Well... it isn't goin' so swell. I think out of the entire week, I stayed within my range 3 days. But that's ok. I'm not perfect. :) I'm definitely not beating myself up about it. Just going to have to work on making better choices.
I have a whole nother week until I can do some grocery shopping. I hate being on this food budget from hell. It makes it very difficult --not impossible, but definitely very difficult to make smart choices.
I've had to back off a bit on the whole eating clean thing due to my budget. I can eat clean for about 2 weeks, then I have to make do. It ends up stressing me out, so I'm opting out of that stress factor for the time being. There WILL be a day when it will be a piece of cake. :)
So what I have decided to do is give myself a break. It is next to impossible for me to avoid many of the 'monsters' out there, given my budget, so I am going to have to choose my battles. HFCS will always be one that I choose to battle. I will continue to do my best in choosing my meats wisely. And will still get as close to unprocessed as possible. Organics will have to be few and far between. I need to be smarter about my money. Super smart.
I also need to hop back on the Positive Thoughts bandwagon. They have slipped away from me over the last week. I need them back. :) I am going to start a gratitude journal, to better assist me on my Positive Journey. If you are unsure of what I am talking about, check out www.thesecret.tv
. There are many other sources, but this is the basic.
I just need to stop allowing doubt into my mind. There truly is no room for it. I had a few days of weakness and negativity, so doubt saw that as an invitation. But Doubt is NOT invited. I'm gonna have to get the Positivity Bouncers to escort them out. ;)
And on another note. Has anyone heard of Tabata?? I got an email from Shape magazine about some of the top workout myths, and saw a link for Tabata, the 4-Minute Fat-Burning Workout. Sounds very interesting. You can read about it here --> www.shape.com/fitness/ca
And with that, I am going to get off here and get to business. Have a National Coach Call to hop onto to better my business, and my mood!
Hope you all have a blessed day!
