I have a confession.
I have been eating badly.
I mean really badly.
Not just the junk food that I love (I've been eating that too) but I have been eating out as well. I have fallen off the wagon for the last couple of weeks.
Monday night, my in-laws took the kids out to dinner. What did I do? Did I go home and eat a sensible salad?
No I went out and gorged myself on steak, veggies and baked sweet potato from Outback. That’s not so bad I know. Did I mention the whole bloomin onion I ordered for myself? Or the south pacific peach martini? Did I mention that I ate a whole loaf of the dark bread slathered in honey butter?
Did I mentioned the food I got from Checkers(Rally's) the night before?
Did I mention food from our jaunt to IKEA to get new slats for my daughters bed? Those cinnamon buns are sugar crack.
Wednesday: My friends baby shower - lasagna, shrimp fried rice, fried dough balls, coleslaw, some stew type dish that was spicy, I refrained from the banana pudding and the cake. (oh, my lopsided diaper cake was a hit! My friend CW called it a leaning tower of poppers. I am not speaking to her for the rest of the week!)
Wednesday: Date night: Cup of crab soup and a massive amount of french fries smothered in cheese and bacon with sour cream on the side.
Did I mention the Taco Bell last night?
I have fallen off the wagon.
I will get back on.
I had a salad for lunch today.
I will keep on. My belly dancing DVD from Netflix has arrived. I never realized how many exercise DVD's they have in the catalog. I could realistically get a new one once a week and never get bored with them. Better than adding a gym membership right now.
I want to go to the gym. I was 'advised' by one of my super-fit co-workers that paying for the membership would motivate me. I doubt it.
I think I need to have the motivation to go everyday before I put money on it. That way I can be sure I won't be wasting money. If I go once workout once a week that is wasteful. To get my full money's worth I feel that I need to go at least four days or more a week.
Shouldn't I want to work out on the regular, first? Does this theory make since?
