The truth is, I know how to lose weight. I have done it a ton of times (no pun intended!). I seem to have an exercise habit going. As I thought about it this afternoon, I realized if I could just change my eating habits I bet I would take up healthy living a notch and be able to lose weight. I have told myself that I don't exercise every day to lose weight. I have seen so many benefits from exercising that if I just focus on how I haven't lost weight I would miss recognizing all the other great benefits of exercising daily. I seem to do best when I do things a step at a time. This exercise habit has been a really long journey. My goal is to be a runner. I have been exercising every day for 154 days now! That really is an accomplishment. I am not even a runner yet, but I can see it happening. I keep getting a little better all the time, so in time, I think I really will be a runner.
Today I decided that the next habit I'm going to start on is to eat better by eating a salad every day. I'm very excited about it. I looked up recipes for salads in a jar and there are a million ideas out there! Today I made five jars so that I'm ready for the week. Each day I will just need to grab some fruit for my morning snack and maybe a carb to go with my salad at lunch. This is going to be great!! I can see myself doing this.
