Getting to know me

Friday, March 31, 2017

It seems weird to say but that's exactly what I'm in the process of doing. I'm learning what to eat in the morning that actually leaves me satisfied until the next meal. I would try and eat what normal people do for breakfast like oatmeal. But I would always feel unsatisfied when I ate that. So why do it? It just had me grazing until the next meal because I was not satisfied! I have found I've developed some dumb habits, mostly listening to what others think I need to be doing in terms of my health. I've learned I'm a people pleaser and that's not always a good thing. If I feel like there's too many things going on where food is a problem, it is perfectly okay to say I won't be attending everything I'm invited to. Its OK to say no sometimes! I'm learning to schedule me into my own schedule. Haha. After the initial reactions from my family they are slowly deciding to help me out in their own ways. My hubby still plants stuff around to mess me up but I've been gathering his treats up and passing them along to my kids and grandkids when he's not looking. The stuff disappears, he thinks I ate it and he has no clue. I can't figure if he's trying to mess me up or test me honestly but either way I've solved my own problem without even having a conflict. I'm getting smarter :) I'm even learning I don't really hate exercise, rather, I tend to get bored while alone. So I need to figure out how to fix that. At least I know what the problem is. I'm learning I actually do love planning my days and meals. I was just too darn lazy to do it before. Yep I was too lazy to do what takes to become the healthy person I can be. So today I walked, planned my food and exercise and even some crochet. Things are looking good these days and I wish I'd have tried getting to know myself long ago!

    I know what you mean about breakfast. I found that I had to make sure I ate at least 7 to 10 g protein (hard boiled egg for example) or I'd be starving and eating before lunch.

    That's a nice blog. You sound very content with yourself. Love how you outsmarted your hubby. It could be he views giving you treats as a way to show love and he is at a loss as to what to do with your changes.
