Happy New YearWe had a wonderful, safe new year and hope you had the same.
I did overeat, and over eat the dairy, which brings me to an "update" about what my body has been doing the past few months.
Like so many Americans, I over eat. I over eat on healthier stuff than most- but I am way overweight.
However, this fall I started noticing that I was getting heartburn- often severe- if I ate at night. I first cut out nighttime snacks and when that didn't work, I tried starting in on the seconds of supper. I say tried because it works when I do it, but it's a struggle. Other things have been kicking my butt- dairy, too much sugar, alcohol drunk with any suger, or more than a single serving of aclohol. While listening to my body in these matters is hard, hard, hard, I feel it's a blessing!
I have also started exercising, and sticking with it! I am doing aerobics almost every morning ( unless I have to get out of the house early) and I keep hand weights around for when I am idle or my back hurts. Nothing helps my backaches more, especially since they are due to poor posture.
And the latest development- I have not been able to finish the last three coffe drinks I got from Starbucks, either soy or cow. I think I'll use the extra money for lead free makeup.
I have lost 12 pounds so far, and my "resolution" is to really cut out the dairy, be even better about avoiding seconds, and exercise even during my period.
