Fresh Start

Monday, August 20, 2012

I just love starting things fresh on Mondays. It's like the slate is clean again. I have decided not to do anymore crash dieting. Hopefully that will stop the binges that follow because I just can't handle the restriction anymore. I have to lose the all or nothing mentality as well as find balance in all things. I guess I've never been ok with gray. It's either black or white - there's nothing in between. This thinking cannot apply to lifestyle when it comes to diet/food/exercise. You can't make a lifestyle change and say that you'll never eat ____ again. Especially when it's something you love. With that said, I need to be realistic and just make better decisions on a daily basis. This isn't a race, there's isn't a competition, and there is no deadline. I also need to stop letting the scale determine my success. As I continue to incorporate healthy habits, I should yield the results I'm seeking. This time around, I'm going to enjoy the journey to good health. Healthy eating isn't a punishment for being fat, it's a reward for being alive.

    Great blog! I'll use the SP tracker to be able to have something that I really want, every so often.

    I had to go gluten free recently, and I tracked down what I needed to have to make my own gluten free brownies. I track the calories, and I can have them-guilt free. Now, my sis wants me to make those brownies more often!

    You are on the right track!

    People use the word "babysteps" wrong. They think like that kid's game, Mother May I - "take 5 babysteps forward". But real babysteps mean that sometimes you fall on your butt and sometime on your face but you always get back up and keep moving forward!

    No one learns a new dance routine all at once. You master little pieces of it bit by bit until one day it all finally comes together. Keep on working at it and one day you'll have it mastered!
