I have been a Sparkpeople member for almost 5 years. I have learned a lot about nutrition, fitness, and my own unhealthy patterns in this time.

My key issues are emotional eating, consistency, and a lack of mindfulness. I have a long way to go, but I am learning to really love myself for me, at any size, along the way. I really want 2015 to be a productive and healthy year!

Little mini-challenge for you: Can you name 2 songs you can listen to the next time you need to brighten your mood?

Think about the music on your playlist and pick at least 2 songs that are proven mood-brighteners for you. They can be upbeat, slow-tempo, or anything in between . . . as long as they put a smile on your face! Keep them in mind for the next time you need a quick pick-me-up. Music has a proven effect on well-being! It can lift your mood, boost energy, and stimulate positive thinking. It can even help relax you at the end of a long day or during a stressful situation. emoticon

Food-for-thought this week:

Diets have a start and a finish, but a lifestyle change will last forever. Imagine yourself where you want to be, and that is where you will go. Being mindful about your eating can help you stay focused on your weight loss plan. As you eat, pay close attention to all your senses. Use your tongue to feel the texture of the food, gauge its temperature, and take a whiff of the aroma. Ask yourself if it is something that is really satisfying your taste buds. Every choice is yours to make!
