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!!

    El Corral cheese bread! Ahhhhh!!! :-) Glad to hear you are doing so well. It is going to be a great year for you, I can just tell. 42? Heck that is nothing! I'm turning 52 this month and loving life! It is all good.

    Good luck with your streak! I'm trying to stay away from the chocolate!

    Take care,
