Life continues to move forward. I seem to experience weight loss plateaus regularly but I keep at it. My push for moderation seems to be flooding into other aspects of my life. I no longer work ridiculous hours and, yet, I am accomplishing just as much.
For a while, people have been asking me if I have a bit more energy now. I have only just noticed a change in my energy levels in the last week or so. I am enjoying being outside and preparing for spring. Exercise is slowly becoming a very important part of my life rather than something I avoided.
Sometimes I lose sight of my goals and bad habits creep in way too fast. Whilst I have to accept imperfection, it is easy to become less than vigilant about moderating food and exercise. You do need to be mindful and balanced.
I regularly attempt to meditate and try to let worries and stress go. My mantra is "This too shall pass".
Shoving down my feelings with food just doesn't cut it anymore. I want better for myself and my family. Every day is a new opportunity to care for myself through a healthy lifestyle. I just wish I didn't forget this when I am feeling low!
