Lost in translation.
Lost in translation…
Wellness: A large monster that lives in a well.
Exercise: Wasn’t “The Last Exer-cism” just released in the theaters for the second time… so no need for me to get involved they’ve got exercising covered.
Eating Clean: I eat my cookies from a very clean plate thank you very much.
PMS: Pro Mastication Syndrome… pretty sure I have that.
As I look over at my cute little peach sticky note reminding me of why I started this whole journey in the first place… all I can see instead of the “1” is a big middle finger. And I actually have lost 3 lbs since I last weighed in, now… it was the three pounds I had put on the two weeks prior… so back to even. Instead of dwelling I will say this… so be it.
In the last month I have a added a few healthy things to my day that are now habits. That was my new focus… to add in the good stuff and stop the feelings of deprivation by taking away stuff. So the new things I am doing: Drinking more water. Added additional Omega 3’s to my diet. Started taking pro-biotics and digestive enzymes. I got it. I feel confident that theses are things I can keep up with. So now adding in the healthier foods.
I made a lasagna full of veggies the other night and it’s delicious. Remember it is about adding in good stuff… so while lasagna is not necessarily the entree of choice for the super slim I feel better about eating it. I have been reading a lot about habit forming/breaking, the psychology of dieting, why it can be hard to lose weight, and of course a considerable amount of tawdry romance… to say the least I have learned a few things:
1. Mind over matter is really the key to change.
2. Habits can change by replacing the old with the new, but hard if you are just trying to get rid of the old.
3. Our own thoughts can be our worst enemy.
4. Goals are great, but they don’t just happen cause you say they are going to happen.
5. And slower is better… that may sound like the tawdry romance talking, but it’s not.
So yet again I start my journey of using food to heal my body, my mind to heal my spirit and my feet to heal my tight pants.
