- Wedding: December 2011
So looking at my wedding pictures being the fattest I have ever been in my entire life makes me sad. Like a lot. I know that in the next few years (well like 5) we will want to start trying for a kid or two. And I really want to not be the person you can tell if its belly fat or a baby. So, mostly for my health (I destroyed my knees playing high intensity sports for 12 years and now being over-weight makes them hurt, ALL THE TIME) I need to get my act together and get healthy. But the issue is, I am a nursing student (high stress, little free time) and LOVE to cook, and cook like Paula Deen. Or we eat junk because DHs job requires early mornings and I have class and work all day. So I need a solution that doesn’t involve hours and hours in a gym because I don’t have them and also doesn’t totally bar all my favorite foods. I realize I sometimes just eat so much junk (like literally make cake batter just to eat… not to make cake) because I have kind of given up on being fit.
But that isn’t okay. I WAS fit, but it was because I ate like a bird and was working out 6 hours a day in HS basketball. I need a solution that works for this stage of life. I would love something I can do at home, but not something that is going to just make my knees hurt worse, I have heard wonderful things about Jillian Michaels but with the bending and lunging, the poor cartilege of my knees that is already getting ground away due to the old injuries won’t be helped.
Low impact? But still doing some good. Does such a workout that one can do at home exsist??
And as far as eating and stuff, is weight watchers worth it? I mean, I know it is bad but my self control is about |—| much. I need a way to make food that still tastes good but is healthier than the amount of pasta and red meat I so love. I tried a little at myfitness pals but it was so hard to figure out the food stuff for me, maybe I should give it another shot but I just know SOMETHING has to change. I stepped on a scale today and discovered in the last 3ish years I have gained like 60 pounds. BLECK.
