Let Me Organize my Mind...

Thursday, April 18, 2013

I have been doing pretty much excellent on my eating habits and my food tracking. I find myself having difficulty with the workouts. I just need to get on the ball! It's so much easier said than done. I have a thousand things going on and by the time I'm done, I'm just crashing from the caffeine, which is another story..... Sigh.

I am really glad I found the concept of committing to the ten minute workouts daily, it REALLY helps me mentally. I have a lot of stress swirling around right now, I graduate nursing school next week, which is exciting, but the stress of pulling it all together it can be challenging.

I have been thinking about doing up some quotes and hanging them in the workout room for motivation, just a few. Less is more. And I still want to do a goal/motivation board.

And the whole caffeine thing, it's getting out of hand again. I will do better. I will give up half. I think 2 cups of coffee a day, and 1 diet Pepsi every other day is fair. I need to drastically increase my water. I can do tea sometimes instead of coffee or diet Pepsi, I don't mind caffeine free tea, still tastes good and is comforting in the evening instead of a snack.

So recently I discovered I obsess about food. Food is on my mind way too much, about wanting to eat, not wanting to eat, what should/shouldn't I eat, what shouldn't I of ate, what I want to try to's too much. I've been doing it for so long, I'm not sure how to stop, it is in the books to be worked on. It is too excessive. The visuals Spark Coach offers do help with that a bit.

So anyways, that's it for now! Thanks for reading! Leave me feedback! I LOVE comments, they are motivating!!!!!!!!!!

    I've learned the if diet or a regular soda was consumed, I start craving foods. Foods will be on my mind all day long. So, I cut out the sodas totally and the food cravings went away. It also helped with the water drinking. I try to drink at least half the water intake by noon. Good luck and congrats on graduating next week!

    I too have had a problem with thinking about food all the time. It has gotten better this year though. I am taking a class at Church for "overcomers". My problem is I have a food addiction. But, even before the class started I started working on doing other things and thinking about other things. We do control our thoughts even though it is hard. It takes practice.
    Wishing you GREAT success!!!
