There is a lot of chatter about judgment these days! We all know that we shouldn’t judge others but what about ourselves? Nobody judges themselves harsher then we do! I am my worst critic some days! With all I have done to get to the place I am I still have days that I look into the mirror and don’t feel pretty. I convince myself that I am chubby! I made a huge goal when I started this journey. I never ever told anyone about it. Too much pressure! So I met that goal 150 pounds. I have exceeded it even but that is my number (150). I will not allow myself to go over! I am still there but everyday all day I have to think about my actions! I constantly think about what I am preparing to eat, what I drink and getting in my exercise. I don’t think too much about it so its bothersome but I really believe that is the difference in why I have been able to maintain for so long. I want you to hear this loud and clear be kind to yourself! Don’t judge yourself harshly! Take time for yourself. Don’t reward yourself with food! Reward yourself with praise, maybe a new shirt, manicure or just some time to yourself doing what you love! Surround yourself with people that are good for you! I finally realized after too many years that I don’t want a ton of friends. I just want true friends! A new goal for myself among many is as hard as I try not to judge others I am going to try not to judge myself!
I am a huge sweets girl. Lately though I have been all about chips and dip! I made my own tortilla chips by cutting up CORN tortillas into triangles placing them on a baking sheet and spray them with some Pam or whatever you have in the house. I use coconut oil spray from Trader Joes. If you want to salt them do so after you spray then bake at 425 for 8-10 minutes. Make or buy Pico De Gallo its 5 calories per 2 Tbsp. Great snack and you can have a decent amount so your not feeling deprived!!
