Can you believe August is almost over!!??!!
I'm happy to report I've maintained my weight for 6 months and am actually a pound under my goal! It's not been easy I can tell you that!! Every day.......all of us are faced with choices, not only what we are going to eat, but when or if we are going to get that exercise in? Of course, there are other choices we have to make as well.......like calling or not calling that old friend, your mom, your dad, your daughter, your son!! Choices abound daily from getting out of bed or staying in!! A friend saw my painted toe nails the other day and said, I don't have time to paint mine, and I said, I don't either, but I make the time. Let's face it.......WE DO HAVE THE TIME to do what we really REALLY want to do!! It's all about choices!!!
Getting back to the choices of what to eat.....veggies or chips? Which one is going to give you good results??!! This is the question I try to ask myself when I think about grabbing something I know is not really going to benefit me, but sabotage all my efforts! If you can portion out a small amount of chips or ice cream, then that's not the problem and you can "go for it", but if you're like me with some of the red light foods, they need to be out of the house and one is cashews!! They just call my name, so I do not buy them, and another one is Reese's peanut butter cups!! I feel like I cannot buy a bag of those, but if I really want one, then I will buy ONE.........NOT a bag!! Again, it is about the choices we make every day. Remember, they all have consequences!!
I am wishing you all a very healthy and GREAT choices day.......in all!!
