Feeling sorry for myself.

Week 8 Challenge: Stop counting calories
I’ve mentioned before that I wanted to free myself from calorie counting.
So, this week’s challenge is to give up the food log. I need to do this to prove to myself that I can eat like a normal person without tracking.
I officially stopped counting on Thursday, and the next few days were slightly disastrous—a combination of rebellion/wanting to eat the world after 9 miles and working out. It was two days’ worth of eating junk without any satisfaction. I went to bed bloated and sick.
Luckily I got that out of my system, and yesterday was business as usual. I need to cultivate a healthy relationship with food—a relationship without calorie counting and obsession.
Now, because this doesn’t actually take any effort on my part, I’m going to have a secondary challenge.
Week 8 Mini Challenge: Lose the negativity
I’ve had a shitty attitude the past week or two. I need to remember that I have a lot of incredible things going on in my life.
Every day this week, I’ll pick a different aspect of my life (marriage, work, self, family, etc.) and list five positive, appreciative thoughts.
Sometimes I take my life for granted. I have so much to be thankful for, and I’m going to remind myself of that this week.
I’d love if you’d join me! What are you thankful for?
