Action --> start, stumble, start again!

Sunday, June 27, 2010

I've been doing very well eating primarily from the garden -- greens of every kind galore! -- and yet I am also struggling with sugar and carb cravings that are HARD! I have given in a couple of times. emoticon

Anyone who has any thoughts about "how to get off sugar," I'd be all ears. Last year, somehow, I was able to just...stop.

I discovered that water increases your metabolism by nearly 30%. I'm having another glass this very moment!

I got on the scale mid-week and the news was good -- and I'm hoping to keep it that way for when I weigh in on Wednesday.

Even though the scale is going in the right direction, I tend to feel discouraged when I'm not happy in my body. I went to the dance last night and found myself feeling "thick." Yes, I can move, yes, I can groove, and yes, I can dance...and yet I am also feeling stout in the middle.

More dancing, more walking, more greens, more water.
I'm off on a walk right now!
Be well.

    I've replaced sugar/sweets with fruit. I don't know how it happened, but I don't even think about sweets anymore.

    Have a great Sunday!
