Where I am thrilled with my results so far, it has been the other added benefits that I am finding have (re) entered my life that get me all happy as well.
Whilst I have chosen to put less on my food plate, I have also put less on my 'to do' plate. I have found that week after week, I have achieved all that I had on my daily list of things to do. I have not overwhelmed myself with grandiose ideas of thinking I had all the time in the world on my days off to achieve a grocery list of 'to do' items.
I have widened my wardrobe selection and the feeling is so exciting. I would previously - and by that I mean only a few weeks ago - scan my clothing selection for what didn't need ironing and what would fit. I am now finding that I am standing looking at my clothes wondering what I feel like wearing. There are still items that are in the 'don't fit into' section that I am working towards adding to my repertoire of fashion, but having more choice has been very uplifting for my spirits.
I have begun to take more time with my makeup before leaving the house. I usually, and still will on occasion, do it in the car at a red light. I am talking eyeliner, mascara and lipstick. That's it. It can pretty much be all done by the time the light turns green! Now however, I have found that I am adding in a few other bits and pieces whilst I am getting ready and again find myself feeling really happy at the seemingly less effort of putting in a little more effort.
I am still mindful of my food choices and really loving it. I can very clearly see the effects on my body with my energy or how I feel physically if I slip in a food group at the wrong time of the day. Mainly a sugar or a carbohydrate. It hasn't happened often, but stands out like the proverbial when it has.
Speaking of energy, my energy levels have increased hugely. Just yesterday I was amazed at how 'alive' I felt for the whole day. Not an afternoon slump in sight!
So what is it that has changed? What has really changed is that I have prioritised myself. I have pushed me up the list of what is important in my life and the pay off has been nothing short of wonderful. A shift in attitude about me, and Newport Skinny Tea, was all it took.
