Well, What can I SAY?

Thursday, August 08, 2013

Hey everyone!

Well, I guess what I can say is that I am SO proud of myself. I am probably one of the most tenacious people I know... and I would say I was modest and humble too...but I guess that would rule out humility as a trait! LOL

I have still been working hard at being healthy! I've dedicated August to being KIND to myself and choosing joy/love. That sounds hokey. The truth is though, that it IS exhausting to have to FORCE yourself to do anything day in and day out. So, I've made a promise to eat healthy every opportunity I can, when I can. I will exercise as much as I can, when my energy/health/schedule allow.

For me, since I love to workout I feel that more days than not, I'll exercise. Because I want to lose weight and eliminate health risk, more days than not I will choose healthy foods. For ex, today, I went to chick-fil-a [tried to give up fast food... but still I have been unable to do so. So, I am deciding instead to limit the KINDS of foods I can buy at fast food places and mke the best of the situation. Today, I got a 6-piece kids meal... [which was already a good choice], THEN I replaced the fries with fruit! Isn't that awesome? - I'm giving myself credit for that!
- Also, I took a bag of salad to work - left it in the work fridge and ate that with my lunch when I forgot to bring a veggie.

I ate a Wendy's one day and got a grilled chicken sandwich AND a baked potato, instead of fries.

I'm trying to do what I can, when I can... and I hope it pays off!

Oh and in OTHER news: I PASSED BOARDS!!! I'm so proud of that. I worked really hard and used my free time to study when I would have rather been relaxing or asleep! So YAY!

Now, back to my fitness goals. 40 pounds by end of DECEMBER [or so close I can taste it!]

Now that's enough talk... time to MAKE IT HAPPEN!

    WOW! Congratulations on passing your boards! And don't downplay those choices at the fast food places! You're doing great! The longer I'm on this journey, the more I'm really starting to grasp that concept that in order to be successful we have to find a way to make this work that we can actually LIVE with. If your lifestyle has you visiting fast food places (for whatever reasons there may be - busy person myself, I totally get that) you're making better choices while your there!

    You're doing awesome! Love your goal of being KIND to yourself...and choosing joy/love. I struggle with those things...and darnit...it's HARD sometimes!

    Wishing you all the best! Have a great weekend!

    emoticon on passing boards! You rock!!!

    PS... I too was thinking about healthy eating at fast food restaurants. You can make better choices when you eat out, they may not be 'body builder' lifestyle healthy... but there are always choices for being more healthy then other items on the menu! Good job for making that mental switch! Your hard work will pay off!!!
