Lately I’m finding it hard to focus on one thing at a time and I’m very low on energy. I joke around and say that 2015 sucked the life out me, but it may not be far from the truth. It was a challenging year and I let too much negativity and stress into my life.
Lately I’ve found myself sitting in front of the computer with my manuscript open, but no words come to write. The longer I sit the worse I feel because the deadline is closing in. Then in comes depression and self doubt.
So I need to make changes in my life that go with my goal to be a happy and healthier me.
Eating better and taking vitamins are one of those changes. AND I’m not focusing on losing weight. Why? because when I do I fail. I get discourage because the pounds aren’t coming off fast enough. I’m eating better to FEEL better. To be more energized and to regain focus. Yes food and exercise effect mood and focus.
Do you have any favorite healthy recipes? Any great sites you can recommend?
I don’t think you should be thinking about losing weight right now, it sounds like you have something else on your mind weighing you down. Get away from your computer for awhile, go for a walk or go buy a new pair of shoes, just get out and take a deep breath your computer will be there when you get back. I’m sorry I don’t have any sights that you can go to. I hope you can pull yourself out of the funk. Good luck
One of my favorites recently is crock pot bbq chicken. Fresh or frozen chicken breast, a can of coke zero, low sugar bbq sauce (6g per serving is usually the lowest I can find … I like the Weber brand one), an onion quartered, and a lemon quartered. Low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours. Serve with steamed broccoli or any other veggie.
Sometimes you just have to take a step back and take care of yourself.
I agree with Carolyn you need to deal with what ever else that’s bothering you first, and scrap the diet. Eat less and do more. And quit worrying about a few pounds.
