Day 7 - Wednesday

Wednesday, November 07, 2012

Well, I slipped up a bit today.....hanging out with a new mother who is craving Dunkin Donuts isn't necessarily the best idea. I did choose an egg white flat bread sandwich, but the potato chips and sweetened iced coffee went along a little too easily. Now my stomach is upset, and my energy is low ~ but I am sort of glad that I feel this way. If I were to eat junk and feel good afterwards, what would I learn from that? I feel much better when I aim for 64-80oz of water a day, and focus on healthier food choices. Exercise always makes me feel better, and I did manage to get in some physical activity today as well. I have to constantly remind myself ~ WORK in PROGRESS, not perfection!

    Yes, learning to recognize my subtle improvements has been incredibly HUGE for me. Without taking the time to appreciate this awareness would probably make me feel at a total loss ~ and I'd probably give up before I ever really started trying. I guess that's what I learned from turning 40; even though I might be older than most of my friends and coworkers, I have so much more patience and understanding with myself and others than I used to. Another thing I have come to realize is that as I focus more and more on what I WANT to be (i.e. healthy) - the unhealthy things I used to resist have fallen away. I used to think about how much I didn't want to succumb to a slice of pizza....all day, every day. Guess what? I'd end up having a torrid affair with at least 2 slices of pizza, and feel guilty about it for long afterwards. I don't think so much about pizza anymore :-)

    Recognition is so important. Simply realizing these changes was BIG for me, how about you? emoticon emoticon
