All my life when I find something great (yoga, veganism, health, new makeup....and the list goes on) I often want to share because I'm so excited about what I've learned. This isn't always helpful. I end up being over excited, pushy, let down when others don't see it my way and then I often give up.
With my carreer change to a yoga teacher and health coach, specifically working with clients needing weight loss, a health tune up, and working towards a plant based diet I've come to realize that my best work can be done by working on myself. Committing to me and simply being the change. As my close circles see me becomming slimmer and successfull my hope is that it will inspire them to make changes in their own life, but I'm not going to judge or push this time. This time I'm just going to make it about me.
I've been back on track with my starch based life style for about a week and a half now. My energy is low but I think I've indulged in sugar a bit much and I've been resisting a cold.
Last night I let myself get too hungry and we were out watching football at our local bar and I ended up eating fries. I felt TERRIBLE after. My goal this week is to keep healthy food around, tucked in a pocket or purse - whatever - so that I don't get too hungry and rely on crap that makes me feel awful.
I'm also headed to Disneyland for christmas (junk food city!) and I'm going to get some McDougall cups so I can be prepared with a healthy oatmeal breakfast in the room. I've done a bit of research and while I think it will be tough to avoid oil completly I think I can do a pretty good job of it while I'm there. I'm really looking forward to the challenge of eating well while having a good time so I can report back on my blog and here.
I've been inspired by so many others, now is the time for me to put it to work so I can hopefully pass it on.
