Alright, I know this title is cliche, but it is cliche for a reason right? I am re-starting my new healthy lifestyle, both food and money wise. I loved Weight Watchers, but it didn't fit financially with my budget, so I am here. I found SparkPeople through Team Taralynn. The Team Taralynn girls are AMAZING and INSPIRATIONAL! They found success here, and I believe I can to. I love healthy food, but my current lifestyle both ruins and creates success for it. I work overnight, so when I wake up at 8 pm, I am eating breakfast. The positives are that I have no choice but to cook or eat Lean Cuisines due to not many restaurants are serving what I want when I want them. (Unless it's Jack In The Box) I have to pack my own lunch meal, but sometimes that is just something that my mother made, which is never that healthy (though she tries to be supportive). I slipped back into bad habits when I quit WW, but now am trying to stop them one at a time, by trying to replace them with something else positive. Like no more chocolaty, unhealthy sweets in the house and replacing that with journalling. I eat those things when I'm stressed or upset, so I figure writing them out balances it. Now I am trying to incorporate exercise by doing at least ten minutes a day, like is suggested on here. I'm doing this one step at a time, and going backwards happens but I am just trying to keep my eyes on the prize of a healthy lifestyle I can be proud of.
