Different (from Finding My Thinner, Inner Person)

I woke up this morning feeling different. I don't know why.

Good night's sleep? Yeah - pretty good. Not really much different from usual.

Good dinner the night before? Yep - homemade broccoli quiche.

Exercise? Mmmm... not really, not on Sunday.

What made me feel different today?

Because today I feel good. Really good. I haven't felt this good in YEARS. Perhaps since shortly after my son was born (I felt great while I was pregnant).

Could it be, that after all this time and all this effort, I have turned a corner? Have all the vitamins finally kicked in? Has the modified diet made a difference? Is the increased exercise gotten things moving?

I can't really say what the difference is but I will embrace it and do everything I can to prolong this feeling. It's exciting. I'm happy to be alive, where before I was pretty much just here. I was thrilled to go to work, even though there's a pile of stuff for me to do there and headaches just waiting for me to arrive. I can't wait to go home and walk the dog or make dinner or fold laundry...

How very strange... and very wonderful!

Yes- it makes a difference!! And YES you have turned a corner!!!

And yes- you will continue to see external, and experience internal, changes as a result of your AMAZING growth in self care.

Speaking of self-care and fun writing/reading by the way, I am reading a copy of "Skinny Bitch" and it is LAUGH OUT LOUD FUNNY. I mean, it has actual good info in it too (although frankly, I'm using it as a guideline more than a rule). BUT- it is freaking hilarious! I love the affronting New Jersey girl tone in which it's written, the unforgiving, relentless screaming at its audience to not be idiots. I just love it. I'm on chapter 5. It is taking affect- I picked up my Diet Coke today, and realized I was drinking Liquid Satan. I recommend it- fun read. And it has some good advice buried in there too.
