Unfortunately, in the past couple of years, it has become much more difficult for me to walk either because it has been so incredibly hot or incredibly cold and inclement. When my kids were younger, I dropped them off at school and almost everyday went to breakfast with Moms. I'd have an all white omelette with cheese, whole wheat toast, and coffee. That was almost daily. I'd walk home from there about a mile. I was at my best fighting weight. Since my kids go to school on their own, there is not Mom's breakfast, and I am not walking home. So I am eating less (theoretically), maybe walking less during the height of the summer's heat and the winter's wind chill, and have gained weight.
I hate thinking about weight. Hate it. I don't own a scale so I only weigh myself at the doctor's. I started taking Tamoxifen two years ago, which has wreaked havoc on my weight. I am going to try to move my body daily, no matter what. I have to if I want to feel better again. Maybe when I stop taking the Tamoxifen, things will move back to where they belong. So, it isn't a New Year's resolution, it isn't even a day after Thanksgiving resolution. I have been thinking about it for awhile. Sometimes I feel if I think about it a lot, it's almost as good as doing it. It is a "I went to the doctor and got on the scale" resolution. This resolution is one day at a time, otherwise, I will absolutely fail. I will pat myself on the back for each day I do something. That's all I can do.
Sidebars: Surprised that a renowned producer, L.A. Reid, trashed a song for being too grown up for a teenager to sing on the X Factor when it was originally a Demi Lovato song. I thought he'd know that or ask first before he made such a national faux pas. Hope everyone survived Black Friday!
