Out of avoidance comes guidance

Friday, December 20, 2013

I am working on small changes to better my health. One that I really struggle with is cutting back on sugar. Today, I am trying my best to avoid all of the holiday sugar in my office. I allowed myself one cookie, but am working hard to leave the rest alone.

In an effort to do anything to take my mine off the cookies, I looked up my horoscope for today. It really hit home with me: You made a promise to yourself quite some time ago. (Yes, years ago and every year since) Since then, you have probably thought a lot about that promise, but you haven't done very much to see it through to fruition. (Not much, just a little here and there) But it's not too late. (Thank goodness!) Don't let yourself down. Your intentions are pure and they are good, and what you intend is meant to improve your life in some way. (It will improve it in many ways) Lately you have been thinking a lot more about that long-ago promise and you are seeing in almost wistfully. ( I think about it all the time) But if you make it more of a reality and a priority now, you can make it happen. (I am working hard to make it a reality and a priority, that's why I'm on Sparkpeople!)

This passage speaks directly to my weight loss/better health goals. It certainly feels like it was meant to be today and on my blog felt like a great place to record it.

Happy Holidays!! emoticon emoticon

    Studies have shown sugar being very addictive, (I have this problem too) however I found the longer I stay without touching any sweets the better I feel and when I have a relapse is hard to get back on track.
    This horoscope really hit the spot. Good luck and Happy Holidays! emoticon
