Refreshing My Life!

I'm pleased with the progress I've been making on changing life habits. Giving up things and doing new things is a challenge to me since I'm so used to doing things out of habit. I'm finally looking at changes as being in my best interest especially on an emotional level, not just the intellectual level. I have much less feelings of deprivation, and my new changes are turning into habits. Now they are things I want and need, not just hoped for. I'm also really embracing the concepts of one step ...

I'm finally looking at changes as being in my best interest especially on an emotional level, not just the intellectual level. I have much less feelings of deprivation, and my new changes are turning into habits. Now they are things I want and need, not just hoped for. I'm also really embracing the concepts of one step built on another, baby steps are progress, and no time limit- only progress. I've decided mistakes are made only to educate me and are only a sidestep, not a change in direction. The more I learn about health the easier it is to make choices.

Thanks for your comment on my blog! I feel more like the worker bee than the queen at the moment, but hopefully things will settle down soon... at least now that we are done with the two apartments we can focus on unpacking and turning this mess into a real home emoticon

Hi Eileen! You were talking on my blog about setting a pretty table and sitting down to eat. I am reading a book that is very popular with many maintainers (and many trying to get there!) named "The Beck Diet Solution: Train your brain to think like a thin person". It is an older book and I got one from the library first to try out. Loved it, then bought my own on Amazon for $4.00 TOTAL. That included S/H! Dr. Beck breaks it down into 42 days of projects to do on your own schedule. I am only on Day 11, but it is making such a difference already! You might enjoy looking into it! You can buy a workbook to go with it but I just use a spiral notebook.

Take care and stay warm! emoticon
