Day Forty…

Thank you to everyone for all the support and love. This was a cool message to get…

Full confession, some of those likes are my own because (especially when I was starting out)I see it as a kind of positive self-talk.  Kindness counts and it meant to be given freely and generously so why not lavish it on yourself?

Saturday is my day to see if I make Lifetime and I’m starting to get a little nervous that it may not happen. I hope I’m wrong because I would really love to make this goal right out of the gate. That would be great, plus it would be awesome to (finally) sit in a free seat.  In the scheme of things, the more important part of this is that I am learning how to live my life in a healthy way.

Yes, you can do this and so can I.

 

Day Three Hundred Fifty-Six…

I was busy all day, didn’t think about food once. Until I was starving!  Totally internal hunger. Here are the signs  It had been hours since I last ate. I would’ve been happy with any food. I had a bit of a headache. That hasn’t happened in a while, so now that things are ramping up with work  I’m going to have to be vigilant with packing food to grab and go if I need it.

External:Internal Hunger

I notice that the people who are the most successful are those who plan ahead. They food shop with a plan. The store food very intentionally, like writing out the Smartpoints values on servings, and having cut up foods on hand. Planning is just another way to be strategic

I think it might be time to clean out my refrigerator and consider preparing menus for myself. That may be a nice way to support my efforts. I am so close to goal I might even get there in September. I realize that there is not going to be some monumental shift in my reality when I finally reach “GOAL”!  However, I will have the satisfaction of achieving something I desperately wanted for a long time.  I can say, I did it and that’s a big deal to me.

DAY 25: Seek out alone time—read a book or practice yoga or meditation.

Alone time is important, it allows for quiet focus in an extremely busy world. Perhaps that is one of the reasons why blogging is so meaningful to me.  Writing gives permission to reflect on how it’s going, I can think through my choices, and set goals for the future. So, say yes to seeking out alone time because it helps with the journey!
