I hear you, loud and clear, Universe! =)

Wednesday, February 12, 2014

It's so crazy how things happen sometimes.

I have had such a chaotic year last year, it's been a wild ride. My weight fluctuated up and down the same 2-3 pounds and I wasn't really getting anywhere. As of 2014, I have gotten down about 8 pounds and this week is the week I could potentially get past that mark, since I haven't been below 222 since July.

I have been struggling, but I have been asking the Universe..."Please help me to help myself. I give you permission to guide me in the right direction." Well, over the last week or so, I have received the Universe's message loud and clear. GET HEALTHY! WE WILL HELP!

Today I woke up finding an email stating I was selected to be the Done Girl of the Month! I was beyond surprised, grateful, excited and a whole bunch of other emotions. Last Sunday, I was notified via SparkMail that I had won a prize in the January Jumpstart Challenge and I had over 1200 fitness minutes! I have also had very strange encounters where it seemed like something said was meant for me to hear, or something I saw was meant for me to see. And...I have been seeing Angels everywhere!

I am feeling very blessed and very loved. I think tomorrow will start a new healthy lifestyle for me. I am going to STOP dieting. I am so fearful of this, I know it's going to be hard not to track my calories and Points Plus, but I think I need to do this for a few weeks to get back in touch with my body and my hunger. I will stick to Power Foods (lean protein, fat free dairy, vegetables, fruits and my gluten free carbs, which are minimal).

I think because I have dieted so much in my life, I really need to re-learn what healthy (not super controlled, diet mentality) eating looks like as a LIFESTYLE. I am going to give myself the month of February to see how this goes.

My goals for February are:

1) To be more CONSISTENTLY active. Exercising in the early morning works for me, I have learned from my past. I need to begin getting back into that routine.

2) I will eat from the Power Foods and serve myself on a 10" plate. I will eat 3 meals a day and snack on fruit, fat free yogurt, nuts or veggies IF I am hungry.

3) I will speak to myself kindly and with love. I will remind myself each morning and each night of the positive changes I made that day and how that is improving my health.

So...Universe - I hear you!

You are encouraging me to take care of my body and to start loving ME! This year, that is what I will focus on and I won't let you down!

    That is wonderful how things are starting to happen for you! Those are great goals. It's funny how after asking for so long for help that sometimes help comes and smacks you right between the eyes. Good for you for keeping your eyes open for the messages that were being sent your way.

Keep up the great work. You can definitely do this. emoticon
