Trust the Process

Tonight, I didn't work out. I decided to prepare mentally for the rest of the week.  The first thing I did was make my Fitness Journal.  I listened to Biggest Loser on tv.  I steamed cauliflower so I can make mock mashed potatoes with it.  My next step is to plan my eating for tomorrow...so I can "mindlessly" be more mindful when I eat.  I don't want to have to think about what to have; I want to have it planned.  I'm going to journal in advance my food choices and then record after eating my emotions and feelings.  I am also taking my husband's advice and keeping things simple in the menu department.  There are basic foods I enjoy that I know will make me more successful.

If my journal title "Shrink" seems disturbing, allow me to explain.  When my oldest child was in high school, he had a nickname for me that was basically some sound that evolved into the nickname Shrink.  It just so happens that over a period of nearly 3 years, I evolved, too...from a 224 pound mom down to a 147 pound mom.  So, Shrink fit. 

I find it a little intimidating to find myself in this condition again.  I don't weigh 224, but I am not at a healthy weight.  I have high blood pressure, and am struggling with some muscle aches and pains.  Here we go. Here's to new beginnings, trusting the process, and being mindful and present in my life.
