I'm posting early because my computer has been acting up and I don't know if it will work tonight.
It's occurred to me....It's been brought to my attention that I am afflicted with immoderation. I've tried the whole being balanced thing for the past four or five days and it doesn't work.
It's the same thing that got me over weight in the first place. I don't want to stop at just one bowl of ice cream (I had two today)...or one bowl of cereal (three?)...
I tend to be immoderate in my eating...when I don't pay careful attention to it.
So... even while I was enjoying the food I ate this weekend...I was later, then, not enjoying the effects of what I ate. And I think it's pretty clear to everyone which scenario I prefer...
I prefer to enjoy the effects of healthy eating over the effects of enjoying unhealthy eating. Follow that?
But don't feel bad for me that I can't seem to eat in moderation. I still manage to succeed in eating healthy and being healthy. In fact, some might think I go a little overboard in those areas.
But I guess I would prefer to call it being focused. When you spot light or focus on one area in your life...you will tend to succeed in that area because you are harnessing your available energy and focusing it on that area.
So, I suppose I could focus on eating moderately? Ha! That would probably require needing to read that book that Dawn talks about, "A women of moderation".
Well, I have a little plan for tomorrow. I've created my own challenge, which I will talk about tomorrow.
I've noticed lately how there are so many challenges people do like Amy is doing the "sugar shock challenge." I've heard about the 30 day challenge to...I'm not sure what...But I think you all have heard about these different challenges.
Hey, I'm doing the push-ups challenge...Ahem...exuse me I have to correct that...
I succeeded in doing the 100 consecutive push-ups challenge...while pregnant I might add.
(sorry, had to get that in)...
But I have a fun little challenge that I made up all on my own to help jump start Sunshine Mama's re-entry into a sugarless, white flour-less diet.
I also think I may just compete in a 5K next weekend. I'm going to shake a leg tonight and see how a three mile run feels. With my last pregnancy, I was able to run up until 18 weeks along. So, if that holds true with this pregnancy, I still have four more weeks that I could run.
I hope you're all doing well!
