I Can Do This!
Tuesday, August 07, 2012
No, it won't happen tomorrow or the next, but one day at a time I will get better and better. I feel my attitude changing, my willpower is locking into place and you know what? It feels so GOOD! I am making slow steady changes in my eating and I am feeling those changes in a positive way. My endurance is increasing. I can feel muscles under the layers of fat that are just waiting to be seen.
My mindset is so different, I went over my calorie range today (not much, 150 or so calories) but it is ok, it is going to happen sometimes. Normally, I would just say screw it, I've blown my day so I may as well eat whatever now. Not today, I am just moving on to the next day.
I am logging every bite of food I eat and it really does work and helps me to see where I need to make changes. Sodium is a biggie, and so very hard to control. Some days are good and some are bad, I am just trying to balance them out and eventually try to consistantly make it below range.
This is a lifestyle change, NOT a diet!
