My, oh my, give me five! Five months, that is. Happy May 1st....May Day! Remember when it was just January 1st? I do. Every year as we get older, we all say, "Hasn't the year gone by so fast?"
I'm not a mathematician, but it seems to me in this period of time, you have eaten about 120 breakfasts, 120 lunches, and 120 dinners. You've snacked at the movies or another event about 5 to 15 times and snacked at work or home 150 times! If you drank a cola or a diet cola every day, you've had 120 of them so far. That's 20 six packs! If you just had one slice of bacon for breakfast every other day, you have eaten 60 strips of bacon. Depending on how it's sliced, thats about 4 to 6 pounds of bacon!
In this amount of time, if you ate an extra 100 calories a day, you would have had 12,000 extra calories, and that means you would have gained three-and-a-half pounds. The math can go on and on, but I think you know what I'm getting at. Are you on plan with the food thing yet?
If you had done 10 pushups a day, you would have done 1200 pushups. If you'd have done 20 minutes of aerobics each day, you would have done 2400 minutes of aerobics! If you would have walked a half a mile a day, you would have walked 60 miles, and I think maybe some of you would be into a different state! LOL Are you on plan with the exercise?
If you had thought 3 negative thoughts per day, you would have accumulated 360 negative thoughts so far. Are you on plan mentally?
Now you know I had a most wonderful time on my cruises. But every morning when I walked through the dining room and every afternoon and evening, on every cruise, I saw inappropriate foods and outrageous portions on the plates of some of my cruisers. I saw Baked Alaska flying and chocolate and vanilla ice cream. I also saw champagne, wine, and Bloody Marys on tables and fried foods where people were supposed to be watching what they were eating and drinking all week, but what can I do? Just be a good example, and I know I did that! What would I see if I walked by YOUR table?
If you would have lost a pound-and-a-half a week so far this year, you would have lost 25 pounds! That means if you were 200, you'd now be at 175. If you were 160, you'd now be at 135.
