my mind playing tricks on me

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

Each day as i try to get this eating right it seems my mind wants to play with me. i know its a psychological tug of war where i'm trying to eat right but thoughts of unhealthy things come to mind. this is where my self control and discipline has to kick in and these are things that i'm striving to become better at. i'm easy to give in to a cookie or some chocolate even when i have a healthy alternative in front of me.

I started swimming lessons yesterday and i'm so excited. I can't wait to be able to swim a lap so i can incorporate this into my exercise regimen.

    That's the problem we all deal with. If possible, focus on the things you CAN have. For example, pick one treat to have each day, or a group of treats all within the lower calorie range which you can alternate. So then each day you can have a piece of dark chocolate or a pudding or a whole bunch of strawberries - whatever makes you happy. Then you feel like you're not depriving yourself, and your brain won't rebel so much.
