green onion, snap peas, water chestnuts over jasmine rice. Sauce was a simple citrus ginger-soy sauce.

I hadn’t intended to let days, or even weeks, go by without posting to this blog.  The past couple of weeks have been stressful, full of busy-ness and interruptions. The desire to write has been buried under a mountain of comfort food. There has been pizza, macaroni and cheese, lattes, and ice cream. That in itself is not a bad thing,  if in moderation. I’ll admit moderation has not been my strong suit lately. The walking, however, has been consistent, increasing in both time and distance.  I’ll give myself a pat on the back for that, as I get the eating well part back on track. Tonight’s dinner, for example, was far more satisfying than the pepperoni pizza I had consumed several days ago.

Life does get in the way, but I think I need to make myself a commitment to regularly update this blog. I’ve decided that twice a week should be the minimum.  So this week, I’ll resume with the photographs meals, slip in a few recipes, and share my workouts.

I also owe myself, and whatever handful of passerby’s, a few “before” photos and measurements. Tracking my progress is necessary, so that I don’t lose my motivation.  I don’t like photographs of myself, and my body image issues are creeping up again.  I have a couple of creative ideas for posting my “before” photos, and I hope they turn out well.  I should have those up later this week, as well as my “starting point” measurements.

Now, how often to update the “progress”?  Weekly seems to frequent. Monthly perhaps?
