today was good again! i cant believe it! four fabulous days- the fab four, ha! i didnt officially exersize today, but cleaned the house so hard, i counted it.
spryte, the way i stuck to it on tuesday despite two parties is by keeping in mind my goals (and NOT feelings of deprivation).one very simple goal is to be able to come here each night and give myself a gold star (and not be deluding myself too badly). also, ive been carrying around a list of reminders w/ me everywhere i go, and reviewing them many, many times a day. they include:
i parent better when i eat well.
i deserve to feel good.
halei deserves a mom who feels good.
be with the feelings.
also on this same paper are the goals we are all working on, plus more personal weekly goals (which i would not be able to achieve were i eating poorly). at the bottom i have listed things i look forward to that will be more fun if i feel healthy, such as the new year's party we are throwing. and, everyday i dance in the a.m., regardless of wether i get other exersize or not. i think dancing feeds the same parts of me that sex and food do. even if you feel stiff at first, force yourself, you might loosen up after a song or two and feel fulfilled like never before....or maybe that's just me.
i'm with gully on that hugs and kisses and wow to you for tackling this even when things are challenging, but then again, maybe getting healthy will help you cope, huh?
gully? smeta? are you kidding me? you rocked out to madonna, too? i wish we could get together and dance. that is so rad. which song really makes you move? my favorite is 'get into the groove'. i like a bit of humor in my exersize kwim?
gardenrn- have you read 'the zen of eating'? that is what comes to mind when you speak of visualizing the people who are thin because of poverty.
keep at it ladies! this is exciting.
