Freakin a little

  • Hello -

    I need to be more fit dammit and I need help. I am not disciplined enough to motivate myself. I am incredibly poor at taking care of myself and putting myself in front of others.

    Freaking out a little...turning 40 in 5 months. Need to kick it in gear. I want to be fabu at 40 not frumpy. I need to walk to talk now. I am tired of saying I don't have the time. I am a big believer in people make time for what they "want" to make time for and I want this.

    Does this group share meal advice? Is there a weekly check in where we can share what we did to improve ourselves during the week?

  • I haven't seen meal advice as a subject here but I think it sounds like a GREAT subject! I'm terrible at making healthy food choices. I always, always, always go for what is easy. I'm trying to eat more salads with my meals as well as fruit.

    Wonder if anyone else has any suggestions for eating healthy AND convenient foods?

  • Hi there!

    I would LOVE to hear of some healthy, yet quick and easy meals (that kids like!!). I am also nearing that big 40 and am still trying to shed baby weight...its the last 10 pounds that I just cannot seem to kick!

    I did find that by just cutting out ANY "in between" meal snacks helped me a lot...but then I hit another I have to try harder again...yuck!
