Checking In

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

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!

    You are right about the scales being our friend or enemy. Also, I agree that writing goals serve as one of our greatest motivators and it helps us to track our progress. emoticon

  The scale can be our friend as well as our enemy. It seems as you have identified a few things and making the needed adjustments. If it is to be, it must start with us. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I think putting your goals in writing is a good motivator. Sounds like you are on the right path. emoticon
