Here we go again! Today I went grocery shopping and bought myself lean cuisines/ healthy choice meals and crackers/ pretzels for snacks. I am starting to get back on track in the food area. I am only eating lean cuisines to get going with better eating habits. I like them because they teach me portion control as well as being lower in calorie than the other choices I would be making at this point. Once I train my brain and stomach to be satisfied after a lean cuisine I will then start prepare my own food. I will then be able to trust myself enough to ration serving sizes and calorie count. It's a baby step but at least it's a step in the right direction! It worked well for me in the past so here goes nothing!
We still have some green here in the upper peninsula of Michigan. I hope we don't get snow as early as we did last year. I remember last year there was snow on the ground at our Halloween party! It can hold off a little longer because we are finally able to get our roof re-done and I am hoping we can do it before the snow hits. I am not a cold weather chick AT ALL! I always ask myself why I still live somewhere where the winters can be horrendous. I just can't seem to break the force field that holds me here LOL - Someday I will get away!
I have been keeping up with my workout routine and from here on out I will not settle for anything less than RESULTS! Success is a combination of many things. I have to get the potion in motion and set the ingredients just right. I always like to think of my body as a car. You wouldn't go and put sugar in your gas tank now would you? LOL!
Like I have said many times; I know what needs to be done I just need to do it to it! I know I will feel a million times better. I have been so stressed out lately and I have finally put my finger on it. I have not been happy with ME. My discouragement has taken over and is affecting my day to day life. It has put a damper on many things I used to enjoy and UN-motivates me to motivate myself. I need to quiet my inner critic and move forward confidently and positively.
It is time for things to change.
MIND, BODY & SOUL!
