Short post today, Wednesday, April 19th, 2017. Weigh-In Day. 252. No big hurrah, but the pounds are coming down.
These past couple of days have been really good. I’ve been super on point and there’s one element…one key piece….that’s helped me stay the course, sticking to essential nourishment and water:
I’ve been super busy.
This idea of staying busy has proven itself because I’ve been home on vacation with access to the fridge. My “lower vibrational self” would have gone back and forth, back and forth, opening the fridge, opening the cabinets, munching, snacking, fixing random food and eating more and more. But these last couple of days, I’ve been working diligently to build up my etsy store and instagram account for a craft project I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. I have always loved creating. The hardest part, we both know is getting started. No one knows that more than me. I’ve sat around for years, thinking of what I’d like to do, and letting “life” get in the way, mostly because of fear. Fear is a thief. Don’t let it steal your life away bit by bit. Just start. Do something, and don’t worry if it sucks. Focus on the feeling of doing it, not the end result. My product is going to improve. I’m not even concerned about that right now. I’m just happy that I started. I’ve been doing something I enjoy so much that I lose track of time. When you have things like that that you care about, take advantage of them. Do them! These things are what your life is about. They may actually be your calling. And if nothing else, you’ll enjoy yourself a whole lot more, won’t have that guilty sick feeling that you and I know comes right after overeating, and will keep making progress towards your weight loss goal.
So these past few weeks I’ve been reminded that every time I consume overt fats, it throws my numbers off at weigh-in. My prayer is that I can remain focused in the coming days and really start to see a significant difference on the scale. I’m hoping to be a size down by the middle of next month.
Till next time…
