Progress this week so far
Friday, July 25, 2014
I have restarted the steps that produced success for me when I lost more than 60 pounds after having my son. Right now my goal is not weight loss because I am 4 months pregnant but to be healthy. Healthy is better anyway and those habits, will produce weight loss. I am back on the taming your sweet tooth plan. Week one. So far I have done well tracking my sugar intake. This week it hasn't been too bad. I do well when I pay attention and am accountable to myself. Step one in the get healthy plan.
Last night was a horrible night but maybe it wasn't as horrible as I thought. I needed it maybe to help me realize that I need to take care of me and stop putting others first (other than my 2 children). I need to make sure I am doing what I need to do for me. That is working out, eating right and spending time with God. All three of which have been neglected recently. I have been feeling depressed and I am sure it is mostly because I have let my spiritual life go. I need to get that together. Anyway, because of what happened last night, I realized that I need to get back on track with working out and eating by taking small steps. Today I did yoga and restarted my first steps of 100 days to real food. My first step is to eat at least 2 fruits and/or veggies per meal. I also take a greens supplement from It works! every day. This supplement has 8+ servings of fruits and veggies that make me feel so much better and give me energy. They are also natural enough that I can take them pregnant because they are food.
I need to and am getting my priorities straight. My spiritual life and health have to be number one. I cannot take care of my kids (especially the one I am currently growing inside me) without these things. So to cover the spiritual part, I got a book called "God's promises for Women". It would be best for me to be reading the straight word and I plan to do that too but I really need to dig into God's promises for me. So I know this wasn't a profound entry and just had update type information but this is my AA meeting place. I am going to overcome this sugar addiction and get healthy. No matter how long it take. This is somewhat stream of consciousness and selfish but I have attended my meeting.
