Wow… this is tough! It’s amazing the things that pop into my head. I struggle so hard not to count calories, to not over-do it, to workout to counteract a bad eating decision. I’m trying though. I’m trying to be kind and listen to my eating needs. Luckily it’s early in the month, and hopefully I can continue to honor myself. I want to continue to listen to what my body is saying.

My goals for the weekend are:

  1. To eat slowly and savor my fuel.
  2. To exercise for joy, not for punishment.

Let’s go! Nevertheless, instead of focusing on what’s tough, I want to celebrate what I have done well:

  1. Not counting calories
  2. Not exercising twice in a day
  3. Listening and honoring my hunger needs (90% of the time) whether to say “Yes” or “No” to food

It is not easy. But I am trying. Thanks for the words of encouragement— I need it. Sometimes I think I am weird for how I punish/push myself, so it’s nice to hear I’m not alone.

In other news, Meghann is having a Blogger Bakesale on Monday. I am making my famous chocolate chip cookies- so bid on it! The proceeds go to a great cause. Here is a pic of them (you’re welcome Sister 😉 )

You know you want some!
