I can’t believe its been six weeks since I started my first round of Game On!!! Where did that time go?? Anyway, I thought I should give an update / report.
I’m sorry to say that, in the end, I really feel like it made zero difference. I suppose the fact that life here was turned sideways by the fires has something to do with that. Its difficult to focus on healthy eating, exercise, making new habits, letting go of old habits, drinking enough water and sleeping enough when the county is on fire (not literally the entire county but that’s what it felt like some days), people are losing their homes and livelihoods, my Mom is living with us, and I have extra dogs running around – all because of fires.
And then, October 1 rolled around which means I get to eat these:
I really, really love candy corn. And its only allowed in our house during the month of October (even if its in stores earlier). I’m one of those “OHAAT” people . . . “One Holiday At A Time”!!!!! So, since I only have 31 days of candy corn, I have to get my entire years’ worth in.
And then, all that Halloween candy comes home!!!
Have I mentioned that I really like sugar?? My kids have Halloween candy from last year left over!!! So they certainly don’t notice if a piece or two or three (or four) are gone each day.
With all of that being said, I’m starting a new round of Game On tomorrow. I’m certainly not feeling geared up for it, motivated, or anything else. But I’m going to give it a go nonetheless. Hopefully, the next five weeks will be calm and smooth and, this time around, I’ll actually make some new healthy habits. Or at least lose a couple of pounds. Or at least decrease my candy consumption to one or two pieces a day. I’m hoping for all of those things. But I know its going to take more than simple “hope”.
