Question of the week #13
I did not do a question last week…I need more so please send them my way through the link on my blog. I have been a question a week in the WSJ. They are all based on the start-up business. The question this week has zero to do with the start-up world. Here it is:
How the heck do you stay so trim and
fit when you eat out like this so often? It's just mind-boggling to me
and every time I read one of these blogs, I think, "how does she do it?
This past week I had my annual physical. I have weighed the same thing every year for the past 4 years. It made me laugh because I am dieting daily so I guess it is working. That is probably the key. I always want to lose 10 lbs. I believe that is part of my annual New Years resolution. I am not a thin long legged girl but a short stocky girl…and that is not something that can be changed. I have come to terms with it.
So how do I not weigh 300 lbs? I exercise but not like a crazy person. I hurt myself a year ago so twice a week I do boring isometric type exercises for an hour. At the end of the day it all comes down to what you put in your mouth. Not always but I do try and make the right decisions when ordering at a restaurant and cooking dinner. I don't order pasta, I don't order dessert, I don't eat the bread, I don't order the saucy rich dish, etc. I might take a bite of someones dish but I don't eat it myself. When I desire something I eat it but most times I just stick to three meals a day, no snacks except for fruit and the ever ending desire to stop when I'm full. If it wasn't for the alcohol consumption which I do nightly I'd probably lose that 10 lbs but that goes under the life is too short title.
