I missed my entry in the beginning of the week so I will do so now. I feel my progress is going great! Honestly, I KNOW I could do better. However, I want this to be a 'forever' life change and not a limited diet phase. I am saying this because my biggest change has been eating more consciously. Before I let any food pass my lips I really think about it....I think about what I may have planned later in the day. I look for the"good" stuff in food...protein, good fats, good carbs. I think how will this food impact my body, my health, my goals. If I know I plan to have a glass of wine that evening, I may forgo my afternoon crackers or lunch cookie. I am learning to compromise with myself. By doing it this way, I don't feel like I am denying myself which ultimately leads to "pigging out". I feel in control of food, my body, my self. So for me...it seems to be working. I stepped on the scale this morning and it looked like I may have gained back 2 lbs. But my jeans are telling me a different story. Of course I weighed myself with all my clothes on which I normally do not do. I will not worry or flip out. I am in control of my body and we are feeling great and for the most part, living a healthy lifestyle.
Here's to a long 4-day weekend!!
