So what's been happening?

Sunday, August 25, 2013

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!

    Great! Maybe you can write it down in a journal so when you begin to feel low - you can use your own advice! I think that would be helpful to you!

    I'm at one of those losing sight and temptation creeping in places right now. You're right - it will pass. However, it's a good thing there's no unhealthy food in the house!

    It is great that when you hit the plateaus, you still keep on trying and don't give up!

    Funny, I thought you had a typo preparing for "spring" as I prepare for "fall" but then I realized you are from another part of the world. emoticon
