A new way of thinking...
Wednesday, November 07, 2012
My thoughts are not the same as they were 31 days ago.
-Yesterday, I had a cup of coffee with cream and sugar. I didn't feel guilty, I just decided I would forego my friendly carb for the day.
-Now, when I get hungry, I now am able to push the thought of grabbing something quick and unhealthy out of my mind and instead look for a lean protein and veggies.
-I no longer think that taking 4 months or more to lose 30 pounds is a long time, considering I am making lifestyle changes.
-I am ok with not having sugar in my diet. I no longer crave it, and I know that for me, sugar is like a drug, so I need to stay away from it until I can find healthier alternatives.
-I no longer have the "all or nothing" mentality. Because this is going to be a lifestyle, I can now have something off my diet and not feel like I have to binge just because I've already messed it up.
-I actually like and look forward herbal tea.
-I am now making plans for my diet and exercise future. I have made a plan to slowly add foods back into my diet and see if I have adverse reactions, telling me which foods I'm sensitive to. I also have plans for how to build my strength and endurance.
I never thought I would be at the point where I didn't constantly think about unhealthy food and what quick fix would help me lose weight. My way of thinking is evolving, so that healthy is now becoming a way of life.
