Things are still good, on the attitude front.:-)
I was thinking about how much time I spend on the computer, and watching my reality TV! I haven't quite added up the number of hours in a week, but I'm sure the results would be staggering.
Between reading blogs, being addicted to facebook, watching ANTM, Ugly Betty, Grey's Anatomy and 24, and taking care of a baby - I don't have much spare time. I can't remember the last time I actually picked up a book and read for pleasure.
So, I'm going to cut back on my facebook time - in a BIG way. And, I'm going to start taping (sorry - still old-fashioned - don't have a PVR yet) my TV shows so that I can skip through commercials and save some time.
Instead, I'm going to go for more walks on my own (well, with my iPod!). I'm also going to spend more time reading, and cooking. Exercising! And maybe even reflecting. Imagine that!
Part of my response to all of this life change has been emotional eating and staying indoors. Maybe if I gave myself more opportunity and time to step away from things, I'll gain a whole new perspective on it all.
Went to see my lovely naturopath yesterday.
((And as an aside - I stopped at a lovely tea shop along the way, and picked up some WONDERFUL stuff - including some Lady Grey tea with lavender for moi!).
She's given me some great guidelines on how many fats, carbs, proteins, veggies, fruits, etc. to have a day. She thinks that my body needs a bit of a kick-start, because my energy levels have been low. This is actually really helpful, because now I can plan my meals better. I've been eating way too much fat (even though it's "healthy" - like almond butter, olive oil, etc. - it's just too much).
I'm really going to make an effort to focus on my overall health. I really want to see losses on that scale....but that will come in time. So, it's with heavy heart that I will be putting my scale away for the next few weeks. It's a change in focus for me that I really need.
Going for a swim tonight! Woo hoo!
