Feeling positive and hopeful today. Walked for 1/2 hour at the Y. Didn't count calories, but ate healthy things ~ tried to watch the portions. Bought some fresh fruit and vegies for when the munchies strike. Ignored the call of the cookies and candy bars I passed by. Told myself that giving in to that would prolong my reaching my goal. I slept better last night ~ felt rested today ~ I think I can fight the urge to do the wrong thing when I am better rested. I know ~ it was just one day of doing pretty good ~ but one day at a time!!
I turn 50 in Aug. Maybe I can give myself a new and improved healthy me to start the next half of my life.
One day at a time ~ never giving up!!
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance. (From Karen31's post)
Way to go! You know, what got me started was turning the big 50. When I was 49.5, I decided I wasn't going to spend my 50s being as fat as I was in my 40s. It was a good decision. You CAN give yourself the gift of health.
Glynne - you sound energized! Keep that sleep up, it makes a world of difference.. I believe in a MIN of 8 hours of sleep a night.. good habit to get into I had a hard time giving up chocolate, but now I can look at it, smell it, and still walk away from it (it also helps that chocolate is the worst for IBS). Keep it up
