Fighting the Good Fight
Saturday, August 15, 2015
Good lord it has been challenging the last week and a half probably. I swear when you decide to make a change in your thought life for the better (any change in your life for the better actually) it seems things come from out of nowhere to get you off course. I have to talk to myself constantly. Not necessarily out loud, but sometimes yes! Lol.
I am human so I don't so called 'do right' all the time. I wish. But I am more aware and catch myself when thinking negatively more often. It is also nearing TOM and we (women) all know how our emotions get during this time. I have felt depressed, hopeless, like 'who cares?', etc. all in a given day. Those are just feelings, which are motivated by thoughts. So I have had to work really hard but I haven't passed all the tests. I've gotten irritated very easily by those around me and just in general. It lets me know I need to fill myself up with positive things whether a book, or something honey! Lol!
I also didn't make the best food choices this week but I still lost 2.2 lbs and got out of the 230's! Yay!! I am just eating less. Really nothing else at this point. And I don't mean starving myself b/c I don't believe in that. Just eating less. Period. But I just had to vent that this is not easy! This whole 'change your thoughts, change your life' thing. It is a constant battle in my head. And I may lose some battles, but I will win the war! :)
