"The best and safest thing is to keep a balance in your life." Euripides
I am not typically a "two post a day" girl but I was thinking today about my weight loss and the possible cause of it beginning to pick up speed. Reviewing the chart on Calorie Count I have noticed some spikes, and they co-incide with times when I began adding in healthy habits.
From May 2010 to June 2010 - I started counting calories and lost 11 pounds in one month
July 2010- August 2010 - I started working out and lost 10 pounds in a month.
October 2010 - December 2010 - I started drinking water with regularity and lost a pound a week.
And the past two weeks I have lost 3 pounds because, I believe, I have been sleeping more.
I believe the key is balance, the reason healthy people are healthy is because they have balance, they are active, they eat well, they drink water and get enough sleep. From my experience thus far I would also wager that they are happier, because at 46 pounds down I am happier then I can recall being in a long, long time.
Now I want to do things, I want to see people, I want to try new stuff, even if I am not sure it is going to turn out awesome. I have balance. Like nature I think that I will come to crave this balance, and like nature when things happen I will correct the imbalance. I like thinking of myself, of this change, as a part of nature.
Balance is good.
