Hi y'all...I never really went away from here....I just stopped posting for a bit.
I've been on a bit of a spiritual journey over the last few months, trying to figure out all the usual mid-life stuff like: Is my life the way I want it? Am I headed in the direction that I want my journey to go? I determined that, while many many things in my life are great, other things could use some perking up, like my career.
So..I am headed back to college in a couple of weeks to train for a totally different career than the one I currently have. It's in the medical field which really excites me!
Another big change I am working on is my body image. I've made some good progress! However, while I've been learning to love my body, I have not thought about food...which has led to a 20 lb weight gain in the last two months through many binges. I am not physically comfortable at all!
I know that fad diets, commercial companies, pharmaceuticals, etc., are not the way I want to go. I truly want this to be a LIFESTYLE change...where I can eat anything in moderation.
So, my plan is very simple:
1. drink more water
2. eat until comfortably full (not stuffed!)
3. move my body
4. continue to love my body
5. BE CONSISTENT.
I think #5 is going to be the hardest.....
