Keeping on . . .

Monday, January 21, 2013

. . . and very happy to find myself doing so. Dunno where my oomph went but it’s certainly been in hiding for a long while. I started entering food and movement into my trackers after New Year without actually worrying about cals in and out, just to get back into the habit. I’ve been walking - thanks to Coach Nicole’s blog detailing walking plans to follow and collected other recent articles, trawled Secrets to Success and other Sparklers’ blogs. As always the motivation is here now I have come to look. Just remains for me to act on it. So now I’m taking more serious notice of what I consume and getting back into some sort of exercise – nothing drastic, just gentle and regular.
I have to say that a few days of an acute kidney infection has got me on track in ways that I would never have imagined. Somehow, my body knew what it SHOULDN’T have – very little meat or strong cheese – no coffee or alcohol – nothing sweet - and what it SHOULD have - loads and loads of water which I normally find quite hard. Currently it’s my beverage of choice. Much better portion control and I haven’t had a glass of wine for over a week. So I’m looking after myself and NONE of it’s an effort right now. Long may it last! I’m clinging by my fingernails to the new and better preferences and hoping for them to become entrenched habits - finally.

    Hun, hope you are soon recovered from the infection but every cloud eh? How many repetitions does it take to form or reform a habit?

    Sounds like you are back in the zone - good for you. If we all really listened to our bodies all the time we wouldn't need to be on here!! I'm kind of in the healthy eating zone but keep stepping out of it - done no harm yet.

    Need to take a leaf out of your book and get walking - current excuse is the snow and ice.

    You are doing great - got my eye on you so keep at it emoticon emoticon xxx

    I hope that your infection is soon over & the changes it has brought on will linger.
