I spent most of October and November stressing about my weight but not doing much. Things always seemed to get in the way. Migraines, colds, work, doc appts, chores..etc.
Why do I always have something getting in the way?
I started out December with a one day detox. It should have been longer but I also found out this month I am a bit of a wuss when it comes to cleanses. "It was a rough day" is an understatement.
The next day toxins must have left my body and brain because I was thinking a lot clearer. I had an epiphany! I realized that I felt a lack of balance in my approach. I want be healthy and lose weight but I also want to do it in a way that makes sense to me. So many people have lost weight and kept it off without having to feel like crap to do so. They didn't have to go to extremes and live so rigidly for the rest of their lives. While I understand the importance of healthy eating and staying at an adequate weight I want to do so without making food my entire focus or life. I just want this to be something I overcome and then go about my life. I also want to make it as fun as possible. So involving my family and coming up with interesting new recipes. Also I don't want to fall into the whole 'things having to be organic, no sugar, no salt, no preservatives ever' way of thinking. We live in an imperfect world where our food is imperfect too. I want to make the best of it to MY STANDARDS. And its ok to have my own standards of what is good. I'm a rational, thinking person. I should be able to make rules for myself for what works and doesn't work in my diet. I am intending to do just that. Anyways that's my mini rant/vent/introspective thoughts!
Have a wonderful day!
