Wake up Call & Taking Action

Sunday, April 27, 2014

I have allowed this "4 month moving process" to lend me an excuse to eat less mindfully, exercise less, and slink back into a few poor habits. . .I admit it.
It confuses me how in the past 2 years ...there have been other stresses common in life, and I didn't balk....I wonder why now? But that is not what is most important. What is vital is that I AM awake and headed in the right direction.

UPDATE - We are still in that "Moving Process" waiting on our appraisal to be completed, but I am not waiting any longer. It's TIME now to take back what once was....a very focused Me.

Here is where my accountability BEGINS! ...well, it actually began in my personal journal a few days ago. Today, I have the courage to blog about it. emoticon ...and I know Ya'll will support me.

I am equipped, def. have the needed mental/physical tools to break out of this daze, and I do have the determination required. I will post on my feed daily so as to hold myself accountable...for me. emoticon
It takes 21 days to break a habit & 21 additional days to form another.
emoticon emoticon Here I GO!

I will begin with my weakness, "saying NO to dessert". My PLAN is to take the following 21 days to break that habit through being 100% consistent. My goal is to be at the place I was a few months ago where dessert was not a daily or weekly habit. Fruit sufficed before and I LOVE fruit!
I will lose a few pounds in the process, gain that EnErGy I crave, live in a focused & mindful way,and once again feel lighter, slimmer and healthier.

    Yes! You are doing something great!

I have to admit too, that I've been slacking in the eating department.

Good for you!! emoticon

    Sounds like you caught this just in time. You're so wise to catch this early and blog about it in order to hold yourself accountable. Sugar is a horrible addiction that gets out of control too easily.

    emoticon YOU CAN DO IT LAURA!!! emoticon

I totally understand how the move stuff seems to offer an excuse. I've not been "as good" as I could have been either and am taking control again myself.

    Oh Yes! I can relate! We're not in the moving process but our DS and DIL are (moving from our house to their new one)....and let's just say that DESSERT has become a household fixture. I'm with you....fruit is emoticon

satan loves to distract us from doing what God wants us to do! May you become focused on God's plan once again, Laura!
Thanks for being a great source of inspiration for me! emoticon

    Clear the deck, she comes!! And she means Business! This woman is like a very straight arrow...she focuses on the bull's eye and watch out!

Those few extra pounds are headed for the curb. You can do it & there's no doubt that you will do it. I'm nearby hoping to pick up some tips and synergy! emoticon
