In other Suenews, I'm on a mission to lose weight again. I've reluctantly concluded that much like my energy surges and mood swings, apparently the cycle of getting in shape and to a weight I'm happy about, then getting complacent and letting things slide, and getting all disgusted with myself and feeling like a fat cow again---- is *normal* for me. So the pattern continues.
So here's some of the healthy stuff I'm eating. Healthy can also be yummy. (The gum is sort of a new habit. Trying it out. It seems to do the trick when I want a snack but am not truly hungry.)
So, I've figured this out about myself, and will keep the bitching to a minimum. I have a choice-- break this pattern or just accept it and shut up. For now I'm walking the line of acceptance, trying to be nice to myself about it all, but get back on the healthy horse. If it's always going to be a bit cyclical, I guess I'm okay with that, as long as the margins are sort of narrow.
A little every day, or a couple times a day, is the key for me. Sometimes I feel like hitting it hard, and then that is fun too. I just go by how I feel that day.
Today I'm going to my Mom's for Thanksgiving, and kicking off the holiday season, which isn't always that easy for many of us. This year I'm going to really make a point of trying to enjoy the good parts of it, and not let the things that bug me about it get too me too much.
I hope all of you have a wonderful relaxing weekend doing whatever it is you choose. Remember-- lots of the hype and craziness is your option. :)
