Halfway to Goal and Having FUN on the Journey!
My greatest lessons so far:
Every day I re-commit to myself to eat consciously. When I think about reaching for something sweet or salty, I look at what’s going on in my life, in that moment – discomfort, conflict, need for love or comfort – and I’ve learned that I can consciously choose not to give into to those urges to ease my mind.
I’ve learned to eat smaller meals through out the day and not allow myself to get famished. This practice made impulse eating non-existent!
I’ve learned that I actually enjoy cooking, and that I actually CAN cook!
I’ve learned to weigh and document everything I eat, and drink 8 glasses of water a day!!! Thank you SparkPeople!
I’ve learned getting fit doesn’t have to be “hard”. I learned to create an awesome context that includes an empowering story full of rich motivation, and I SHARE it with friends, family and the people I work with. I’m inspired, and guess what? So are they!!!
I’ve learned to log in to SparkPeople everyday and play to make the journey FUN and in GREAT company!
Most of all? I’ve learned to just HAVE FUN!!!
My New Ending on InstagramThis binder holds pages of notes and printouts centered around what I’ve been learning lately regarding living my best healthy life. It is part of an early gift I’ve given to myself. ✍🏻 _______________________________ “The Gift of Permission” — a new blog post. 💛 Link is in my profile.👟Brisk Walk ❄️Cold Temps 🏘 Neighborhood Holiday Decor Going Up ... It was a lovely way to start my day and week! 😍In May we honor those who paid the ultimate sacrifice by dying for our country, but today we honor everyone who signed on the line and said they would do the same if necessary. ❤️🇺🇸 No service is too small to be deserving of my gratitude and so I thank you. . . . #navywife #veteransday #navy #usmc #airfoece #army #coastguard #militaryreserves #nationalguard #godblessamerica #unitedstatesmilitary//Head Held High// Before I decided to take a break from this account I’d written a new blog post about a huge non-scale victory I’ve had recently. ✍🏻 It is posted now and there’s a link to it in my profile. . . . #mynewending #mneblog #holdyourheadup #youareworthit #nonscalevictory #weightloss #weightgain #healthylifestyle #emotionalhealth #mentalhealth #healthblogger #healthblog #em2wl #motherrunner #anothermotherrunner #dontquit #nevergiveup #onestepatatime #keepingitrealI’ve been a bit overwhelmed by scrolling through all the health advice and what is working for everyone and have decided this is what I need right now. 💙 Change requires patience as a person adapts to the new. As a person who has moved every 3-4 years for pretty much all my life I’m familiar with the process. However, it doesn’t always make it easy. 📚 I’ve heard much about this book, and finally decided it was time for me to read it. _______________________________ So, you won’t see me on here for a while, but I have not given up; in fact, my scale is trending downward (for those that follow me for my health journey.) I am continuing the fight...just in a slightly different way right now. 💞 Happy Autumn!//My favorite caffeinated mix in a new mug. // Recently I was asked if there is anything I absolutely won’t give up food-wise in my eating plan. —> My answer: Half n Half in my coffee. 🍶 _______________________________ I gave up flavored, sugar laden creamers years ago, but I will always make Half n Half fit into my food budget. 😍☕️ It’s worth it every time! . . . #nationalcoffeeday #mynewending #mneeats #starbucks #frenchroast #casicielo #seattlesbest #coffeelover #morningcoffee #bestpartofwakingup #afternooncoffee #itscoffeeoclock #darkroast #espresso #dopio #affogato #thisgirlrunsoncoffeeandjesus #sustainablehealth #healthychoices #myfavorite #weightloss #weightgain #planformaintenance #makingitwork #mylife
