Is it just a coincidence that I haven't blogged in a couple of weeks? Probably not.
At any rate - I took my blues to the Twitter streets yesterday and got the
4 Steps to
Beat the Blues GETTING OVER IT
1. Identify the problem and do something about it: for me, stress from friends' drama and unreliable friends.
2. Make a New Healthy Choice: this will empower you more than you think! One step in the right directions can lead to a whole new path
I took inspiration from Skinny Emmie and dived into my first Spaghetti Squash adventure. Result? SUCCESS. I added grilled chicken, mushrooms, and a little garlic alfredo sauce! Top it on some squash and you have a super filling dinner for about 250 calories.The even better part? All of this food in the picture made enough for four meals. They are portioned out in my fridge for easy grab-n-go lunches. One step = a week of success!
3. Do something that brings you pure joy: Anything that makes you feel like YOU. My best advice : take something that is stressing you and turn it into something enjoyable!
Sometimes I get lonely and a little sad at night, since my fiance heads out the door the second I get home. So instead of dwelling in boredom, my beautiful daughter and I had some fun making faces in the mirror and giggling hysterically. There's just something about a baby's laugh that makes everything better! My mind was totally in a better place by the time she went to bed that instead of sitting on the couch and binging, I headed to the kitchen and whipped up that spaghetti squash delight!
4. SLEEP ON IT: The best possible thing you can do for your mind and body is be well-rested.
There is nothing better than waking up with a fresh outlook on life. I woke up this morning inspired to continue my positive path. I wasn't groggy or cranky - just awake and ready. I meditated, made an amazing Green Monster, grabbed my already made lunch, and headed out the door.
