Message to Myself

Sarah, you cannot continue this cycle. Don't act all innocent, you know EXACTLY what I mean!

You know that you have been overeating since last weekend.
You know you've been eating too many snacks in the evening.
You know you are just eating for the hell of it.
You know you feel full, sick and bloated at this very moment.
You know you have been exercising in a half-hearted way.
You know the scale isn't moving.

You know your mood has been effected by all of the above.

So what are we going to do about it?

MOVE that ass!!
Go outside for an early morning jog.
Go back to Zumba class at the gym.
Do the Davina legs and bums section that you like.
Finally learn the routines on the strictly DVDs you have got (you won't learn nowt if you don't practice!)
Master the hula hoop!
Do your hip hop dance DVD you like so much - hey, why not do it before work?
Use my resistance bands - they tone EVERYTHING. You just gotta USE IT!
Get workouts out of the way (so first thing in the morning) Y'know, like you used to do? Remember how you enjoyed that so much? How good (and embarrasingly superior) it made you feel?

Now, lets not forget FOOD

THINK before you eat! If you are bored/emotional/stressed then FOOD is not the answer!
Listen to your body.
Eat more protein.
DRINK more water. Lots of water. Plain water. Cucumber water. Lemon water. Ice water. Just DRINK.
Control your snacking habit. You are NOT hungry, just greedy for some 'afters'.
Start to track daily food intake on SparkPeople (quit whining, it won't be forever, just till to learn new habits).

Got all that?

Make yourself PROUD
Go prove yourself right
You are WORTH the effort
It WILL feel good
It WILL be worth the early mornings and sweaty clothes.

Thank you for reading,
Lots of love,
The Sarah who will be finally revealed to the world. xx
