Mental fitness minutes???

Saturday, August 17, 2013

If fighting all that negative self-talk was a physical one, rather than mental one, I would have racked up a lot of fitness minutes yesterday!

It is amazing how many triggers there are just sitting around in plain sight. For example, the chocolate zucchini brownie cupcakes and carrot zucchini bread (Spark Recipes - both with extra fiber and flax seeds - woohoo!) on the cooling rack . . . they are headed for the freezer, wrapped in individual serving sizes. Right now!

Another day, another step forward.

    Sounds yummy emoticon Good that you got them into the freezer. I love Zucchini Bread and I could have easily eaten 2 thick slices - no butter of course - LOL! - without blinking a eye.

    I hope you're having a better day by the time you read this. And congratulations for not eating all those triggers all at once in response!

    I'm sorry it's been a struggle - I so understand! I wish there were Spark points for mental exercise because it often feels like that is more work and requires a lot more determination. LOL! But, really is my battle.

    "you put one foot in front of the other
and soon you'll be walking cross the floor
put one foot in front of the other
and soon you'll be walking out the door"

That's from an animated Christmas movie, I forget which one. All we can do it keep putting one foot in front of the other. You are doing a great job of that!

    LOL . . . I think you're right. If we got in physical shape with MENTAL activity, we'd be Mr. or Ms. Universe bodies!
