AM- weights at the gym but wow, I really wanted to stay in bed this morning. Proud that I got up anyway.
I am finding that voice that lures me toward old habits is still there but there is a new voice that says- "Nope, that was the old way. Remember the plan."
It has become a mantra almost to me now.
Eating a lot of steamed veggies throughout the day is really helpful to me and fills me up a lot. But I realized yesterday, it isnt about fullness for me- it is about a craving and fulfilling it. After work I wanted something "sweet" and even though I go for something healthy usually- this time I stopped myself and thought- Are you hungry? If some steamed veggies were in front of you would you eat them to help your hunger? The answer was NO. I wasnt hungry. I was craving something sweet. I am stressed at work and granting myself a little something sweet makes me feel like I am caring for myself in some way. It is an old habit. And one that is time to put to rest.
Instead I got a cup of tea and read a magazine.
Planning my food has been really helpful for me this week as well. Last night I was reaching for something and my boyfriend said to me, "You look so beautiful. Your arms look so beautiful."
I think I am getting stronger and it is starting to show!
