Finding new motivation

Wednesday, June 06, 2012

I've not been consistent, yet again. Well, I have, but my choices have been consistently unhealthy, to the point that I've pretty much regained all the weight I lost before. That is depressing. I am working on getting out of that pattern now, and finding new knowledge to help me do it. I am starting to learn more about where my food comes from, and what too much of it is really doing to my health.

I have gotten a list of documentaries together by asking my lovely sparkfolks, after watching Food, Inc. earlier this week. Also got a bunch of book recommendations too, so I am looking forward to learning more and more. A lot of this information seems to be very disheartening, but I am trying to look at it as arming myself to fight my old ways. Since there are so many hours of "films" I now want to watch, I've made a deal with myself. I can watch docs off my list only after I do my exercise for the day. I think that will help get me motivated, since I'm so interested in learning more right now. If you are interested in any of the docs / books, here is the link to the thread with a big list:

I'd love any additional info, books/docs you might have liked to help you get or keep going on this healthy life journey!

    I just watched Food, Inc. too a couple weeks ago, and it has completely changed how I look at food now in so many ways and how I buy food and what I eat.

    there's also nothing wrong with doing your exercise (depending on what you do) while you're watching the docs. might help keep you motivated :) try not to get yourself down - you're here, and that's a great step!
