Hello everyone, thanks for the great supportive comments!!! I am feeling much much better about things. Yesterday I went to the gym and had a good workout, I then spent a good portion of the evening journaling. I am in the process of making an action plan for myself in 6 months I turn 30, I want to be in a good place to start a new decade. I am setting goals and making a step by step plan of how to reach them. I feel that I am finally setting myself up for SUCCESS!!!
As far as food goes I have decided to make some delicious filling veggie soups or salads to fill me up at work, and practice some discipline when it comes to wheat thins and cheezits...I like how Trina put it that like an alcoholic she can't have just one of anything she shouldn't. I think that is a good way to look at things and it will help me to stay away from the junk. I also agree with Kay, I have had my best success when I give up alcohol for awhile. Alcohol gives us calories with no other nutrition, and it loosens my resolve to lose weight. I saw a quote yesterday from Dr. Atkins that makes a ton of sense to me:
"Here's the problem with all alcoholic beverages, and the reason I recommend
refraining from alcohol consumption on the diet. Alcohol, whenever taken in, is
the first fuel to burn. While that's going on, your body will not burn fat. This
does not stop the weight loss, it simply postpones it." Dr. Atkins
With that said I have picked myself up from my cheating ways, and I have decided that NO cheating is ok. My goal is to be fit, slim, healthy, toned and cheating simply won't help me get there. I am gonna work very hard to get back into the zone and get away from emotional eating. I hope everyone had a nice weekend, I will talk to you guys later :)
