Wow, I wasn't kidding when I said I have food addictions. I am actually amazed at how significant they are. I actually went to Mc Donald's for lunch today with the kids. How bad is that? I write how I am going to start eating healthier and I take my kids to Mc Donald's. This really has to stop. As of right now, not tomorrow, not in the next couple of hours but right now, I am going to change my eating. I have been reading too many blogs of people who have made the changes and made them stick to not make the change myself. There is no turning back. Unfortunately, I am going to a wake and a funeral the next 2 days and they will have a ton of food there. I am not looking forward to not eating all of the foods that I will want to eat, but I really need to start these changes and I can no longer say "I'll do it tomorrow" or "I'll do it when the time it right". There is no right time. The right time is now. I want to start my day off with a green smoothie, and maybe even have another one for lunch. I need to plan how to deal with the wake and the food after the wake, but if I have a plan in place, I know I can handle it. If I am thinking that I want to, someday, maybe do nutritional counseling, I really need to focus on getting my own health and life in order. I need to start exercising too and I will, but I just need to focus on the eating piece right now and then I will get the exercise piece down too. It all goes hand in hand. If I eat right I will have energy for exercising. If I exercise, I'll want to continue to eat right. no more Mc Donald's. The last thing I need to do is get my kids hooked on that kind of crap! I think the next thing I need to do is get a plan in place, what do I need to do to get to what my goals are. Actually, I should probably get my goals prepared and then figure out how to get there. My next step is to write down my goals and then write down exactly what I am going to do to meet my goals. Wish me luck. I am off to do some goal setting and then some research on how to meet those goals!
