Practice the victories.

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

I have been working and recommitting to this process again. I make it closer to my desired goal each time. But alas I struggle to stay the course. Eventually I get distracted and my inner toddler comes out shouting about what she wants, while my inner 8 year old States that it is not fair while my inner teenager pouts it doesn't matter anyway.

From time to time I manage to calm myself down and get to work.

I watch Biggest loser from the Internet. I don't remember maybe week 5 one of the coaches said "Practice the victory".

Isn't this a great idea. My mantra can be I am becoming stronger by practicing victory. No more bemoaning what I cannot have. I can have victory and it is totally fair.

I am also planning an ellimination diet for my son so we can see if alergies are causing his stomach issues.

My son leaves in a week to serve a two year mission in Peru. Most big changes will wait until after that.

    Sure hope you are/were successful with the elimination diet. When my son was tiny, he had perpetual severe eczema. I tried elimination diets galore since he was exclusively breastfed. But, I never tried all the things all at once. Finally we were able to have an ImmunoCAP series of tests prescribed. I would not have gotten to the bottom of it without it as his list was (and still is at 14) extensive. But oh the joy of seeing his skin clear up at long last! I could finally kiss my little guy on the cheek. We need to test again, but our insurance is not the same so it will have to wait until we have more money saved for our deductible. Anyway, best wishes!

    Excellent! It's true. How we see ourselves changes how we move, what we strive for and how hard. I think... it was when I realized I could start eating and moving the way I imagined myself in "victory" that I started doing it consistently. I love this idea. Thanks for sharing. Justyna

    I hear you!
    It is tough to make and honor a commitment to one's self. Lots of stuff gets in the way, including ourselves.

    Wow You are stronger than me, letting a child of mine go away for three weeks was challenging never mind for two years.
