I weigh 192.9.
Sigh. Hey, but at least I lost most of the weight I gained while in China, eh? I'm pretty much back to square one.
Square one is okay.
Couple of thoughts:
1. When Bob said on last week's show "How can I compete with a five dollar pizza?" he made me think. It's true. How can you compete with that?
This is why we are all so unhealthy and most of our country is fat. Fast and easy is the ultimate goal for most people (especially mothers), and that is also why our children are so unhealthy and fat.
Lately, I've been taking the time to make amazing food. Yesterday, I made pot stickers (with kale and mushrooms) and it took me some time. The homemade squash soup from Sunday? Time consuming. Not hours and hours and hours of time; just more than I'm used to. I used to throw some meat and veggies and starches into a casserole and throw it in the oven and call it good. So, this new lifestyle of taking the time to prepare fresh, whole, plant-based food is strange to me (and my kids!). It's harder, but the end result is much more rewarding! Yeah, the kids are whiny because it takes longer. Yeah, I keep giving the toddler (holy cow, he's a toddler!) grapes to distract him so I can cook. Yeah, the kids don't always adore what I make. I'm totally competing with the five dollar pizza.
But it's not going to win. Because my family is worth more than that. Way more.
2. Exercise is good. The end.
How did you do this week? What are your opinions about the 5 dollar pizza?
