A Routine That Needs to Change

Routines are good for families, but what do you do when the routine you have becomes a problem in your life? That’s what we’re going through right now.

You see, every other Friday we go grocery shopping. Now that’s not the routine we need to break. LOL The problem is dinner on that Friday. We general go grocery shopping as soon as Kevin gets off work and then we catch something out after we’re done.

Since Weight Watcher’s changed their plans, we need to cut back on the carbs we take in each day. So this means it’s almost impossible to go out to eat anymore. So we need to figure out what to do to make it work for dinner on those days when we go grocery shopping.

So what are the options we have? Well we could eat before we go shopping, but that puts us getting a late start on the shopping that already takes an hour and a half to two hours to complete. Another option is to eat after we’re done, but that puts us eating late and that’s not good either. So what other option do we have? Well we could change the day we shop to Saturday and then we wouldn’t be affected any longer.

So the thinking begins. Tomorrow is the big day so we must decide before the evening arrives so we know what the plan is for the evening and the weekend. I know we can make it work no matter what route we decide to take.

Diet’s are Hard, but Worth It

It’s really difficult getting back on a diet after you’ve been off of it for a little while, but it can be done if you set your mind to it. This is where we’re at right now. We basically went off of the Weight Watcher’s diet right before we went to Hawaii. Needless to say that was a bad thing.

We both put weight on and that’s not what we wanted to have happen. Now we’re back on track, but it’s difficult. Working out is hard to do and seeing where we were before makes it even more difficult.

We’re including the boys in what we do and that’s been good as well. They do the workouts on the Wii and enjoy it. They also eat the same foods as us. This will help them to stay fit right along side of us, so it’s all good.

So here’s to another week, full of food that’s good for us and exercise that gives us more energy and helps us lose weight. Let’s do it!!
