Lately, I have been chattering a lot to myself when making right or wrong choices. If I can think, prior to every meal about my "food plan of action" I will usually make healthier choices. So it helps me to decide what and how much I will eat before I eat. I am drinking 16 ounces of water before meals which hydrates and stops me from over eating. Finally, I am replacing my refined sugars for pure honey instead when I crave sweets. For dessert I had a few watermelon chunks instead of my favorite chocolate cake.
Also, I will snack on nuts for my snack instead of chips. I love nuts and it's a bit hard to eat them in moderations as I desire. I will try to change my mind-set and start eating less. I also take a tablespoon of honey mixed with apple cider vinegar each day. I used to have heartburns often and since I've been taking AC my heartburns have subsided.
Over all, I think I am moving ahead but I could exercise more. I find if I don't feel energized that I will simply think about exercising and do everything else that's not related to the word "exercise". (lol) I plan to put my goals into writing. There is one thing I am holding back on for awhile and that is getting on the scale. I used to get on the scale every other day until I discovered that was not a wise idea. I think I will do weekly weights instead of the daily weights and see how that goes. That's it for now and I am inspired about my future!
