wading back into the pool...
Wednesday, October 19, 2011
So after being away from spark and letting myself go absolutely crazy with my eating... I learned this evening that it is best if I slowly walk myself back into this lifestyle change, instead of diving back in head first. I dont want this to just be another 'diet' I truly want this to be my norm. And it was for 4 months, then some terrible things happend in my life and I just let go... healthy eating was the least of my worries. But now that I can see clearly again, I feel that instead of beating myself up for missing the gym tonight and splurging on candy corn and more milk then I probably should have allowed myself... I'll rejoice in the fact that when my mom decided to go out to eat before Bible study, I got a salad... annnnd instead of pouring the salad dressing on I dipped my fork into the little cup and ended up eating less of the dressing than I normally would. At this point for me, its the little things that will keep me motivated and I'm thankful that I can remind myself & be okay with the fact that I am doing this to lice a healthier life in the long run, not just doing a hurry up and quickly lose weight diet.I do believe it gets easier with time... so I will take my smaller accomplishments and be happy with them as they come!!! Here is to a healthier life :)
