Learning to Eat Right Again and a Revelation

Monday, November 12, 2012

So I am having some revelations lately. I know my nutrition and exercise have both been lacking. I know I have made excuses, but I am ready to get my crap together.

I am on an adventure to figure out what is going to work for me. I have been trying to stay away from processed foods as much as possible. I have found that I am satisfied with whole foods. I am doing unlimited fruits and vegetables, trying to listen to my body as far as when to eat. One thing I have realized is that I am happier and fuller with the whole foods. If you think about it, this makes perfect sense.

I was going to walk at lunch today, but totally forgot my shoes at home. I was determined to not let that stop me and be defeated. When I got home from work, I put dinner in the oven and decided to go walking with my dog.

Well, halfway through our walk, and far from home, the sky opened up and the rain came pouring down! At first, I felt so defeated and hung my head down and trudged along. Then I looked ahead of me to my dog, and he was so happy to be walking in the rain. And it hit me... I wasn't defeated. I still was getting my exercise in and not even a little rain was going to stop me. At that moment, I held my head high and kept walking....if my dog can do it, so can I.

Great start to the week, and looking forward to a great rest of the week.
