Always On My Mind

Thursday, January 20, 2011

Well, it seems the one thing that's always on my mind is food. When I was eating whatever I wanted it was what snack or sweets could I have next. Now, that I'm making the change to eat healthy & lose weight I'm always thinking what can I eat next that's healthy etc.
It's like the devil on 1 shoulder and the angel on the other. Constantly fighting the demons day in and day out especially the past couple of days. The past couple of days I felt the temptations and the little red guy with horns on his head whispering in my year. It took alot of willpower and again thinking about food. Thinking how I don't want to give in and that I want success. Thinking about not giving into the food temptations and not eating. The temptations have passed and today feels like a new day. I got up this morning and exercised. I can honestly say I'm not feeling the urges to eat poorly today. I feel good like I jumped over a hurdle without tripping and falling on my face.
I'm not gonna feel sorry for myself and keep my goals in focus. I guess for someone like me food will always be on my mind. It has to be. It's what I do about it that matters. I have to learn to eat to live and not live to eat and not to fear food (well, the good food).
As for the little red guy with the horns on his head~I flicked him off my shoulder and dismissed him. He was weighing me down!

    Yes, I know he's not gone forever. But, right now I think he's the one afraid. LOL..He hasn't been around.

    WOW, I thought for a minute I was reading something 'I' had written! I too for decades, have fought off that little red horned creature. There are days I still do, so don't think he leaves for good, EVER. He hangs around & smells fear. Just keep reminding him who's boss.

    I feel the same way! Working out really helps and makes me think of all the hard work I put into it and if whatever food I am dreaming or even thinking of is really worth it. Stay focused and know that you can do this :)
