This week, I have taken some positive steps and made some positive choices but I have also made some not so great choices as well.
The week started out rough because of something all girls hate. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that one out! I craved something sweet & gave into some diet coke.
Yesterday, I was celebrating my friend's birthday & I had some Pineapple soda. It didn't sound appealing but I was curious about it. I also had some mint ice cream. Still, I passed up on the corn from the corn lady. I hope you know who/what I am talking about. I am sure someone out there does! I also passed up other ice cream that was offered as well as a piece of candy that was offered to me. I guess it wasn't the worst day but it wasn't the best day. Definitely room for improvement.
Today I did have cherry coke. A lot of it!
I don't usually drink soda but I think I know what happened. On January 1st, I read an article about tea and thyroid function so I decided to try giving up all forms of tea to see if I felt any better. I think I replaced the tea with soda. I do LOVE water but sometimes, I crave something with a little more flavor too.
When I was making decisions that weren't so great, there was a little voice inside my head telling me NOT to make those decisions. It was LOUD but I decided not to listen. The voice of reason. It is the voice that is ON YOUR SIDE. Why would I not listen to the voice that is trying to help me accomplish my goals? Maybe it's because I am so used to the Harsh, critical voice. The doubtful voice. The voices that AREN'T on my side. Those are the voices I have always listened to. The voice of reason is smart & kind. I like her. I will start listening to what she has to say!
Now, to the positive things.
Cutting out tea has helped. I haven't felt dizzy all week! Not even slightly. :D
I have met my goal of walking a minimum of 4 x per week for at least an hour this past week. Woohoo!
I have been drinking a lot of water.
I went out today even though I didn't feel like it & it went well. I don't mind going out but I usually don't go if I don't feel like it and I have a choice.
My sleep has been on track! Finally! :)
I have relaxed for most of the week. It's not easy for me to relax so that's a big deal.
No headaches this week. I get Migraines & Sinus headaches all the time so this is also a big deal! :)
I am still going to keep my fearless acronym (refer to last blog) in mind.
How did this past week go for you?
Keep striving to reach the goals you set. You did set them FOR A REASON!
Don't forget to listen to that smart, kind voice of reason when she or he is speaking!
