The road taken - Every day new day
Monday, August 10, 2015
So... Being on the road is really hard for my "diet" comfort, really hard for my Rhythm.
Steady On, for me, requires a kind of PRACTICE, a kind of discipline and rhythm and momentum. There are habits that work for keeping my food choices on point for weight loss. There are habits of behaviors that keep me centered and keeping up with daily tasks while keeping my moods and anxieties kind of steady...
I still turn to food when other soothing attempts fail. Food takes the edge off.
But only at first.
I REALLY REALLY
I mean I REALLY REALLY REALLY WANT
to take off more layers of cushion and weight.
to be more lean and muscular
to integrate activity
to learn NEW STEPS, NEW WAYS of BEING ME....
ONE DAY AT A TIME
IT CAN BE DONE
It's easier when there's not conflict or drama, when I can plan and track my meals...
When I have peace of mind... and time to connect with
You know who you are.
I made a lot of 'right' choices today.
But i made some bad ones too.
I knew it was a bad idea to buy a Honey Lavender Scone on the way home tonight
I knew it was not likely to stay in the bag til breakfast tomorrow
I ate it in the elevator on the way up (for crying out loud)
I woofed it!
Woofing is a very clear sign.
I threw out the unwooFed remainder in the hall garbage can
and went into my mom's apartment
Too many days being a guest in various peoples homes
Too many meals out
I'll be traveling back to my regular routine SOON
I have loved seeing people and visiting
It's been a lot of fun
Walking and chewing gum at the same time?
Still not able to do that, I guess.
