My last post was a few weeks ago and I talked about getting back into a healthier lifestyle change, and it has made a huge difference in how I feel, not only physically, but also mentally. It has been challenging at times, because I still fight the urges to snack in the evenings, and sometimes I do have those ‘junk food’ days, but I’m moving more- and even starting to do a little running, and it feels good.
This amazing weather we’ve been having has definitely added to the incentive to get out and enjoy- so much so that I’ve let a few things go- such as writing here more often. But I’m working on finding that balance that works perfectly for me.
Today for dinner- I had some steamed broccoli, green beans, half an avocado, tomatoes from my garden (which is oh-so-good) and some grilled shrimp. It was delicious, and filling. Plus I knew that when I was finished- that even if I was not ‘stuffed’ (which I am learning all over again that I don’t ‘need’ to feel full all the time) that my body was being given what it needed nutrition wise- and I would not have that evening sluggish feeling from eating junk.
I haven’t looked at the scale, and honestly- I’m not sure if I will. It’s secondary to good health and feeling good. That’s what matters- not a number.
