It's Been Two Weeks

Monday, January 14, 2013

So, after fourteen days in my new and improved lifestyle, what have I learned? Not a heck of a lot.

Did I learn how many calories I should have each day?
No, already knew that.

Did I learn how much exercise I should get weekly?
No, I already knew that.

Did I learn what foods are healthier than others?
No, I already knew that.

Oh come on, I must have learned something!

And so I have. I saw it happen. I have proof. I have learned:

- I can actually make healthy choices for a whole two weeks.
- I need frequent reminders that I am improving my life, not depriving myself.
- I need frequent reminders of why I want to make these changes.
- I can go shopping even if I am hungry. But I don't like it.
- I need to plan for more snacks so I don't get very hungry.
- I need constant rewards. The number on the scale going down is a good one.

Ok, maybe I did learn a lot.

    What have I learned so far this year?
    Being bored does not equal hungry. It's okay to leave food left on the plate/ not belong to the "clean plate"club. I actually like turnips.

    Too take this slowly. I have in the past just rushed it and then burned out. I really want this to take so maybe it is all about the baby steps. Great blog!!

    Hey, the Chinese are very healthy people!
    I'm sure it's just because it's Monday.
    No, really. :-)

    I had wonderful chinese food over the weekend
    Both Saturday night and lots of leftovers on Sunday
    (of course the scale didn't go down this morning)

    I had to drag myself out of bed this morning
    and I'm still tired
    intravenious coffee?

    I think the two may be related...
