Woo Hoo - 7 Days and Counting...
Tuesday, January 05, 2010
First off, have I mentioned lately how much I love you guys?! I was overwhelmed by the thoughtfulness of all my SparkFriends that left a comment on my last blog entry. I truly appreciate all of the advice, encouragement and support from each and everyone of you - believe me when I say I am taking this very seriously and you are all helping me more than you can know!!
I have been feeling fabulous since I have focused on not binge eating. I have more energy and I don't feel so down. I also have been spending time each day reading from The Spark - this book is AWESOME!! One of things from the book that I am going to incorporate into my life is putting a timeframe on a streak - this streak. Rather than leave it open-ended "I am never going to binge again," I am going to set a mini-goal of 30 days. I have now gone for 7 Days without binge eating; I know I can do this for another 23 days!!
Thanks to some great advice I am also not depriving myself - I am eating what I want, within my daily range. I haven't felt hungry or felt like I'm missing out on anything - what a great feeling!! I'm including a fruit and/or vegetable in every meal, and I'm also trying to get something from each food group into each meal. So far so good!!
This is definitely going to be the year!! I want to hold onto this great feeling and bottle it - LOL!!
Tonight we are going to dinner at El Corral. I've only been there once before, years ago so I'll have to see if they have a website with a menu as I don't really remember what they have to offer. It is my birthday tomorrow - and I am going to be (gulp) 42, so we are celebrating tonight. I also will dine out on Saturday night with the friends. Haven't decided where to go for that one, yet.
I hope everyone has a FANTASTIC day! It's going to be beautiful outside today - I will take my first walk at break at 9am - looking forward to it! Now I need to spend some time catching up with everyone's blogs and such - I've been a busy little bee lately and have missed seeing what everyone is up to! Take Care my friends and thank you so much for everything!!
