Oh, the best is yet to come!!

Friday, March 15, 2013

This is a tough, tough journey. I guess what makes this journey different from many others is that we do still need to eat. It's not like we can quit our "vice" cold turkey, right? We still need to fuel our bodies.

I have learned so much about myself on this journey. I am learning that it's ok to feel hunger pangs. I hadn't felt them in years, now I feel them every day . . . and guess what?!? I didn't die!! I'm still here!!

I've also learned that I'm pretty tough & that I can hang with the big dogs pretty well in the gym. It's an honor to see some of the newbies try to hang with ME for a change. emoticon

Fuel your body with healthy stuff. That nasty sugary stuff just makes you feel terrible anyway. Look how beautiful this is -- all the pretty colors!!

Fruits make a great dessert because if you haven't been eating a bunch of sugary junk, the fruit tastes so much sweeter. I think our taste buds become deadened somehow by eating that processed goop.

Today, work for it!! Work for your dream!!

One other thing I've learned about myself -- I ENJOY going to the gym. Who'd a thunk, right? emoticon I was at work yesterday & I was thinking about going to the gym later in the day & I felt excitement!! I know how great I feel after an awesome workout. I never thought I'd get to that point in my life, but I finally have!

Do three things today that lead to your dream. Just keep pushing . . . the best is yet to come!!

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    Thanks for the inspiration and encouragement. How true, we can't quit eating like with other additions. We simply have to eat properly. I just had a sandwich and my dessert was an apple. It was sweet and hit the spot. I don't go to the gym as it is expensive so I work out at home. Wishing you a Blessed weekend.

    You make a very valid cannot quit cold turkey. Another thing, you cannot shut yourself in away from those who eat poorly either. You have to drive past fat food restaurants on your way to the store to buy healthy foods. It is probably the biggest addiction to overcome.

I also believe that has the most wonderful and dedicated people around. I will never leave this group of focused people. It is my bible to health. I have learned so much about food, exercise and friendship here!

Keep fighting the good fight!!!

    All I can think about is there is a multitude of people who can't afford s gym, a TV,or had that great assortment of food. There too many of them out in our world ho we forget.
