10 Non Scale Positives for June

Saturday, June 12, 2010

Today I was taking my dog for a walk around the lake, it was a beautiful day the sun was shining, I was striding along enjoying watching the waterbirds enjoy the recent rain, when i arrived home and realised it had only taken me 40 mintues to do my normal 60 minute loop.
So I got to thinking what other things in my life have changed for the positive without me noticing.
emoticonI'm doing things faster and are no longer "shattered " from a workout as I would have been 6 months ago.
emoticonClothes I couldnt fit into and now comfortable, I can breathe!
emoticonI don't spend all my time thinking about where my next meal is coming from and what it will be. On spark I can eat anything I want as long as I encorporate it into my calorie allowance. THERE ARE NO BAD FOODS
emoticonI have also discovered that I am not willing to spend 460 cals just to have a Gloria Jeans Regular Voltage no matter how much I like them ( i might have a small one once in a blue moon if I realy feel like it.
emoticonI no longer meet friends .............. for coffee
now I meet them for zumba and coffee or paddling and coffee
emoticonIf I don't get to do my exercise sessions .................I feel like I've missed out !
emoticonMy brain is a lot stronger than my body, if I talk myself up,, I can do it
emoticonI don't care as much what people think of me, if my house isn't spotless too bad, if I'm hot I take off my tee shirt and just workout in a crop top (menopausal!) If I'm too hot I don't work as hard, so I stand under the air con and I strip off when i'm hot, I'm going to make every session count.
emoticonOnly I can figure out how to chart my way on this healthy journey, I can get advice and support but I'm responsible for me, what I do is my choice.
emoticonI'm rediscovering fun activities that I had forgotten I really enjoyed, because I was too busy tagging along with my man and my kids doing sports they enjoyed, now sometimes they tag along with me, or I do my own thing

    Terrific post! Wow - I love when people focus on the positive. My favorite part is "only I can figure out how to chart my way". That is what I am working on. Other people do their own thing, and the world is full of challenges and roadblocks (and food pushers) that get in the way. It is up to us - individually - to find out what works for us. And how to maintain a good relationship and gracefully say no to the food pushers.

    Keep up the good work!
