That is my motto for today. I've actually had a good day. Yesterday was fairly good as well. I made bake spaghetti squash for my almost children and boyfriend. The BF made smoked chicken on the outdoor smoker and then we made some hash brown potatoes with some yellow peppers mixed in. Not the healthiest but it sure beat what we would normally have consumed.
I've decided to try a different method in my eating patterns. I find that when I am bored, I look to food. I also do the same when stressed or overwhelmed. I am going to find creative things to do that will occupy my mind. I love to read but find mindless eating with that as well so going to attempt to mix things up a bit. I have always wanted to write so going to practice my story ideas when bored and put those to paper. I am also going to find more "active" things such as dancing like an idiot to my IPod in a private area of the house or jumping on the treadmill to release some energy that way. The point is that I need to occupy my MIND as well as work my body.
It is so worth the effort to see the results. I know that already so I have to just keep the faith and not give up!
