I’ve decided that my ancestors must have been bears. When the cold weather hits you can find me rifling through the cupboards looking for any food that is available for immediate consumption. I move as little as possible (to conserve my energy, of course) and all I wish for is to be cozy and warm and asleep. I am in hibernation mode and I am having a tough time combatting it. After all, I am fighting my innate instincts.
These behaviors are not good for someone that is trying to stay in shape. I’ve noticed my ‘get-up-and-go’ is gone. So I’m taking baby steps to get it back. This week I’m focusing on drinking lots of water and getting 10,000 steps a day. I’ve noticed already that all the water intake is curbing my need to eat incessantly. I’m hoping by next week this will become a habit and I will easily be able to make another healthy change!
