It's not even Noon yet (but it will be once I get this posted) and I already have my workout in! You all know that is very rare for me lol. I had my lemon water first thing and then made a breakfast sandwich. I am on my 3rd cup of green tea and have a ways to go yet on my water jug. I am about to make a pita pizza for lunch and am thinking on making some boiled cod with a baked sweet potato for dinner.
Michael has had a nasty cold these past few days and I have been feeling a little one coming on myself. I hope it's nothing and my runny nose/sneezes go away. I don't feel anywhere near sick as he is. I KNOW that a big part in me not getting sick is drinking 75oz of water a day along with green tea, lemon water and my apple cider vinegar tablets. They all help! I have not been sick, sick since I have started my journey now that I think of it. (KNOCK ON WOOD!) - I remember when Michael had the flu really bad a couple months ago and I was sure I was going to get it but nope!
I have been so happy. Not just because I have lost 91 pounds but by also being positive! Positive thinking in EVERY aspect of your life is the way to go. No matter what it is, I have been flipping every negative thought into a positive one. Sometimes it's hard but you just have to force yourself to do it and move on. Instead of complaining (about anything OR anyone) I force myself to think positively and in doing so there leaves no room for any negative. It can only benefit you AND the people around you. If you can do that, happiness will come. It's so easy to get sucked down the road of self pity and jealousy. It's an ugly road and I have been down it before (who hasn't) and I can honestly say I don't miss it! Once you accept yourself and your life you will begin to see things much, MUCH clearer. One thing I had wrong in the begging was that I thought if I lost weight it would change everything. Like a miracle cure. I mean it has in a way but losing weight doesn't erase all of your problems. The way it has helped me is by letting me see things clearer. It has taken off the blindfold I have been wearing for so long and has helped me see things in a different light. I have been through a lot of self-reflection over these past 10 months and it sure has been a journey but I wouldn't change one bit of it. I feel I am a better person today and I can't wait to see what my future holds!
