I am humbled... Day Two

Friday, March 21, 2014

I am humbled by the number of comments to my recent blog post about starting over... Day One. I don't know how Sparkpeople decide which blogs to feature, but it made me feel good that "someone" was listening.

The comments made to my entry gave me lots of "food for thought." (And healthy food, at that!).

What most resonated with me was the idea of living in the "now." By that I mean at least two people suggested that instead of wearing my jeans in an uncomfortable way just to avoid buying the next size, that I should just buy some comfortable jeans (no matter what the size), and continue to work towards that goal. (I am certain that sentence was NOT grammatically correct!).

So tomorrow I am going to go shopping for pants that fit. BUT, I am not going to have that be permission to keep eating/bingeing just because I can fit into them.

Also, I'm going to change my goals a bit. Instead of having an "expiration date" for my goals, my goals will never expire. Here they are...

emoticon Drink more water... At least 5 12 ounce glasses a day.

emoticon Exercise... whether it be walking, rowing or lifting weights... at least 10 minutes a day. (And I know me... once I start, I will not stop after 10 minutes. It's the "starting" that is the challenge).

emoticon I do eat healthy foods... lots of them. Unfortunately it's the mindless bingeing that it what is making me fat. I am going to try to substitute the binges with something else (such as reading, walking, even a nap). If my cravings don't subside, I will have a healthy snack.

Sooooo.... that's my plan. And I'm sticking to it!

Thanks for reading!

    Woohoo! That's an excellent plan! And to paraphrase a well-known saying, "A year from now you'll be so glad that you started today!"
