It’s been quite a while since I’ve worked out and I think my membership has expired so… I think I need to start doing something to get in the swing of healthy eating and exercise. For a while I was on a good diet and working out often enough but true to form I let everything slip away. To be fair it’s not necessarily an issue of being lazy or not wanting to make these changes but working two jobs and having a family put me in a situation where the time isn’t there. We  have maintained a good diet in that we don’t have lots of junk available for snacking but there’s just not that effort to fill up the fridge with really healthy choices. My low weight was around 147 a couple months ago which IMO was a little smaller than I like to be. My weight today was 155 which I feel comfortable with but unfortunately that 8 pound gain isn’t muscle, yuk!

Sitting here tonight I decided to make a trip to Burger King for a Whopper, something I recently got back in the bad habit of doing. I’m embarrassed to say I ate there THREE times last week and  loved every bite of it. I don’t know what it is about junk food but it has a pull on me right now even though I know a serving of hummus would make me just as happy. The problem is BK is right down the street and the nearest “healthy food” spot is several miles away. The other option is to go home and eat but once again I can’t say there is anything readily available that’s particularly good to for me.  I have not gone to lunch yet so I’m hoping this blog will encourage me somehow to pass the fast food up and either not eat anything or find something at least somewhat healthy.

Work is keeping me busy and I don’t know for sure when I will be able to make the move to just one job but I do know the possibility is right around the corner. I’m thinking more in terms of physical and mental well being over financial gain. I’m telling myself if I can go sooner I would love to start jogging around the neighborhood which just isn’t an option working this shift and get back in the swing of doing it right.
