I shouldn’t call it a “diet”. I hate that word. But, that’s sort of what it is. Yep, hubby and I are actually TRYING to drop some tonnage … and I mean we are truly trying. I used to combine diet and exercise and have actually had good success with it -but my bad hip (yes folks, it is truly a BAD hip) really restricts how much true aerobic exercise I can do. So, it’s time to watch our intake to preserve what joints we do have left! Our big deal is not only less food, but better food. Believe me, I do know what I ought to do. It’s the gumption to DO it! One glass of wine, not two. NO chips (my biggest weakness). Drink more water, even when you’re definitely not craving it. Oh yeah, I know what to do, but doing it – well that’s another thing. We’ll see how we do. Somehow, when your health and mobility could be at risk, motivation makes a reappearance! Motivation. It’s a good thing.
