I am tired my friends, so I will keep this post short and sweet. A week went by and what seemed impossible is now behind me. I want you to understand that making a commitment to change is a choice that requires work. I feel it everyday, most of my day feels good though. I have been eating many fruits and vegetables but my nuts (cashews, pistachios and almonds) give me the fullness that I need to cope. The workouts are hard at times but they get easier with time and they don’t feel as draining. My water intake is very high and it makes me feel refreshed and staying hydrated fuels my energy. I am proud to have completed week one and am excited to see what is ahead. Good night.
Yo, today was a good day! I decided that it was going to be and so it was. I had all of my herbs during the day, I walked for 30 minutes and ate clean all day. I actually had some delicious KALE with a raw dressing that was FANTABULOUS or maybe I was just hungry as hell (either way) it worked out. I am not going to get all holy righteous and tell you that this is easy for me, because it is not. I have been on a roller coaster for years with my self destructive eating habits and am working on making healthy eating a habit. It’s a battle for me just like it is for you, but I am never going to quit trying. Throughout the day I can’t tell you how many times I am tempted by one of these demonic commercials or the smell of something that JUST CAN’T BE GOOD! I just close my eyes, meditate, hum a song to myself and sometimes even just pinch myself to remember the goal, damnit. I am battling years of programming here: from a mother that would force me to clean my plate to the society wrecking monster of commercialism that capitalizes on those that eat poorly. Anyways, I didn’t want to get too heavy for you, I am trying to get away from that, literally. But I just wanted to share so that you would know that it is more common than you think; you are not alone…just look around. Ciao.
