To Wake Up Easily.

Monday, July 08, 2013

15. To wake up easily.

We started a new weight loss contest at work Monday. The first three days, I was starving all the time. I tried not to snack as much as usual, but was so hungry all the time. I kept eating lots of fruits and veggies and reduced my sweets intake, and stopped eating when I was full. On the fourth day, I noticed things getting better. I wasn't hungry all the time! emoticon The fourth day also happened to be Independence Day emoticon emoticon , so I had the day off. That meant I got lots of rest! I slept away much of my weekend (as usual), but this morning... ah, this morning! I woke easily! I have not had caffeine for two days, have gotten lots of rest, and have eaten somewhat OK. I am excited about walking to work this morning, if the weather lets me, and so I am awake and raring to go. What a wonderful feeling!! It is so much better than having my mind wake up, but be unable to open my eyes for half an hour or drag my body out of bed for an hour. What wonderful freedom!

Here's to those crazy fruits and veggies! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon


To help SPARK the fire I need to get back on track, I plan to post a new reason every day for 30 days reminding me why I want to live healthier and lose weight. I have not done this for a while, but am picking up where I left off.

15. To wake up easily.
14. I want to be my own inspirational story.
13. It feels so much better to be in control of my sugar addiction than to be controlled by it.
12. More small clothes fit in the washer/dryer than big clothes.
11. With more strength, greater flexibility, and less weight, I may find myself in less pain.
10. When I am outside more, I am sick less.
09. To reduce my rising cholesterol levels.
08. To be a positive influence on my diabetic husband.
07. I hate my double chin.
06. So I can easily reach my goal of finishing the 2014 Fight for Air Climb in under 40 minutes.
05. Regular exercise clears my head and evens my moods.
04. I feel more in control of my life when I take care of myself.
03. I liked it better when I fit in L shirts instead of XL.
02. When I exercise regularly, I have more energy.
01. When my face is thinner, I have a prettier smile.
