Flipping the Switch

Sunday, October 9, 2011

I am so overwhelmed by the comments on my last post. I seriously have the best readers and it is no wonder that I was doing so well when I was checking in regularly with you guys. You make everything sound possible. Thank you all so much for your love and support. I feel so blessed to have received your encouragement.

Many of you gave me recommendations that I should get to a good place emotionally before I try to tackle my body issues. I've considered this and come to the conclusion that I feel better emotionally when I treat my body well. I've never regretted eating well or felt worse after a workout than I did before. I'm hoping that in an effort to take care of my physical self, that my emotional self will take care of itself.

Tomorrow morning I'm starting anew. I'm going to count calories and am setting my goal at 1800. Even if I go over my goal, it will be a big step for me just to keep a journal of everything that I'm eating. I'm also making a goal to workout at least 3 times this week. I'm hoping to work in a kettlebell routine during a few naps and on a few evenings head down to the gym to meet with my good old friend the elliptical.

You know how it is easier to lose weight when you have a buddy? Good news, the hubs has also expressed a desire to get healthier. We'll take turns on days that we workout so that we still have the majority of an evening together. I know that when we put our minds to getting healthier, that it happens.

One final thought, do you think it is easier to be healthy, or unhealthy? For instance, when I'm not working out and eating well, I feel like I have a lot more choices and freedom. But when I am being healthy, I have more energy, it is easier to find clothes that fit and look good, and I'm less self conscious. So, which do you think is easier?

While it may be easier to be unhealthy with your eating choices, I think it has mental consequences. Even before I really started watching my health content, eating really unhealthy foods would make me feel kind of down. I would rather make smart decisions and feel better than eat whatever I want and feel bad about it later.

Val said...

Congrats with the hub/workout buddy! That's exciting.

For me it is easier to be unhealthy. It's easy to just mindlessly choose unhealthy options, to not workout, etc. Sad but true :(

Hope your Monday was AWESOME!!

I think it's easier and less expensive to be unhealthy. Not just unhealthy with the number of calories either. But unhealthy with buying cheap Lean Cuisines that have more "fake" things in them than real and that don't necessarily fill you up which leads to eating more. Plus I would rather eat ice cream than fruit any day!

You know, I was just on OnePinky.com and I think that site might be a great resource for you. It's run by a gal named Laura Fenamore who is all about targeting body image issues from within so that you never have to diet again. She actually lost a TON of weight herself so knows what she's talking about. You and your readers might really appreciate her message.
