iT'S MONDAY AND MONDAY IS ALMOST OVER
Monday, March 23, 2015
I never used to think about exercise. Didn't ever (except when getting my body ready for
DD's wedding) think about doing exercise every day. Now I do. And I DO count heavy cleaning as exercise if and only if I sweat while doing it! So whenever you see that activity...you know I've been working hard.
And something else too. I used to always think about getting as many sweets and bready carbs as possible. My scale was not my friend. Now it is. Even when I get on it after eating at a buffet and we know the salt content of THOSE FOODS!!!! Even then, I take the numbers as a sign of what action I need to take. Drink more...watch my calories more...exercise more...whatever action is necessary.
So although I would dearly dearly love to be able to eat as much food a my tummy would hold, I am no longer willing to suffer the consequences...nope, no more. And, that makes me sad sometimes...like today. Trying so hard to shake those blues....remembering the day I cried in the grocery store b/c I would not allow myself to buy croissants! Yes, I have to accept these emotions as part of my healing and part of my new life...and embrace them...and go on.
So onward I go.
