Day 17

Thursday, March 29, 2012

Another day down and I'm still on track. WOW! I'm actually doing this. Changing my life. Reworking my health. Wow! Wow!! As I review this I am amazed. If I keep doing this I am going to be healthy. I'm going to get my cholesterol and high blood pressure back to normal limits. Wow! I'm eating myself to health. Just like I was eating myself to the most UNhealthy life I could be living.

And why was I eating that way? It will be no surprise to hear that I was hurt and scared. Hurt that the man I loved found a new love. Scared that after moving to an area I love, my job situation is the worst it's EVER been. I think more hurt that scared. So I have been literally stuffing my emotions. Such a sad state to be in. Now, if I eat in a healthy way then I can get stronger and maybe I can pull myself together to be happy. It isn't that I am UNhappy. Just that I am not my normal self, and I'm less happy.

I'm ready for equilibrium.

    Hmmm, So I'm going to repeat a sentiment that is often shared, but very difficult to practice. Love yourself now. Don't wait to be "healthy" to realize how much you mean to yourself and to be happy. You obviously think you are worth the effort, or you wouldn't be on this journey. Find a reason to celebrate the moment: I didn't shove the whole block of cheese in my mouth, I didn't eat for the sake of eating, I took the stairs, I parked at the end of the lot, I bought a new veggie or fruit to try (these are a few of mine).....Finding behaviors and celebrating them now makes it so much easier to see the happy things. Not that sad, mad, hurt, scared or any other emotion is bad, but left unchecked it can be. I think we tend to be so critical of ourselves, holding us to a higher standard than we hold anyone else.

    Celebrate you being you, regardless of your job or what others think.

    I am so proud and excited that you pushed through and are working on this journey to a healthier you.
