Where did November go?

Seriously!! This month flew by like no other! And it's so warm outside today that it feels like Spring instead of the day before December!! I've had a semi-productive, semi-irritating morning so far. It's hard getting back to work after being off for two days, I feel like I wasted the entire morning doing busy work and now I can finally get down to business!!

For breakfast I had some oatmeal with applesauce, almond butter & raisins. At lunch I rushed over to the grocery store for some produce, I feel like I haven't had a salade in F-O-R-E-V-A-H!!!! After all the heavy dishes from Turkey Day it was nice to have a crisp & fresh little lunch. I made a spinach salade with tomatoes, cucumber, celery, carrot, tuna & balsamic vinaigrette.
I brought some almonds and an apple to nom on later in case I get hungry. I'm going to kickboxing class tonight, which I'm really excited about!
Also this morning I had a nice g-chat with my good friend Christie! We talked about food, relationships and how to deal with problems. Both of us tend to bottle things up inside and then we don't really know how to deal with them when they come out. I'm dealing with many things right now and I'm not sure it's time for me to address them yet, but here goes!

It's scary to make changes in your life, but if you feel like you want or need a different outcome, then you must make those changes in order to obtain that outcome. After all, if you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always got!! I've heard this idea before, but only applied it to healthy eating and the physical outcomes. Now I'm seeing that this can apply to ALL areas of your life!! If you don't change your behaviors, you can't expect to have a new and different outcome. Where I'm at right now is that I need to learn exactly WHAT changes I need to make. I know the outcome that I want, so I've got to figure out how exactly to obtain it. This is usually where I hit a dead end. In the past, I've repeated unhealthy behaviors and never learned a new healthy behavior. I'm going to have to research different healthy ways of thinking so I can stop the unhealthy cycle. I'm thinking a lot of time to myself, reflection & meditation are in order!!!!
