I am learning that my body shape isn't so much a result of what I eat. It is instead a reflection of how I feel. The last couple of weeks, I have not tracked. I haven't focused on what I can't have. Instead I have focused on enjoying the food I do choose to eat, enjoying activity such as Zumba and walking my puppy. And what have I noticed? My waist did not go up. I seemed to have less reactions to food. And, I had a lot of fun!
This morning I listened to a short video as to how we often allow ourselves to put on weight to protect ourselves from being attractive or desirable to others. I can totally relate to this. Won't go into the personal details, but I did start putting on weight at a time where I did not want to be attractive. I am going to work at healing that aspect of the relationship I have with myself instead of counting calories. I will also focus on what I am most grateful for!
I am huge believer in the law of attraction. We had no plans for this past weekend. We decided to go to the farmers market where we ran into some friends and bought some awesome produce. DH was very happy with the produce. We then went to a race track to watch a couple of guys that DH sponsors. We had a lot of fun. Stopped by my brothers on the way home and had a nice visit. Offered our help for Sunday am for him to move his trailer. Had a nice dinner, then one of DH's friends came over and we had a nice evening down at the fire. Sunday we went back to my bro's thinking to get the work part over so we can enjoy our day. Turned out to be a quick job and then he and his wife invited us to spend the afternoon with them on their boat. Was wonderful!
I am expecting to have a great week! Hope anyone reading this does too!
