So, I decided it was time to go through some clothes and get rid of some...you know, to make room for some new ones, right! Now, I am self-conscious so I always wear an over shirt plus it looks a little nicer for work so that's an excuse too. I tackled my closet and found plenty to donate then hit my 'tank top' drawer. I knew it was pretty stuffed but to my amazement I pulled out...I can hardly believe this...38 Tank Tops! Several I forgot I even had and a couple even had tags on them. I was so surprised! I managed to part with 10 of them and the funny thing is I have 5 coming that I ordered online just the day before I opened that drawer... You would think I live in a tropical place but No, Washington state~ lol..
Isn't springtime lovely; it's all things new and fresh and beautiful! I love this time of year; it is so rejuvenating. Have you done some spring cleaning? It sure sets me in motion; funny how I can spend hours of exercise via reorganizing and cleaning yet can't get on the darn treadmill! I guess it's all good. Soon it will warm up and we will be busy with our little garden and greenhouse. I am already looking forward to fresh vegetables and the canning season. I'm working on resetting some goals and focusing on myself and what I need to do to get the weight loss ball rolling consistently downhill. Last week was good; not great. Now I want to do Great! Have a wonderful week all!
So, the hubs leaves tomorrow night for a trip to visit family for a few days. I elected not to go for a couple reasons; one of course being the usual "I'll go someday when I lose weight" and the other I don't speak Spanish and there will be lots of that going on and laughing with people I don't know so it doesn't sound like much fun to me plus it will save $$. I'm grateful he wanted me to go anyway and doesn't see me the way I see myself. He's proud of me regardless and I know that is a huge blessing!
But I am EXCITED to use that time to focus on ME! I won't have any excuse to not eat right as I'll be only cooking for myself. I plan to take full advantage of this little window and really focus and zero in on what I need to do. I will have my own schedule and plenty of time so feel like this might be just what I need to really get back to doing good.
BUT, for me it is a huge deal. I have been fighting with all my might to stop the cravings for sweets. I mean I have been like...attacked...seriously out of control. It is confusing; I have no idea why that was happening. I've always over-indulged in sweets; duh.. it's part of why I am here in the first place but this craziness was just different.
BUT, I made it through yesterday without giving in; and not only did I 'make' it through the day without sugar, I didn't even crave sweets! I thought about my co-workers evil candy drawer at work off and on all day but it didn't draw me to it one bit. (Win!) Today I feel the same; no craving. I hope, hope this lasts as it is great for me on an emotional level. This might seem like such a tiny little deal to some but as hard as I have been battling it really is a big deal for me.
Thanks go out to my BFF Kim for suggesting we do lent together; it's my first time and I can't help but think I am getting a little divine help as well.
