Anyway, I woke up early this morning to get a jump on a loooong work day. I immediately thought of ways to treat myself for being such a great worker--maybe starting with a large Diet Coke and two sausage burritos at McDonald's, some chips and salsa during rehearsals for the Australia/New Zealand convention, and perhaps a Fast Break candy bar (my personal favorite).
Guess what? You'll never guess...
I decided the best way to treat myself is to follow my plan. Drink water, eat small meals every few hours, and update my blog.
Go me! Go you! Thanks for your love and support--it really makes a difference.
P.S. A dear friend shared some insights from her personal journey. I think she wouldn't mind me sharing some of those with you.
- Eat for taste & for physical need but NOT to make up for what I don’t or didn’t have at some point in my life. Food won’t address those things.
- Force closes the heart. In other words, when I try and force my will to lose weight and keep up the fight, my heart shuts down and there is no joy.
- I eat to leave a situation/emotion. I bolt. Don’t keep leaving myself!!! What’s there to deal with or feel when I don’t bolt? Stay with that and move through it. . . food doesn’t address or fix it.
