I am so excited to start another month!!! This is very exciting. I am going to be participating in three challenges this month. I am a member of the DONE girls team and I am finishing the Shamrock challenge, I am beginning the SASS challenge, and I am signing up for a Biggest Loser challenge at work!!
I am so excited to have the time to invest in my health. This is my priority!!! I am feeling so motivated right now. I have to figure out how to protect my motivation and not sabotage myself, my will power, my efforts, and to start seeing viable results from my journey. I know I am becoming healther I can feel it....I am hoping the weight will begin shedding off of me too, and I will be able to enjoy being in my own skin this summer time.
I am realizing that I am an emotional eater, and I eat out of different emotions. When I feel certain ways, I find that my eating patterns change. I also tend to be a binge eater, but I think these episodes happen for different reasons and the damage the episodes leave behind are from different emotions.
I am learning that if I plan and keep a plan and a schedule and a process in place, that I am less apt to cheat or eat mindlessly. There are times I will be in such a fog that I will eat and not realize I am eating until I snap out of it later. Now, I am finding that I am conscious, and I am finding myself accountable and there have been times that I have eaten what I shouldn't, but I write it down. I have to log that I have eaten it.
I am able to measure out my food - everything except my meat because I haven't been able to successfully weigh my meat that I eat. I need to get a scale to help myself be accountable to myself here. I think I have a mistaken perception of what a portion is when it comes to meat.
So as I surround myself with positive motivations, I am finding that my desire to do well is increasing. I have also started to add some suppotive foods and drinks from Isogenix into my diet. I have been drinking an energy drink that has allowed me to have more clarity of mind, and an increase in energy to want to be more active. I have also been substituting some of my meals with a shake and that has been a nice change too. I have another group of supporters from this community as well assisting me in my journey. Where Isogenix isn't necessarily a weight loss plan, it aids the body in operating more efficiently and that will have a side effect of weight loss.
So here is to a successful month - this is my month of preparation, as I continue to make lifestyle changes that are going to be beneficial to my process and my journey!!!!
