A New Tumbling


I haven’t posted a Tumbing in awhile. This one is right off the cuff, very little editing.

I weighed myself yesterday. Usually, I only allow myself to be weighed when I go to the doctor’s office. But, I’ve been diligently working on my healthy habits for a little over a month, and I wanted to see if the progress I felt was real.

First, I’ll tell you that according to the scale at the fitness center I lost six pounds. Suspicions confirmed!

Second, I’ll tell you what I’ve been doing in case it will help you. There are three, no four, important reasons for the progress I’m experiencing.

  1. I started exercising at least 5 days out of 7.
  2. I track my calories in and calories out with the myfitnesspal app.
  3. I eat 16 oz of veggies and 4 oz of protein (2 oz if it’s hard cheese) at lunch and dinner, most days.
  4. I make sure to include treats every day.

That’s it. All four of these health practices are ones I’ve had success with in the past. I don’t feel restricted. I do feel like this is right for me and that I can maintain these habits for a long time.

The key is that I’ve figured out that these health habits work  for ME. Whenever I get off track, they help me get back to where I want to be.

I am a writer and a pretty good cook. I overuse exclamation points and dark chocolate. I LOVE God and my family the most! I know from experience that life goes much better when we help each other. I'm writing a book about becoming your best self. I think of it as one of many ways I can help others and be helped by them.
