The sun is out today. The temp is a balmy 80 degrees with a feels-like temp of 83. Thanks to the heavy rains yesterday we are dripping with humidity. This is the beginning of Summer for us here in my neck of the woods. From now until November it will be hot and humid and sticky. Last night while I was out back with the dogs, mosquitoes were swarming around my legs. Those things make life outdoors miserable. I don't like spraying myself with Off! or Deep Woods, but I usually have to. Any one have a good organic alternative that works to keep the little blood-suckers away?
I watched Biggest Loser last night and I have to say that I love all the contestants and don't care who wins the big prize. I'm just so proud for all of them that they have lost so much weight! I get so motivated while I'm watching the show. Lately I just can't get my meals planned. I don't really know why I can't get it together. I want to get serious about my weight loss again but I just keep eating without thinking. I've slowly started to eat more sweets and that is a real disaster for me. Once sugar gets to be a daily occurrence for me I have a very hard time cutting it back out. Just the thought of not having something sweet right now makes me depressed. Food has gotten a hold of me again.
Friday is May 1st and I want to get back on track. I don't want to spend another summer is this heavy body of mine. So I'm planning menus and going shopping this week to get stocked up with the foods I need to attack and succeed.
Planning is everything. Motivation is key. Exercise is never wasted. Water is life!
