"Beauty is only skin deep. I think what's really important
is finding a balance of mind, body and spirit." -Jennifer Lopez
I found that quote and was rather surprised that it came from a celebrity. Then again, it's easy to say beauty is only skin deep when your skin looks like Jennifer Lopez. I do like what she says and that is one of the things I'm working on. Like I said in my post before, I'm still struggling with taking it slow, but here goes. My two goals for this week are these-
First, I will listen to my body. For example, when the walnut brownies my kids made call my name (oh, yes, they know my name) I will ignore them. Because I know that eating a palm-sized brownie, while heavenly at first, will result in some serious stomach churning later. And a sugar headache. Do you get a sugar headache? I get lots of headaches, but the sugar-induced kind are especially fierce.
Second, I'm going to start reading this-
-again. I read it a few years ago and lost 15 pounds. Then I fell back into old habits. Me and my bad habits. Such a love/hate relationship- they love me, I hate them. (I am not sponsored by this book, I just believe very strongly in it.) It was given to me by my neighbor who is a nutritionist. It truly is revolutionary.
Also, I'm trying to make note of things I do like about my body. (Often a hard thing to do.) Today, I love my nails. They are thick and strong and grow really well.
What do you like about yourself today?
