It's a brand new week!

Saturday, October 29, 2011

In retrospect, last week was a challenge. What was challenging about it? Well, I didn't eat well, I went over my calories almost every day and as a result I felt like blah! However, an important part of this journey is self-reflection . . . something we all know is important and we all dread at times. So when I reflect on last week I learning a few things. I didn't eat well and I went over my calories on several days AND on those days I didn't plan my meals ahead of time like I usually do. For me, the end of a successful day includes planning for the next day. I wasn't committed to this last week and it was quickly reflected in my food tracker, calorie count and the way I felt physically and emotionally. So now I have a choice . . . keep bemoaning a bad week or shedding that negative attitude and starting fresh. Guess what, I choose to start fresh. It's a whole new week. A clean slate on which to create and enjoy each day as the adventure it is. I can hardly wait to share my success!

    You seem pretty clear-eyed about what happened and you have a strategy and the tools to implement change. Sounds like a plan!

    I really want to let my days be filled with God's will and stop filling my God hole with food. I really appreciate your sharing about "shedding negative attitudes..."
    I have come too far to stop now.. Maria
