I am Struggling!!! But No Quitting

Friday, August 16, 2013

This morning, I devoured 2 huge slices of frosted chocolate cake filled with extra pecans...oopsy! Yes, it was deliciously sweet and yummy but I will pay dearly. The cake was just there staring me in the face as if saying "taste me just this once will not hurt" (lol). I felt so guilty afterwards, until I decided that would have to count as breakfast. I know, right...what a wasted breakfast! I skipped lunch not intentionally though, I slept pass the lunch hour. Then I got in a bit of exercises by cleaning and decluttering the house. For dinner, I substituted my sugar with honey on garlic cheese toast. Also, I had a few very thin slices of peppered turkey, two potato cakes and fresh spinach. I was not happy with my choices because it was based on my wants rather than my needs.

Lesson: I will have to practice giving up the things I want and make healthy choices instead. I must practice "thinking and breathing" Health Choice!

New Motto- "If I fail; I will fail Forward" I will not tackle myself for my failures but I will seek help, rectify and keep it moving.

Affirmation: "If it is to Be; It will be up to Me" I can access all the valuable information and tools available, but unless I take action to make the changes things will remain the same and all the value goes down the drain.

Comforting Thought: I am holding hands as I walk my journey. I am holding hands with others who understand my pain, frustrations and fears. I am holding hands of many who feel my pain along with their pain and struggles. I am holding hands with others who have "been there and done this" before. I am holding hands with people who have compassion, love and care. Last but definitely not least, I am holding hands with the man above who cares and love us all.

Gratefulness: I am grateful today for learning to love unconditionally. I am grateful that I am allowed to digest another day which is yet another new beginning! I Am Grateful For Sparks People. emoticon

    This journey takes time and there will be days when things don't go quite right but we just keep trying to make the healthy choices day by day and we will reach our goals.

    That is a difficult one when others are bringing food into the house. Maybe find some healthy dessert recipes that you could have. I love the sugar free fudge pops from Aldis. They satisfy my sweet tooth and only have 50 calories! emoticon emoticon

    Linda, Thanks and that's a good one. It's sort of like "out of sight; out of mind" and that does work. Here's the thing, at my house it's hard when you have others who have a sweet tooth and you have to pass their territory. Those sweets thrown in your face by others makes it ever so painful. How do you refrain from the tempting crumbs of others?

    I have to ban sweets from my house. I just cannot have it around or I will also eat it.
