Today I begin again.....

Tuesday, June 19, 2018

I am an emotional eater. I am working to correct this. I did not do well again yesterday.

Today I begin again.....

I have let food rule my life.

Today I begin again.....

I have limited mobility and tend to use that as a crutch.

Today I begin again.....

I am not in good health. I have let that keep me from doing all I can do to lose weight and improve my quality of life.

Today I begin again.....

I can do this. I intend to do this. I will do this.

Today I begin again.....

I have been practicing mindfulness in my every day life. Mindfulness teaches us to live in the moment and appreciate everything around us today.

I learned that it is good to have goals. Goals focus on the future. Through the mindfulness exercises I have learned that I need to set intentions. I have also learned there is a difference between the word plan and the word intention.

Today, I plan to get my menu done for the next 2 weeks. This implies that I might not get this done today.

Today, I will get my menu done for the next 2 weeks. This tells my brain that I am going to do this today. It reinforces that it is not an option.

Planning to do something is a goal. A goal is in the future. My focus needs to be on what I can control today.

When I first joined Sparkpeople i had a goal to lose 100 pounds by now. That didn't happen. I was really upset about this and felt bad about myself. I forgot to love who I am and enjoy the journey. Yes, I still have a goal to lose 100 pounds. The difference today is that I do not have a deadline. It is a goal for the future.

Today I begin again....

I am focusing on what I intend to do today....

Today I will exercise for at least 60 minutes
Today I will to drink at least 8 glasses of water
Today I will eat healthy at home
Today I will practice mindfulness
Today I will enjoy the journey

These intentions tell my brain that I will do these today and not just plan to do this if time allows.

Today I begin again....
