Its been a really sluggish week for me. I didn't get half the things done I wanted to. I just had a general feeling of not feeling well. I seem to be a little more energetic this morning. With that in mind I have a big list of things I want to get done. I really don't enjoy spring cleaning when the weather is gloomy and cold, but I want to get a headstart on this year.
I am doing really well on my program, all things considered. My biggest obstacle so far has been eating all of my daily points. I usually start out in the morning feeling like I can't have a big breakfast because that will run me short on points later in the evening. I plan for the evening way ahead of time, so I am not sure why I feel like that lol. I don't like getting to the end of the day and thinking I have to eat something even if I don't feel like it ... just to get ALL of my points in. I know this will change as I lose weight and the daily points go down. So, for now I am just trying new things. Yesterday I made a list of all the foods I like that are healthy. My plan is to use that list to make my menus. The list also has a column for "healthy snacks". So, at a first glance I can add something to my meals if need to and also have the option for a healthy snack if I desire one.
Another obstacle for me is the fact that I suffer from IBS, which makes eating a LOT of raw food tricky for me. I have had a little bout of that as well this week. I am determined, however, that nothing is going to keep me from doing this. I just cut back on the amounts of raw fruits and veggies that I ate for a couple of days and that seems to have helped.
Another week almost gone.. along with another month. I have to say, I am so happy to see January go. I really dislike cold weather. This winter has been an enormous hardship for me in ways I won't go into, but I am ecstatic to get back to warmer weather! I love spring and the hope that it brings. It's like a brand new world. I love to see the color come back.
Enough daydreaming......its time to get busy!
