What the heck is going on here? i just had a salad for my afternoon snack, followed by a handful of pistachios. A salad? who me?! Where did the real Lori go? OH, maybe this new Lori will become the new real Lori.
The last 4 weeks or so I have given in to buying more sweet junk food. I have done pretty well at limiting myself to 1 sweet treat a day until the last few weeks. At Hallmark we were selling valentine's day candy. I didn't struggle this year with sweets or pie from Thanksgiving through the new year, but once the valentine candy came out I was not doing so well. I kept my calories in check, but I substituted the healthy snacks with sugar. I haven't gained weight, but I just know this could lead to problems in that area and I've decided to get back to my 1 treat a day routine. This usually works for me.
I finally made the decision to move on from stage 3 to stage 4, and this is giving me new resolve to tighten up my reigns on goals that i had set before and of course, now I am setting some additional goals. I haven't developed them yet, since I just changed stages yesterday. Today I spent time in the Spark (book) to see what week 4 looked like. I think that is similar to the content of stage 4, if I'm not mistaken. I did start my list of 50-100 goals of things I want to do in my lifetime. I guess that's what a bucket list is. I've never written one down before. So far I have 23 things listed.
Any one have any insights or advice for me going into this next stage of my life? I want to make the most of this newfound commitment to myself to continue on my journey.
