War on CHUB!!!

So me and chub....I guess the correct term is Chub and I?
We're tight....we've been through the thick and thin, the up and down, the brownie and the salad.
We've grown close.
We've GROWN together.

But you know what? I'm going to try and break up....we've had our times this past year....there have been losses. Slow and steady.
There have been things that I've had to let go of.
The saying everything in moderation including moderation has come into play.
There has been an increase in physical activity.
Playlists enthusiastically titled "jogtunes" and "tunes that move".
Yoga, lots of yoga.

But you know what? Chub is not intimidated by yoga, moderation or hopeful playlists.
It knows that deep down if i'm not focused enough to keep track of everything I eat we will stay together. It knows that I will keep enjoying the empty calories and luscious caffiene of soda. And that Jeopardy usually trumps a brisk walk around the block. (I do love me some jeopardy. Alec I love you!)

So I start this week....feeling more committed.

I'm making new friends...like The Daily Plate We're getting tight.
New friends like my runners.
Old friends like salad.
Water has been with me all along...trusty old friend. When i'm thirsty and tired....always there.
Awesome friends like the girls over at Angie In Shape they are ROCKIN IT!!

Love this quote they posted:
"Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, 'I will try again tomorrow.'"
- Mary Anne Radmacher
So I guess this is the start of something. I am thinking that this time i'm coming in stronger, more committed, more angry and more ready to kick chub to the curb. Anyone with me?

Hey Amy, I am totally with you. This is Elise by the way from the lost city of Coolidge. I recently found you and E's blog and have been inspired. Anyway I need to get rid of 40-50 lbs of chub and it is to bloody hot here at the moment for physical anything.....well that's my excuse anyway. Keep up ideas and I will let you know if I can think of anything clever...

What a great post. Chub and I have a similar relationship. Weight Watchers helped us break up but lately Chub has been trying to sneak back into my life and has started to succeed. Here's to each day being a new beginning!

And thank you for stopping by on my blog today.
