A lot of interesting things are happening along my journey these days. I'm not saying I'm trying to lose weight or on a diet or whatever. But a few weeks ago I stopped drinking diet soda, or stopped drinking so much of it, and it's created a ripple effect.
I drink a lot more water. I eat a lot more "whole" foods and less processed crap. Real food just tastes better to me now. It's what I crave.
And I'm being more active. Walking, doing some yoga, swimming (or I was before my pool turned into a giant vat of ice water). I even started jogging a little along the way this week.
I haven't even weighed, because I know that derails me. But I can tell clothes are looser, and I feel better about myself.
I've had troubles sleeping for years now. Various reasons, I'm sure, but one is that I always used to sleep the soundest on my back. And I got to where I couldn't sleep on my back anymore, because I would snore and wake myself up. I've wondered whether my extra weight had something to do with this or not.
I'm not entirely sure that's it, but I do know this. I woke up this morning flat on my back from a sound sleep. And not because I was snoring. So, I'm calling that progress.
