laying off the fats
Okay, it's time for me to get back to eating simply. I had so many avocados & macadamia nuts in Hawaii, that I've been craving fats ever since. Everything I had on my trip was delicious, and I don't regret it or feel guilty about it. I'm just ready to go back to eating mostly salads and smoothies. My body feels so much better when I'm doing that.
I'm also going to stop eating so late at night. I got back into old habits on our trip because it's hard to stick to a schedule when you're traveling with other people. It was fine for the circumstances, but now that I've been back in town for a week...it's time to stop making excuses and get back to what was working for me before I went out of town.
Sadly, I've gained all 10 pounds back...yet again. Grr! Every time I release weight I think "this time will be different." I still have faith that someday it really will be different. I just hope that time comes sooner rather than later! I'm so over this bouncing back and forth.
So if I'm over it, why does it keep happening? I still haven't figured it out. What will be my breakthrough? What will be my turning point? Every time I think I find the answer, it only lasts temporarily. What do I need to do to sustain it? For some reason, when I reach a goal, I slack off and go back to old habits. How do I reach the point where I maintain the new me and leave the old me behind? What is the hang up? What am I afraid of letting go?
