21 Nov - It has been a long time since I blogged and as we draw close to the end of our 12 weeks, I have been practicing what I want to say over & over in my head. I finally decided the best way was to keep it simple:
Six years ago I got up one morning and lit a cigarette, took one puff and threw it out. I quit, just like that. I didn’t want to be that woman.
Four years ago I eliminated beer and alcohol from my diet. I quit. I didn’t want to do that anymore.
Two years ago I realized I had no cardio endurance and started walking. It was free, I could do it anywhere, anytime. I wanted to breath.
This last year I have started looking at my diet and the choices I make and how could I change my eating habits.
Then I was invited to join this program.
At week eight I made a self realization. I did not have addictions to cigarettes or alcohol or nail biting, I had habits! Addictions are not something you quit, they are something you fight. I on the other hand had just walked away and never had a moment of challenge after.
I think the first call with Joleene, when she explained about repeating a new life choice until it became instinct was the start.
The store walk through with Nicole, where she showed what I should really be looking for in my food choices, clarified what I had been trying to understand.
I feel like the pieces of a puzzle are coming together, like I almost have the answer……….
