So, if you have been reading you know I have been seeing a nutritionist, I should really give her a shout out for those of you who liked what she had to say... hi Rachel Hewitt. She is going on maternity leave right away, so consider her for a clean start this fall maybe. Anyhow.... I've been doing lots of reading and have started following a number of other blogs about eating well. Check out my blogroll on the side of the blog to see other blogs including these two: Oh, She Glows and Sweet Potato Chronicles.
A couple of weeks ago I set some more specific goals and this week I made a tracking chart to help hold me accountable and hung it in my bedroom beside my future board. The future board has all the things I want to do and accomplish in my life on it. After being on holidays, I got to cross of snorkeling - yeah!
I know I have made lots of great changes, but it still doesn't feel like enough, mostly because I know I am not being consistent enough to see any real results. I've been maintaining my weight and over time have lost a tiny bit, but not what I need to. So, after some more contemplating, I've decided the next step is to see a "life coach" of sorts. Someone who can help me deal with other issues at the same time. I mostly know what I have to do, I've done exercise programs and now have the nutritional information I need, but yet I don't have the willpower or determination to do it all the time - how come? I hope she will help me find out. I've also got lots of anxiety issues that prevent me from doing other things I might like... like the zipline. It wasn't that I wouldn't have given it a shot, but once you did one, you had to do the whole circuit, which was 18 ziplines - I was way too scared to commit to that. I'm not so worried about things like ziplining though compared to everyday types of things. I get worked up very easily about all types of situations that I do not feel in control of, so I hope I can conquer a few other issues as I continue through this process of living life to the fullest!
Thanks for all the support through this process. Keep sending me healthy recipes to try!
