The last few days have been difficult. I've bounced right back into old habits and now its time to bounce back to my new ones.
I did so well most of this week, to ruin it over the last two days disappoints me. I allowed myself to eat without thinking first, and I just popped back into old eating patterns. Tomorrow is a new day and I will make better choices. This week has been difficult emotionally, financially and I am feeling myself fall back into a slight depression. I can't let that happen again. It was such a challenge last time and I know how hard it was to get back to life again.
So...I am going to participate in Grateful November. Maybe you have heard of it? It is usually done on Facebook, but I thought I would post here instead. For each day of November, you post one thing you are grateful for. If you would like, feel free to post what you are grateful for in the comments of this blog. I think looking at what I have versus what I don't have, will help fight this depression. Also, I am going to do some sort of exercise each day in November (with the exception of today since I didn't go to the gym and I am waking up super early tomorrow). I am also going to make myself THINK before I put anything in my mouth.
Weight loss is challenging, but it can be accomplished. As one of my wonderful friends told us, tell yourself "I'm possible." This week, this is going to be my mantra. Any time I am wanting to eat when I am not hungry or miss my workout, I'm going to tell myself quietly and kindly, "I'm possible."
Nov. 1st: Today, I am grateful for my wonderful, encouraging and supportive family that loves me, faults and all.
