Weekends..

You know something? I use to worry about weekends. I use to eat my way through the weekend. I use to have headaches you wouldn’t believe. I use to sleep 12 hours each day and also take a nap. I loved them but they were not good for me. Now they are different. I no longer get the headaches, I eat like a normal person, I sleep 7-8 hours and oh once in awhile I’ll take a nap but not all the time. I feel great. I really do. I even have my time of the month and it’s not a pleasant one but I’m not dying. You know what I think is doing all of this, oh it’s the weight I’ve lost, it’s the fact I know what to eat and not to eat but the big thing is the water. I have always been a water drinker but the past two weeks I have been drinking a gallon a day. I measure each day, I have a half gallon pitcher I fill up twice a day, sometimes even more and I think it’s all because of that. And just think, starting Tuesday we up our intake even more. I wonder how that will be? It can only be good.

I am finding each week to be exciting. To exercise just a bit harder, to eat a bit better, to drink a bit more, to take care of myself and love myself a bit more. It is amazing learning to love yourself again. To believe in yourself again. Today is day 309 for me, I did not know that 309 days of learning to take care of myself could feel this good.

I hope that no matter where you are in your journey to a better you that you know you too can do it. I have faith in you, I am proud of all that you’ve become and all that you’re going to become.

Take care my friends, have a great and exciting week. God Bless you all!!

Wow, Julie, it sure is nice to learn these lessons. I found it amazing how long it has taken me to learn those things, and in fact, I am not sure I have learned the lessons as well as I need to.

Great message, I feel the same way about weekends! It would be an endless routine of eating, munching, lounging and sleeping for me too. I couldn't have said it better...

Love the positivity! I struggle on weekends too, but am getting better. Am going to up the water intake too.
