A Conversation with myself

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

As previously posted, I've been juggling a lot on my plate for several months, and the result is a 15 pound gain and feeling overwhelmed.

Yesterday as I drove to work, I was marveling at how much exercise I've been doing during this difficult time and giving myself a pat on the back. Side note here, that night I had 8.5 hours of sleep. Obvious correleation with what happened next.

And then the emoticon moment happened... I fully realized that a thin and fit body is mine if and when I return to eating for health and not emotion. Yes, a thin and fit body is in my control. It's my choice, my work, and my reward.

I dusted off my mental image of sexy jeans and moved it to the center of my frontal lobe smack where I do my thinking and reasoning. The result is two days of controlled purposeful eating. I like that. I think I'll stick with it!

    I needed this conversation this morning. Or well, needed to have it with myself that is. My mind flirted with the idea of thinking about it but then got sidetracked by something else. I need to do some dusting of my own I think.
    Thanks for the inspiration! Here's to your continued purposeful eating!

    Ohhhhh, I think I see a "wise eating streak" emerging!

    You certainly CAN. You've proven it over and over!!! And I'm sure you will.

    Your SP friends will overwhelm you with skinny jeans goodies...I have a pair on lay-away for you right now!!!

    So pleased that you sawed logs & got 8.5 hr. sleep...that's step 1!
