I am finding it so incredibly hard to stay on track. I know I am not alone on this, but usually when I set out to work on my weight, I have a lot of momentum for a few months and see some major changes. That just hasn't been the case this time around. I struggle to eat healthy and work out everyday.
I am trying to change my thoughts along with changing my body. I need to look at the positives, not just the negatives. If I am going to change what I look like on the outside, I need to change on the inside first. I love the show "The Biggest Loser" and that was the main topic this past week. I know why I struggle with my weight, but maybe I need to say it out loud. First of all, my parents are over weight as well and we never really talked about eating healthy when I was a kid. I don't blame my parents for this, however I wish that I had taken control of it when I got into high school when my weight started to catch up with me. I also had a lot going on within my family. I am the oldest of three and my mom left us at a younger age. She is back in the picture now, but I always felt like I needed to step up and be a mother to my younger brothers. Things in my life finally feel like they are back on track.
I want to feel good about myself. I am going to start from the inside out.. With that said, here are my goals for the week:
1. No soda
2. Counteract every bad thought with a good one
3 keep a journal with my thoughts, wants, and dreams.
I know there aren't a lot of physical changes that will happen with this week, but I really need to get rid of my caffeine addiction... it really is an addiction. I'm on day one and my head is pounding!! I hope tomorrow will be better!
