Looking forward to feeling better, being healthier and accepting my gluten/casein/soy free lifestyle. Looking forward.

I don't like roller coasters...never did. Not even as a kid. So why I ride the yo-yo weight loss roller coaster is beyond me. It is time to get off. It is time to stop "rewarding" myself with food. What kind of a reward is that? Certainly not healthy. Certainly NOT in my best interest. What kind of a friend would I be if I rewarded someone with POISON? Yet I do it to myself all the time.

Time to begin practicing self-care. Time to take the healthy dreams/ideas I have and make them DAILY habits. Going to bed at a decent hour, planning meals and having my clothes ready are not lofty, undoable goals. Exercising, taking my vitamins and drinking water are things I need to do for ME! They are healthy habits that need to be engrained and I need to begin NOW. Not tomorrow, not next week...NOW! Care to join me? It'll be Fun!

Eating Guidelines from Geneen Roth
1. Eat when you are hungry.
2. Eat sitting down in a calm environment.
3. Eat without distractions.
4. Eat what your body wants.
5. Eat until you are satisfied.
6. Eat (with the intention of being) in full view of others.
7. Eat with enjoyment, gusto and pleasure.

Personal Information:
I'm 52, married (for the 2nd time) and live in NJ. I work as a school administrator in a large, suburban school district. I have been avoiding my goals and dreams and living a little life. I am ready to get back on track physically, spiritually, and emotionally.

Other Information:
Today is going to be a GREAT day!

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

Show me Lord, what I need to change. Please prune my dead works.

    Hi, thanks for commenting on my page about the half marathon training. I am following Jeff Galloway's Walt disney half marathon training plan


    I think it is very doable because of the recovery week after the increase of mileage.

    Hey there! Thanks for visiting my page & reading my blogs... many hugs to you from across the miles. I have just started Eat to Live and haven't been to the grocery store yet, but I have made progress from what I have in the pantry. I'm reading your blogs and finding motivation. I also know what it's like to lose a loved one. Many condolences and blessings to you and your family. Have a great week... Phyllis emoticon emoticon emoticon
