I know I have said this before but this time I feel like I mean it. I am tired of how I have been feeling lately.
Last year when I did the “Lose 20 lbs. in 6 weeks challenge” I felt very good. Sure, there were times I was exhausted and stressed out because I was falling behind my workouts but I couldn’t deny the confidence it gave me. I couldn’t deny how good I looked (and felt) when I weighed 160 lbs.
I want to get the confidence back. I want to feel all the good feelings that come from pushing yourself and being able to finish these boot camp classes. I desperately need it.
Lately, my world is filled with stress and I don’t have those past outlets that used to help me deal with these daily stresses. I need something and I think this could be one of them.
So, World, meet my new boyfriend – The Gym!
Oh yes, I could do this all week long. 😀 Too bad I can’t.
That’s me in a nutshell and what this blog will be about — eating, drinking (two of my favorite activities) and exercising (not one of my favorite activities) –striving for harmony.
Women and wine, in my opinion, it’s probably the closest and most fun relationship out there.
My affinity with wine is stable, strong and reliable.
Wine is always here to comfort me in the toughest of times and the most exciting of celebrations.
Whether you are drowning your sorrows from yet another miserable day at the office or celebrating your most recent promotion, you know exactly what you are doing at the end of the day — that’s right, cracking open (or twisting off the cap of) a fresh bottle of vino.
The same goes for my love affair for food. Good food is healthy food. Food is supposed to sustain you so you can live better, not so you can eat more but while in theory that makes sense to me I am not the type to want to eat to live. You could say that I live to eat but not for the reason you might think. I rather skip a meal or even starve for many hours than having to succumb myself to eating horrible tasting food.
Overindulging or not eating aren’t good things and I am going to try my hardest to overcome these shortcomings and strive to have a better relationship with food.
Moderation is the key!
