McFatty Monday: The Blame Game

Back when I first started blogging, I participated in McFatty Monday's over at Heir to Blair on a regular basis. But a lot can happen in a year. Though I managed to lose a bit of weight for our trip to Mexico last year, I am sad to report that I gained it all, plus some, back.

I blame it on a lot of things.

Like my husband who loves me and tells me I'm a hot piece of ass everyday, even when I've stuffed myself and done nothing but sit on the couch all day. I want to call him an enabler, but I really can't fault him for his undying love for me. That just seems wrong.

Then there is my High School Poms sweatshirt that still fits me...loosely. I know the thing has magical powers considering the jeans I wore back then wouldn't even fit on one leg. I know. I tried. But it's so hard to tell myself  to lose weight when I can ration that I still fit in clothes I wore in High School.

And of course there is my love of food. Because to me there are indeed things that taste better than skinny feels. I used to be skinny, and it felt great. But a Lou Malnati's pizza tastes WAY better.

So I'm a classic case of personwhoisfatcausesheblameseveryoneelseanddoesnttakeresponsibilityforherself.
There I said it.
Isn't admitting it step one??

I could probably list a billion more reasons why it is damn near impossible for me to lose some weight, but enough is enough. I'm going to need to make some changes and since support is the key to a successful change I'm linking back up to McFatty Monday.

I just realized that I am going to San Diego in less than a month and I am not at all where I'd like to be weight wise. As much as I'd love to resort to some sort of crash diet to shed some weight quickly, I'm going to do this right. So I'm taking baby steps. This weeks goal is to get active for 30 minutes everyday. Whether I'm doing a fitness DVD, running with my little guy, walking on the treadmill, etc. I am aiming to have 30 minutes of exercise everyday. Weekends included.

I'll log my progress and report back next week!

I totally think dance parties with kids are the best, BTW. Just saying.

The hardest part is getting started. You can do it!

Poms? You were a pom? I love it!!!

Good for you! Chasing the little one can be the best exercise, and fun of course.
