Day 12~

It was great to get back to my 5 Miles of Advanced Walking again today. 10,000 plus steps total! Although, I must say that I was reeeeaaaallllllyyyyy sore from scrubbing floors at my daughters house. She has hard surfaced floors throughout the entire house. I did it all on my hands and knees, I AM NOT COMPLAINING, because, I get a lot of pleasure out of cleaning. With 7 people in the household, the floors were ready for a good scrubbing. My daughters baby is a week old and so the floors were ready to be done. I did a lot of organizing and cleaning, too, so lots of squatting for that. Anyway, I did my 5 MIles even though I could barely walk this morning. It felt good to get back to hand weights and the stretchy, too.

My appetite it still really low and I am not sick at all, neither am I fighting anything off anymore. I am going to chalk it up to the inner healing work I am doing, because as I release negative perceptions it is healing how I see myself, which is exactly what my goal is. It is really amazing to be under calories except for one day here and there. When I say that I was a compulsive eater and tended to overeat and eat to fast, I am not exaggerating one bit.

My new Aria scale came but I don't have it set up yet, because I have just been on the go. I plan to get that done, so I can weigh myself Monday. I don't feel like I have lost any more weight, though, by the way my clothes fit. So, I am totally fine with staying the same weight if I am progressing in how I view myself. I need to eat something else now, but I am not hungry. It is so strange and interesting to feel like this.

It was a nice day all the way. I ate out with my son and one of my daughters and her family tonight. We ate at Cheddars and I had the veggie plate. I couldn't begin to finish it all as it was way too much. I used to eat it all and then feel too full. I brought half of it home. It feels really good to be in control instead of feeling controlled by food.

Something I became very aware of today is that "time" is my god (idol). I am tempted to live my life by the clock instead of by intuition. Of course, there is a balance to strike in it all, because I don't want to be late (rude), but I seemed to wake up to a new level of understanding of how time needs to be put in to perspective and the possibility of doing so seems real now. Just the stress I put myself under, in regards to time, is obviously adding to the weight, eating issues I have had for a long time.

Blessings to all my Spark Friends! emoticon
