Great Monday Quote

First off I want to say that I know I should have exercised today with having the day off but I didn't. I apparently have been exhausted because not only did I have sleep until 8:30 but I then took a two hour nap today. Of course, I did have a mini-migraine earlier. It started while I was out shopping for my Pampered Chef party. If anyone wants to place an order please let me know and I'll send you an email invite and you can place it through the website. I'm excited about hanging out with my friends. I always have fun with that plus we are going to go healthy! Tomorrow morning we have an inservice at school so I'm going to try getting up again at the right time and hopefully exercising. That's my plan anyway.

Here's the quote for today- I found it on the Unity Stamp Company's blog and thought it as appropriate:

"Some men see things as they are and ask why. Others dream things that never were and ask why not."George Bernard ShawIrish Playwright

Instead of asking, why I am "fat"/overweight, or why can't stop eating- DREAM about what you wish or think you should be and ask why not? If needed, journal your answers. For me-it is sometimes a fear to let the "skinny me" out. I am afraid of rejection and when I'm heavier I know I'm rejected. Does that make sense?

Food Log:
Breakfast- SB cereal bar
Lunch- grilled chicken fillet, apples, grapes, and lowfat yogurt (fruit and walnut salad without the walnuts)
snack- 1 tbs. peanut butter
dinner- 1 serving of Campbell's Chunky sirloin burger soup, s-f jello with whipped topping
beverages- 20 oz. plus 20 oz. equals 40 oz. water as of 7 pm

I so understand what you are saying. We feel powerless to the point of giving up at the first sign of failure...saying "see I knew I couldn't do this". See my blogsite for the reference of a book I am reading about breaking free from emotional eating. Emotional eating is what we do to keep things the way they are.
Let's get our skinny selves out!!
