Day 3 already.. well this just must be some kind of record! I am not a resolution junkie.. I am a list making junkie, post-it note junkie, nice pen junkie, and a sharpie junkie. Yes, you are right I am a teacher and the two just might be connected.
Anyways, I do often create start dates for myself where I will proclaim things such as but not limited to, "On Monday I am quitting sugar!" or "Next Monday, I will eat no more chocolate or chips ever, ever again!" and lastly, "On Monday, I will eat only fruits, vegetables, chicken and fish- FOREVER!". At times, I have even thrown away large amounts of food from my cupboards that didn't fit my brand new crazy eating habits. This is sad. What a waste. Inevitably, this may last all of 2 days until something comes up and my brand new lifestyle doesn't fit in and I give in a little then that whole day is "ruined" in my mind, then the whole week and by day 3 or 4 the whole thing is OVER. Then I am so so sad. I tell myself I am weak and that I don't deserve to be happy about my body because I am not "strong enough" to keep up with some crazed standard I set for myself.
Well, thank goodness that tomfoolery is over with! Now, I am just implementing some small changes to help myself feel better and not feel like a lazed sloth. I am doing something to get me moving every day. I am drinking more water and eating more vegetables.
There has been many different days where I physically and mentally feel sick. I can't tell you how many days I have been at school and my stomach feels terrible- probably because I've treated it like a trash can! I am currently not eliminating anything from my diet but I am limiting certain things and know I won't crave them as much soon. It's like detox for a drug addict (except I do not know what that is actually like) but I do know a lot of foods I have been stuffing in my pie hole probably contain enough chemicals to be considered drugs.
I am so excited to be continuing with this new attitude and working on my habits! Lovin' 2014 so far (yaya I know it is only 3 days in out of 365)
I hope everyone has had a great day!
