Focusing on the Positive
Sunday, January 27, 2013
Every weekend for the past year I have not stuck to my plan to eat sensibly some weeks it is worse than others. As a result Sunday is a nightmare i suffer from IBS big time and mind fog and in general I'm not pleasant to be around.
I think because I focus on the fact that none of the strategies that help other people work for me I get more and more depressed about this situation so instead I am going to focus on what is going right.
I am committed to my fitness by ensuring I average an hour a day for 6 days. Notice average. I also sometimes get my exercise split up into two sessions if I have other commitments.
I have enrolled in a free Nutrition course. I'm afraid it is going to go the route of all fats are bad for you but there is a great international face book group that I can fead off. I love having assignments to do and getting my mind to work on something that interests me. It is hard to study with an almost full time job, a house to run and everyone being sick for the last week.
I am constantly finding more information and trying new strategies to deal with my emotional eating and one day I'm sure it will all click into place.
I went to the market and bought great fruit, spices, coffee beans and herbs to go with my CSA box and even the kids loved cauliflower mash and asked me to make it again.
I am grateful that I am learning to deal with the fact that this is a long journey and I am starting to enjoy the journey and not wait to cross a finish line and go back to bad habits.
I am also grateful for this site and have even mentioned it to my nutrition course mates as a very good and useful source.
Green smoothie anyone? (Today's had kale, home made granola cookie (oats, dried fruit, mashed bananas), 1 tbs pb, 1 tsp cocoa, 1 cup almond milk and 4 ice cubes. Yummy)
