Sometimes I get upset with myself for not making too much progress. I put in the effort, but it doesn't stick. Yes, it is a lifestyle change I am going for. I want to care for my body, but my brain drives me back to my old habits.
Nighttime eating is my number one habit that keeps coming back. Evening meds need to be taken with food. A small snack is called for this is why I fall back into nighttime gnawing. So from now until Easter I will prepare a snack to take with my meds.
Some good changes I have made. I am a food snob so the candy at the check will not do, I have to make a special trip to the organic Chocolate shop where I only need a piece or two at a time, not a whole bag. Besides it is pricy.
Soda used to be the norm, now it is the exception. Most soda is too sweet, so I have moved onto seltzer and soda like GUS or Fentimans for ginger ale or cola. I can only tolerate about 4 ounces of regular birch beer or sarsaparilla. But wait, I can get a sarsaparilla tea. I do like herbal tisanes or spa water. The only other soda is tonic water because of the quinine for pain, a couple of ounces usually work. On the rare occasion of eating out water or just one good strong cocktail is my choice.
Most processed food is a thing of the past in this house. Wholesome food is needed for healing. Meals are made from scratch. Haven't moved onto making bread though.
Okay so some good changes are now habits. Looking at what has been accomplished gives me hope. More changes can be made.

Living within our means.
For the changes I have made.
There is a proper balance between not asking enough of oneself and asking or expecting too much.
