Okay, the scale is not making me happy so I'm looking at other positives. I am choosing to learn a new hobby. So, I think my start at a healthy journey is giving me the" umph" to start something new. That is a positive.

Okay, the government guideline of using a 9 inch plate divided into the sections, 1/4 protein, 1/4 carbs, 1/2 veggies and fruit along with a dairy, makes sense. I'm going to try that this week.

As I can see from my last blog which was in March, I have been unfocused on my healthy journey for awhile. It is time to focus. My ah-ha movement was in a casino with my husband in Reno, visiting my daughter and her husband, and I was going up an escalator which had mirrors traversing the whole length. When I looked in the mirror and did a double take, I said to myself, that's me, where is Joyce? My face was... not me; my body was... not me. I want to find 'Joyce' again. So, I am going to try the coaching which is really just going back to the beginning of the SparkPeople program.
So, my fast breaks for this week:
1) track my food, not limiting my food but tracking whatever goes in my mouth
2) Exercise for 10 minutes... just 10 minutes... I can do this!
3) Read and take to heart inspirational words each day
Okay, I should be successful. It's about time I feel some success again in my personal life. Being retired means I am not getting the 'kudos' I got within the teaching environment. Now I have to create my own 'kudos' moments, hence, the fast break goals.

Okay, I have been thinking and rereading my reasons to lose weight and get healthier. Well, to enjoy life more... Blah, blah. blah. Then I have something about having more energy, blah, blah, blah. To be around for my family, blah, blah, blah. My reasons seem like blah, blah, blah to me. They sound like platitudes. The reasons don't hit me in my soul. They seem to be said by someone else, not me. So, when I try to think about why, really why I want to be a healthier me... I'm at a dead end. I can just spit out platitudes. I need a lot more thinking. Maybe a therapist??? LOL
