It has been a busy day with my weekend guest. He is 1 and busy busy busy and the yorkie is jealous jealous jealous!!! We have laughed at him we have wanted to sit him outside. Went to the farmers market to get veggies for next week. I am slowly trying to convert to organic veggies and meat. I am reducing my processed food. But I am not totally eliminating anything. I am too fickle for that.
I have been pondering my week and areas that I am struggling in. My SP friend said something that reminded me of some of my challenge with weight loss
KRICKET4 said "there really is so much more to this weight-loss-thing than simply losing weight. Actually I think, losing the weight is a direct result of putting the rest of your life in order" I had to read and re-read that a few times. I knew that to be true but this day it spoke life to me! Thanks
I need to have some balance. I start off ok but I can quickly move right back out of balance if I am challenged in any way. I have This extends to my job as well. I struggle with staying on point. I put things off until I get to crises mode then I am focused but stressed. That leads to choosing less healthy foods or to eat mindlessly. That stress level also throws off my sleep pattern which in turn takes away my energy to exercise.
I have to start to self correct quicker when I get into this vicious cycle.

My first order of business in the morning is to restore order to my room. I have come home and just push things out of the way. No my brain cannot handle it anymore.
I can and I will do this!

    What wise words she said! I have to remember that too. Sometimes, I'm so busy trying to fit all of it in that I forget to take time to just be me and let things go! Keep up the great work!

    For those times where I go 'off balance' (often late afternoon for me), wearing a bracelet has really helped! I don't usually wear one at all, so it being there is like a knot of string around my finger, constantly reminding me to do the right thing.

    About NOT eliminating processed things altogether - I reckon that comes under the heading of "moderation". Getting obsessed about ANYTHING isn't a good way to be - I like your realistic attitude there.

    Your weekend visitor must have been delightful though - little kids are SO great!

    Sounds like you are having one (or more) aha moments...a real breakthrough...keep diving in to see where this exploration takes you...Yes - i agree... -- With SparkPeople all of a sudden it is about getting healthier and the weight loss become secondary and a wonderful side effect of getting healthy!

    I think you have the "order" thing right. I have been off work for two weeks (a working vacation), and I feel like I need to get back to work so that I can have some order back in my life.
