Maybe I AM positive!

Friday, July 20, 2012

These small steps were a part of an article featured today; you may have read it. I was doing great, reading down the list-Check, water, check, veggies, check, fruits, check. Well you get the picture. Then I got to the last one. Hmm, how am I coming on that one?


Get up without the snooze
Drink 8 glasses of water
Eat 2 veggies
Eat 2 fruits
Eat 2 complex carbs
Write in a journal
Take a walk
Put up motivating pictures
Gather motivating music
Tell a friend about weight loss goals
Avoid using negative words that could discourage you

Until three days ago, I would have said OOOPS, gotta get at that one. But for some reason, and I am not really sure how it happens, my attitude took a turn for the better. (I struggle with clinical depression and I can get PRETTY darned down on myself bytimes.) My husband had to go away for three days and I earmarked those days for three days of attitude adjustment, re-dedication to my South Beach eating and three days of commitment to me-time (which included my running as that is no longer a chore but a reward--when did THAT happen???)

It seems that my three day plan is working, unfolding as it should. DH is due back in about half an hour and I feel like he is coming back to a different person than he left. (No I'm not bi-polar, just really have had a positive attitude adjustment
emoticon. Yay, I'm back inside my own skin!

    I like your list I should adopt a few of those myself. (Seeing as I too struggle with depression.) I'm glad you're feeling better. Nothing beats feeling the cloud lift and feeling like yourself again. Running is a treat? Now that's best!

    emoticon Three days and you did that is great.. emoticon .

    I know my sister told me a couple years ago that even saying I am "losing" weight gives it a negative connotation.. She suggested saying "releasing fat". Sometimes the littlest things!!! emoticon
