Daylight Saving Time is FINALLY here!MC900432635[1] Three weeks ago I assigned myself some action steps for improving my health that I wanted to complete by today. Unfortunately, I did not complete them all. I have been working quite a bit at school and helping Andrew get ready for his upcoming trip to Ireland. Instead of admonishing myself, I am praising myself for the steps that I did accomplish (week 1). After all, I do have until the end of the year to complete this goal.

I reread Part 1: “This is Why You’re Fat” in Jackie Warner’s This is Why You’re Fat (And How to Get Thin Forever). This section of the book basically explains the three hormones that make you thin, the four hormones that make you fat, balancing your hormones naturally, outsmarting your cravings, sugar overload and weight gain, sugar addiction, hidden sugars, detoxifying your liver, thyroid and metabolism, and avoiding adrenal burnout. Sadly, I am a sugar addict, and I am abusing my body with eating unhealthily and not exercising regularly.

I increased my water intake. In three weeks, I drank a lemonade (Taco Bell) and two mocha lattes (PJ’s/BAM). Otherwise, I drank only water or hot green tea with pomegranate.  I do limit my tea consumption to two cups per day (12 ounce cups) mixed with a little honey.

I weighed myself this afternoon instead of this morning because I forgot that today was the day. I weighed in at 157 pounds which is a three pound increase from my last weigh-in on 12 February 2018. I refuse to fret. This means I need to weigh at least 139 pounds by the end of 2018. Of course, more is BETTER in this situation.

Realistically, I know that I will not start my food journal until the Monday after Easter. I am off of work, so this week will be a perfect week to begin the journal. However, I do need to read Part 2 and Part 3 of Jackie Warner’s book in order to buy the healthy foods I will be implementing in my diet and to create an exercise schedule. Tomorrow, I start walking in the evenings after dinner and will begin keeping an exercise log, as well.

On 19 March 2018, I will again participate in Oprah and Deepak’s Shedding the Weight Meditation. It is a free 21-Day Meditation. I thoroughly enjoy their meditation series. I am thrilled that the Chopra Center is repeating this one. What perfect timing since I am focusing on my health and wanting to shed some weight!

Dear reader, I am getting excited about this leg of the 2018 journey. There is so much to gain from eating clean, exercising regularly, getting enough sleep, and incorporating meditation in your life. If you want to join the free meditation series, click on the link above to register. Enjoy your upcoming week and be proactive with your own goals for this year. Happiness!
