Following the ol’ Weight Watchers food exchange program has proved to be simpler to follow. I don’t weigh and measure but I am keeping up with the food exchange counts.
Now to keep my diet brain quiet concerning … the SCALE.
More from Steve #29:
Fat people make choices that keep them fat.
Fit people make choices that keep them fit.
All of us choose to be fat or fit.
No one forces us to eat the way we eat or exercise or not.
Fit people make conscious food choices at every meal. Fat people eat UNconsciously and emotionally.
When fat people make food choices, they choose the wrong foods while promising that tomorrow will be different. Of course, tomorrow never comes
Fit people enjoy meals far more than fat people because there is no guilt involved.
Critical Thinking Question: Are most of your choices around health and fitness more conscious or UNconscious???
Action Step: Choose today to make only world class choices in your eating and exercise, knowing that your ongoing choices are the foundation of your habits, and your habits will determine your results.
Yesterday was an emotional day with neighbor ML. Our favorite neighbors are both passed 80 … he’s in great health, she is in good health but memory is slipping. She called me 3 times in a row to tell me the same thing. Ahhh … that’s OK. But she didn’t remember calling 1, 2, 3 times. Tugged at my heart.
I chose to get a hot cup of tea and counted not only to 10 but way pass 50 … just to move on and NOT eat. This was very much a conscious decision.
When will eating quit being my first instinct to emotional tugs???
I have chosen to walk 55 minutes today. I’m starting to like the way I feel … when I’m done.
PS … today’s home improvement project is scrubbing clean all the hall, bedrooms and bathroom trim in preparation for painting them this week.
Change your mind … and the rest WILL follow.
Coz … I want to be ME.
