So over the weekend, I have been having a good think, maybe over thinking, but I have definitely come to a conclusion, and I hope that it’s the right one. When it comes to diets, I have to wait for the time to come to me, I can’t just say, “right, today I’m going to eat so well, and become a goddess!”, that just doesn’t work for me. So I wait, and all of a sudden wake up without a fat persons appetite. Today’s that day, for some reason, I woke up with a major craving for cucumber, so thought I’d mix it in to my water for the day.
Cucumbers amazing, it’s a superfood which explains a lot. It is rich in fiber, which will keep you feeling full. It’s an antioxidant, it works wonders for your skin, and helps your brain function normally too. So here we go, I’m gonna try this…
Oh my God…
I usually hate fruit infused water, as I think it’s like having a soft drink without the sugar…yuk. But this is completely different, super refreshing and tasty., and obviously I know mentally that it’s not a sugary fruit, so I’m not expecting the sugary taste. My new fave drink…
So I’m sure this can only help my weightloss journey. I’m not planning on losing weight on the scales, as I want to build muscle too, to be strong and fit, and it’s hard for some people to understand this when they ask how much weight you are losing..when they look at you in disappointment because you say you’ve lost 2lbs in your first week, don’t be disheartened, you know you feel better and stronger and that is all that matters.
Mentally, over the past 12 months, I have wanted to see every positive aspect of life, and drown out any negative energy. This means eliminating negative people from your life, luckily I’ve been able to do this without offending too many people. You may find Facebook to be the most negative place possible, constant upsetting posts pushed in your face daily from people passionate about things that you aren’t or don’t want to see. My solution, the ‘unfollow’ button, they don’t need to know your not following them and you don’t need to press that harsh ‘unfriend’ button, tadaa..problem solved.
Now you’re just left with the actual humans..the ones that moan, the ones that judge you out loud and make sure you know about it.
My solution…let it go in one ear, and out the other! There’s billions of people in this world, you are just one, everyone is different, we all have a dream and need to follow it regardless of what others think or say.
So that’s my positive note for the day, I have many changes to make starting from today…so go get drinking those cucumbers, and be positive!
