Entry 384: #Mind, #Body & #Soul
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!

Wow. Such determination! Isn't it funny when we finally realize it is ourselves that we have been fighting? That uneasy, uncomfortable, dissatisfied feeling stems from our own internal struggle ... and for what? Glad to hear you've moved past that silly brick wall that we all encounter at various points in our lives. Onward! Upward! Am sending up a prayer or several for fun and success for you. - Deb
