I woke up around 2 am this morning and was hungry. So I got up and drank some apple juice, then went back to bed. I have been trying not to eat after 8 pm, but I need to have some juice around 9:00 pm to tide me over till morning while juicing.
Today was fine. I did work a lot so I didn’t end up drinking as regularly as I should so when I got home from work around 5 pm, I was really hungry. I had a glass of OJ and read a book. I could have drunk two glasses, but didn’t feel like it. Basically my desire to eat is fading as well as my desire to juice vegetables. I bought some yesterday, but didn’t juice any today. They just didn’t sound good. I need to force myself to do it tomorrow, which shouldn’t be too hard because I am out of apple juice so I have to juice some of that tomorrow anyway.
I’ve been thinking about my thoughts. In a Joyce Meyer video on controlling our thoughts, I realized that I need to start speaking positive words and words from the Bible in my life even if I don’t feel like good things are going to happen. Sometimes in life things just continue to go wrong for so long, even though it wasn’t my fault, it was the fault of others and since I can’t separate myself from them at this time, I’m sort of stuck, it makes me begin to think negatively, like nothing is ever going to go right, no matter how hard I work at it or how many smart choices I make. For a person like me, who thrives on change, this can be unbearable and extremely stressful. I need to not let myself speak negative things into my life, but find some positive and repeat those over and over until I believe it.
I weighed 216.6 this morning. Progress may be super slow in weight loss or life, but because it’s the right thing to do, I will – Keep Moving Forward.
