Why I'm committed to this journey
Saturday, May 18, 2019
So far my SMART goals are going pretty well. I have 3 pounds before hitting the 170's (a girl can dream, right). I did wind up with a small wrench in my plans - I caught some crazy virus that has left me coughing tons. I haven't been using the mag oil at night just because my body is having to handle medicines at night, and I didn't want to add in one more thing.
But ANYWAY! The journey that I started in January is going well. I love not having stomach problems anymore, and I love not battling intense cravings at night. And something happened today that showed me that I really am committed to this journey.
I was invited to a brunch baby shower. I didn't really want to go, but I wanted to support the mother. So I got up early this morning and had a healthy breakfast. Sure enough, when I got to the event, everything was super unhealthy. Cakes and casseroles and breads, oh my.
But I wasn't even tempted. Not even a little. I had sparkling water and herbal tea and I was perfectly happy.
After the baby shower, I had to go straight to my archery class. I went to the grocery store after that, which meant that I had lunch around 4. And I was ok. Super hungry by that point, because breakfast had been around 7:30, but not hangry. And I had plenty of energy for the archery class.
Honestly, there is nothing I miss. I'm not deprived at all. If I want something, I can have it (as long as it's body appreciated, and I generally don't want the things that make me sick).
Looking forward to seeing how this journey continues to unfold!
