What I have learned is I can accomplish many things in baby steps. This keeps life's challenges and chores from being overwhelming, as well as making them more pleasurable. This is why I keep writing and sharing, hoping you will be encouraged to join the dance of balance and grace.
My plan is to eat healthier, according to what my body needs; but, on the other hand, I do not plan to get myself in a position of feeling like I am on a diet. However, if I want to lose the few pounds I have gained from emotional eating, which for me usually means eating more sweets and eating when I am not hungry, I need to do some things to get myself back on the right track.
That does not mean I will be bound by the scale, but I know in my heart that I need to pay more attention to what I eat and move more. I will not tell you whether you should be on a particular food plan. However, I am going to be finding out what I need to do, and I will share the valleys and the victories. It's hard work, and it's so much better when that is shared.
Meanwhile, back at the hacienda, remember that cleaning house Is Exercise. This is movement that counts, so if you are cleaning up your cluttered areas and taking care of your home, you are getting exercise! Hooray!
Finally, I am posting 2 Habits of the Month. One involves what we eat, and the other involves cleaning up the clutter in your home and/or office Don't take on too much. I don't want you to feel overwhelmed. Do what you can do, but do not obsess about it.
