here it is, the end of february. by now, most everyone's new years resolutions are shot all to hell. i know mine are. i had hoped this would be the year i finally ate right and got healthy. i have been trying! i've been doing all those things the experts tell us to do, such as:
1.) EXERCISE- i have heard a lot about the "wii" system and how great it is for families to get more exercise. well, we have a wii. it's connected to our t.v., we have the balance board and everything. i've done all the exhausting set up, but i have failed to lose even a pound! i don't understand it.
2.) DRINK MORE MILK- ok, this one was easy! i love milk! i have milk with my cookies. milk with my cake. milk with my candy bar. and ice cream has milk as well. but, again, i have failed to lose a pound! i'm stumped.
3.) EAT MORE FRUIT- again, an easy one, i love fruit. apples and peaches make great pies. i make sure to have mine with whipped cream, because cream is from milk and i know how important milk is. blueberries make a delicious cobbler, and served with vanilla ice cream, you are also getting that important calcium! but, once again, no weight lost.
4.) EAT CHOCOLATE- ok, call me crazy, but is this not the BEST thing to happen since sliced bread?! we are now given permission to eat chocolate- must get those antioxidants! i have dutifully eaten chocolate every day but i don't see any drop in my weight.
i have followed all this expert advice, yet there has been no improvement. in fact, i may have gained some weight, hard as that might be to believe! maybe i just haven't given it enough time. i 'll be patient and keep doing all the "right" things. surely i'll see a change by spring!
