A big blue bird.

Friday, March 22, 2013

The first day of spring came in typical Oregon fashion...Rain storms complete with wind. I have been thinking how uncommitted I have been to this journey. I have given in to lots of cravings lately. I was feeling grey. Just like the weather today. I was wondering if spring would ever come. I was also wondering IF I would ever stay committed.

Then I looked out my kitchen window. My trees are still mostly bare. Not much change from the winter. But, in the middle of the tree right in front of my window was a big blue bird. These birds go away during winter. So the fact that they are back shows that spring is coming. I have even heard birds chirping in the morning.

I have eaten OK today. I went to several stores and did not buy any sweets. So I am succeeding. I am working to keep my meals on schedule. I am struggling with that one but, I am sure that I will get that one soon.

I will get this. The spring of my recommitment is here. I will do this and I can do this. I have learned from my past choices.

I know that I want to do this. I know that when I eat poorly I do not feel good. I know that I want to feel good. I know that I will do this.

I am so impressed with my son who has been diagnosed with allergies. There is soy in everything and he is avoiding it. I can treat sugar the same way that he treats soy and we will both be AWESOM!

    In the Mississippi River delta the Bluebirds are small but the light on the male is awesome. We also have blue Buntings on Crowley's Ridge that look like a flying neon light. All these images will get us through to the real spring.

    You can do this! I gave up sugar last January for a whole year and it worked. Sugar seems to make me more emotional and getting into these horrible cylcles with it that leave me feeling depressed.

    It seems as though that bluebird gave you reason to recommit! Yes, spring is coming, and now's a great time to get back to your journey. You'll be happy you did once it comes time to wear those little cute sundresses! emoticon

    I'm glad you're making a commitment to your health. Because thinking, wishing, talking, & blogging won't get us slim, fit and healthy.
    You can do it!

    Ah yes the bluebirds return early to secure the best nesting sites. Take into consideration that you are still here at SP. That means commitment. Sure we all hit some speed bumps in our journey. But the road smooths out and we continue on... and so shall you. I think you are doing great. Think of where you were a month ago, six months ago, a year ago. Subtle changes have taken place and you are moving forward.
