I wanted to give all of you a taste of what’s to come. I’m looking forward to this month and have not only high hopes, but high praise in what I am doing right now. I feel great! I’m moving up and down those stairs at work with ease, and the back of my legs are tight and my abs are getting a much needed workout as well. I’m impressed with my strength and the ability to do all things that my body needs. I’m not lazy when it comes to my health now, and I’m very mindful. I think seeing 172.2 on the scale Saturday morning really did it for me. I wasn’t very hungry yesterday, and I do believe those smoothies gave me all the stuff I needed. I had 2, but I didn’t have a full 32ozs on Saturday. I ate cake Friday and Saturday, and it didn’t bother me at all. I told my mother I won’t deprive because depriving me has also been my issue to healthy-ville. You don’t know the stresses behind depriving yourself of the simple pleasurable foods you like to eat. Like cake, chips, cookies, and ice-cream; I do believe I’m allowed to have those things, but I don’t have to go mad-crazy and overdo it with those foods, and I feel pretty good about this.
Now, we do keep on trying stuff until we get it right, and I do believe I have all the right answers to this journey right here.
I start each month with a number and end with a number and my number for this month on 2/2/2012 172.2 and I feel great about that. I want to end this month with 165 and I told my BFF “Sweetlips” that I will be at 165 by Feb the 21st. Yeah! I can say I raised the stakes on this one. I’m not going to fail, I have a lot of hard work ahead of me, and when I get off in the afternoon I plan on setting up my gym again. It needs to be re-organized and this is part of my self-love journey. Loving me and doing what is needed.
I will not struggle during these 26 days that are left.
I will not even whine about what isn’t going right in my life.
I don’t have time for whining, but I do have time to listen to those feel the need to whine or vent. It’s healthy for them –in a way, but it’s not healthy for me. You see. Whining and venting puts me in the state of self-loathing, and there won’t be any of that during my loving me journey and finding healthy. I do believe I’m at a cross roads here in my life, and as I stand here I look at 3 directions. Not 4, because the 4th direction is going backwards and I won’t have any of that. I will not go backwards.
So, I hope you enjoy my vblog creation and see my goals for the weeks ahead. I feel great! And nothing is going to stop me.
You know. My husband said something wonderful to me today.
He said. You look good and I’m happy for you. I’m happy for me too.
Have a blessed day! And be at peace with yourself.
Peace & Blessings!
