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!
