You would think that since I haven't written any posts for this blog in, well, forever... that I have been busy living well and being healthy and losing weight, right?
Well, you would think wrong if you did.
Nope, I have been busy being the BusyMom, CEO and chauffer and cook and housekeeper to TheBusyFamily instead.
I was running for an hour a day in my backyard pool until... the horrible weather started.
It began with a little storm called Hurricane Irene... that led to the 40 days and 40 nights of rain... and I mean rain that fell to the tune of over an inch an hour at times.
Our backyard became a pond from the overflow of the swamp and stream at the edge of our property.
All we needed was to throw in a few fish and we would instantly have been eligible to claim waterfront property status... I swear it really was that bad.
I tried to do some home dvd workouts but... they are lonely and no where near as fun as running in the pool. And much harder for me to do since my joints just hate solid ground... that daggone knee pops out at the darndest times!
So, instead I have been running kids here and there, trying to keep up with the never ending cycle of housework and get some writing done...
Eating right and getting healthy have not been a priority, but then, perhaps that is the underlying problem, no?
I need to put myself first, for a change, and do what I need to do for me to be healthier and feel better in my body... after all, it is the only one I'm gonna get...
Especially since Cher shows no signs of dying and donating hers to me any time soon....
So, I am going to start on the NEW South Beach diet plan.
I read about it in this week's Woman's World magazine.
I'll let you know how it goes in a few days... or once I get to the grocery to stock up on the food required for the beginner's menu.
So.. for now I have to report... no weight loss ... but hopefully that won't be the case for long!
