Knowing what I really want

Monday, July 16, 2012

I've been able to step up the exercise and that feels great. I need to up the strength training, but one step at a time.

My biggest problem is food.

I have developed some very bad habits. I eat when I'm bored. I eat when I'm stuck on a problem. I eat when I'm tired. The list goes on.

I have discovered however that when I stick to healthy foods, I feel so much better, and the rest of the excuses don't have as much place in my life.

The question I have to ask myself is... Do I really want this?

I got into the habit of justifying a candy bar or a mini donut pack every time I went shopping 'because I deserve it'. Lately, when I look at them as I go by in the store, I've started asking myself if I really want it instead of just buying it. If I truly stop and analyze, the answer is always no. There are so many things I eat because they taste good, but even within minutes, I don't feel good anymore. My head feels heavy, or I start to get a bit of a headache, or my stomach gets uncomfortable. I know these things aren't good for me.

So I'm learning to ask, Do I really want this? Because what I really want is to be healthy, and happy with my size.
