I love to write and anybody who knows me knows I keep many journals. One I keep is called a Humour Journal, another a Blessings Journal and a Happy Journal. They sound similar but are different. When I am feeling down I pick up one of these and flip through my entries and it picks my mood up.
ALWAYS read the labels on the foods you are picking up. I never thought much of a couple of items I ate regularly and then I read the nutrition label to find it contained over 700mg of sodium. Always read the nutrition lables, even if it does take more of your time. Your health is worth it.
Having a hard time staying on the positive side of life? Try keeping a Blessings journal, writing down all the things/people you have been blessed with.
Also start a Gratitude Journal, writing down EVERY little thing you are grateful for, hairbrushes to water & see how your life lights up :)
Whatever it is you want in life, the outcome is determined in a large part by your attitude toward it and about it. Yes, losing weight is difficult and sometimes long, but so was becomoing overweight a long process. When you think you just can't anymore, read the success stories of those who did.
If you get a craving for salty foods and the crunch aspect, have some carrots and celery on hand and a light salad dressing. Dip the veggies in the dressing.
Hunkering for sweets? Try an apple with cheese, or yogurt with fresh fruit of your choice. Works wonders!
