I can't believe it's been a week since I've written a blog! Last week was kind of a downer week but now I'm back on track and moving towards those fitness goals.
I've been doing a lot of reading on nutrition and have switched breakfast to whole steelcut oats with almonds and raisins
. I'm going to focus on cutting out sugar from my diet this week. Today I saw someone in a skintight tube dress which actually looked good on her and wondered if she realized how lucky she was that she didn't have any weight loss struggles..then I reminded myself that she probably has other things that she doesn't like about herself since all of us have that self-critic inside us. And then I reminded myself not to be so hard on myself. Which brings me to the thought that every time I've been successful at weight loss is when I've been happy, contented and busy and focusing on health as a small part of life. When life isn't as great, I start focusing on controlling food intake which actually leads to weight gain due to midnight snacking..which is really not a healthy way to go!
So..in order to change that whole cycle I'm going to worry more about getting to that happy, contented busy place so the health part of it comes automatically if that makes any sense.
