Wow! I have not been on SP much except for logging food and exercise. I thought I would make a quick blog entry today...and realized that I have not done so since Christmas...which makes THIS my FIRST blog of 2011!
Well, in that case, happy new year and happy Chinese new year to all!
I'm still in OA...coming up on two years this April. I am still abstinent from compulsive eating and overeating...but have been struggling for several months...trying to tweak my food plan. I got into the bad habit of snacks and AFTER DINNER snacking...gained back a few pounds and was less "serene" around food.
I am now, however, back on track...ONE DAY AT A TIME. I am using my OA tools AND working with a registered dietitian who helped me realize I was not eating enough protein. I am making one healthy food choice at a time, a meal at a time, a day at a time.
Exercise-wise, from Dec thru Jan I was consistent with 5 to 6 days of some form of exercise, 30 minutes...then jumped it up to 60 minutes and got burned out. So, I am starting over (as of yesterday) but am taking it slow...No longer trying to be perfect or have the all or nothing attitude. I also recently bought kettlebells and DVDs and will incorporate them into the mix. Asked hubby for exercise DVDs instead of flowers for Valentine's Day (:
Lastly, I put the scale away (I'm a scale-o-holic used to years of DAILY weigh ins). I committed to my dietitian to only once a week weigh ins on Fridays.
Life is good. I am blessed and grateful. Turning it over all day, every day, to my Higher Power.
Hugs to all. Many blessings to you. Happy Valentine's Day.
