My Day 2- I Want to EXPERIENCE Life Instead of GOING Through Life!!

Friday, July 22, 2011

Hey Sparkers!

Today I feel really good. I overcame my "un-normal" thinking to eat a bowl of honey bunches of oats cereal last night. My mind had started saying go get a bowl of cereal b/c you normally do at night time. I had told myself that I had already had a slice of cake after dinner and that was going to be my only dessert for the night. I must stop abusing food, even if it's just a bowl of cereal. It's that way of thinking that has controlled most of my life.

I was very proud that I did not give into the food or excessive snacking like I normally do when I get home from work. Instead, I went online for a bit & then did some cooking. I know this is going to be a process but I am open to it & ready to learn how to LIVE my LIFE. I am happy that I have joined a local support group here, think it's the best thing I've done.

I went my first day yesterday without feeling "Stuffed from FOOD". It was a very nice feeling. I was happy to have a normal day of eating & without Cherishing Food. I am starting with my thinking, my mind this time instead of just focusing on a number on the scale b/c I am realizing that if I can understand what's going on in my mind then the chips of everything else will fall into place like the losing weight. I realized that my battle or struggle with food is more than just losing weight or the scale but it's actually in my MIND.

So right now I am focusing on the simple things I can do daily while I work on getting a new frame of mind. Instead of taking the elevator I am taking the steps (going down & up), walking during my two 15 minute break times, just small things I can begin.

1 Day At A Time!

My thoughts for today are:

    A couple of weeks ago I moved to the second floor at work. The stairs have been doing wonders helping reach my 10,000 steps a day. I have also noticed that I no longer am out of breath when I get to the top. Good luck to you! emoticon

    Congratulations on Day 1 - yes everyday should be day 1 because we all are fully committed on Day 1 of every journey, I find that my commitment goes down a little bit each day. So let it be Day 1 each day.

Do they discuss you should look at food as Fuel. It is not comfort, it is not pleasure, it is simply fuel to allow your body to move?

    emoticon I just kept thinking small changes. Those I could do and 10 minutes of exercise. 10 minutes is a blink. As you do those, they will start to add up and as your body and mind feel better, you will do more. This is a lifelong journey so each day we have choices and each day we can make better choices. One day doesn't make it or break it. It is a pattern. I was attracted to your title. I agree it is never too late to feel good and live life. Here's to your life of feeling great!
