Of course, it's easier to describe what I'm going through, address the issues that I've noted that have gotten me where I am and itemize my goals then to *put into action* my plans... 'IF IT WAS EASY, EVERYONE WOULD DO IT".
It's time to get myself together. It's not just about the number on the scale, but the way I feel. And right now, I feel crappy. After a hectic crazy work week, I managed to cook twice-- and not take care of myself at all. A work crisis led me to little sleep (5 hours one night and 3 the next...) and I'm sure that didn't help-- but then crappy eating and by Friday I had the most heinous headache I've had in a long time. Go figure-- I know how food can effect my well-being and mood. I just ignore that knowledge until it's too late.
So-- to stop talking about it, and be about it: I've managed to make a huge salad for the week, baked chicken breasts, made a healthy crock-pot of shredded barbeque chicken (perfect for personal pizzas on whole wheat tortillas) and have stocked up on fresh fruit, fresh veggies and some frozen fruits.
I recently got the Ninja Kitchen System for a Christmas gift (well, I exchanged the 1100 for the 1500 because I had 30% off at Kohl's and got it for like $20 out of pocket
) I just had a blended snack of kiwi, frozen grapes & frozen strawberries-- talk about yummy... The Ninja is so cool! I am trying to find recipes for it and am coming up with my own... I can't wait to make my green smoothie with kale, etc... We'll see if I can come up with the comparable to Green Machine
And of course, after having good foods/snacks since 6 a.m. this morning-- I feel better than I have all week. I just have to make the effort to treat myself well and take a moment to fuel with good things (or to fuel at all?! I didn't eat at all on Friday, which is probably where part of that headache came from-- I finally had dinner at around 5:30 and it wasn't a good choice-- burger & fries at the movies...)
Time to get to it and start living my plans, start reaching my goals.
What are *you* going to do for *yourself*? How do you put your plans into action to reach your goals???
