I’m sort of glad that we didn’t find ourselves on the road over the long weekend. In years past,when Memorial Day weekend came, we would navigate the congested parkways of New York and juggle a couple of destinations. This year we were more than happy to spend the weekend at home.
I’m certain that if we accepted some invites for the customary parties, it would have been that easy for me to get into binge eating again. It’s so hard to resist party foods. What I’m trying to avoid now is to waste my effort on trying to eat healthier. I do fall off the wagon once in a while but at least I try to limit the frequency. Never mind the fact that nowadays it is easy to get my hands on top rated diet pills because to me, it is not about dieting. If you have a pre-existing condition (hypertension) like me, dieting only comes second.
I believe that I’m healthier now more than ever. I exercise and do weight training. I try so hard to watch what I eat. All of which, I never did when I was younger. Exercise then to me was totally alien in my vocabulary. I admit that there are days when I drag myself to get to the gym and/or get on the fitness disc and lift weights, but I don’t stop pushing myself. Now that warmer days are here, I should have no excuse not going down to our gym. The past months, I didn’t care to go because donning a jacket and what not over my workout outfit was not appealing to me.
My hibernation mood and mode is finally over.
