Pluses and minuses

Friday, June 29, 2012

So I've been on SP for about two months now and just wanted to take a minute or two to reflect on some simple things I've either added to my life or given up in my time here.

-I've added an extra 1/2 hour to my day. At first I would only get up 1/2 hour early if it was a running day, now I find myself getting up at the earlier time every day.

-I've given up my daily drink after work. I still imbibe, but mostly just on the weekends or one night a week, and I have far fewer drinks when I do. I do miss my daily glass of wine though. *sniff*

-I've added snacking. I bring some fruit and veggies to work with me every day for between meal snacks. If I'm running late in the morning (always) and I forget, I'll opt for a granola bar that I keep in my desk.

-I've given up throwing food away. I've noticed now that I'm really thinking about what I eat, I use up leftovers instead of leaving them in the fridge only to be thrown away. I use an entire loaf of bread before it goes bad. I eat all of the fruits and veggies before they spoil...except I can never seem to use up a bunch of scallions in time. Humph!

-I've added clothes to my wardrobe. Out with the old, in with the...old? Clothes that have been on hangers for a year or two are new again. No more worrying about shirts or pants being too tight. Everything fits nicely again.

-I've given up 11 lbs. Goodbye, 11 lbs...I will not miss you.

    It sounds like you've really been making big changes! I've found it's all those little things that suddenly add up to real , big changes in the long run!

    And good riddance to those 11 pounds. No one needs them!
