How can you be a wise one if you've never failed - you have to fail to learn.
Self belief is a wonderful thing, that's why I haven't been able to do it all year, I haven't believed I could. I should've realised your world is a reflection of your thoughts, change your thoughts, change your behaviour, ultimately we are what we believe we are. Right now I believe I'm going to get to the end of this year a stone lighter than I started it!
Sometimes the hardest part of a weight loss journey is believing that you can do it, for some it's believing they are worthy of the trip! Trust me you are, more than worthy of the effort it takes to get healthy, to work on yourself. So today be aware of what you're saying to yourself, be careful of those words and thoughts, they can sabotage your success way more than the odd jam doughnut!
And don't forget to reward yourself along the way, I don't mean with food - you're not a dog! A simple "well done" to yourself is a good start, but for me at the moment, my rewards are audio books, I'm treating myself to one every week so I enjoy my 30 minute walks.
So I lost weight, I'm 1.5lb off my 5%, not focusing on the numbers through - honest! I'm focusing on eating 3 good, delicious meals a day. The delicious is important, I need to be physically satisfied but also emotionally satisfied, I realised that Wednesday when my lunch didn't quite hit the brain needs, I was left wanting something more, not because I was hungry but because I wasn't satisfied, it didn't hit all the right buttons. I've learned from that for sure, I've got to enjoy the meal 100%.
I enjoyed everything I ate yesterday, I started my day with a ham and cheese triangle toastie for 7sp, lunch was chilli chocolate beef, beans and vegetable rice for 12, then my tea was pitta pizzas for 13sp. All very tasty indeed.
This is a link to what I ate last week https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10154427927435862.1073741937.595730861&type=1&l=c13a469ff9
Good food, enjoyed and a result at the end - what more can I ask for!
So here's to another day on track and enjoying it, got a few errands to run before I cook up something delicious, then go to my meeting tonight. The rain needs to stop though, I've got a 30 minute walk to go on :)
Believe you can and you're halfway there BeYOUtiful.
