What's WRONG with Tomorrow - or Tues?

Sunday, September 29, 2013

It's Sunday.... beautiful, sunny, cool, day. Here I sit after the 2 doughnut binge! It was good, believe me. I haven't enjoyed donuts for a long time and today with my coffee, it tasted OH, SO GOOD. Yum, chocolate on top, Boston cream inside. Then of course, one apple fritter. Nothing like apples in the fall!

I was thinking that tomorrow is Oct 1 - new day, new month, new challenge. Then I found out that tomorrow is not OCT, but yet another day before I get there. A new challenge was going to be tomorrow, so why not start NOW???

UGH.. I have many, many excuses! I seem to get the exercise thing going else, I get the food thing in check, but n'er do I get the two going together. My head isn't there. It's work, it's a push, it's a psych out for my brain and yet, I shy away.

Truth of the matter is, I've been getting up every day in pain. Sore joints, shoulders, back etc. and I have been exercising by walking a couple miles most days. I have been stretching, but maybe not enough (maybe that's why I'm sore?). I cannot seem to get it going and now, just want to forget it! So today, I'm going to take a breather and relax. No need to push, condone, or beat myself up for what I didn't do!

And even though tomorrow isn't October 1, I'm getting right back to it - I know what I have to do and I know how to do it, so that's the plan for me!

    Thank you all for your support!!! You'll be happy to know, I did get out and walk 2 miles yesterday and did a lot of on the floor stretching. Ended up being a decent day after all!

    Maybe you should talk with your Dr. if everything hurts as you never know what it may be a sign of. Just don't give up as you will never know if you do. emoticon

    I went through something very similar awhile back. I'd exercise well and not be too particular about my diet and feel terrible. When I blended the two equally, I felt better.

    Just a thought

    Remembering too, that two donuts and a day of downtime wont make who you are. There are still all the other days where you were able to resist the donuts and did walk. Chin up....tomorrow IS a new day and one where you can plan tonight on activities that will have you back on track.
    I read somewhere that you plan to succeed, or fail, because lack of planning to succeed is planning to fail. So plan tomorrow, tonight when you have a moment to do so.

    You are not alone in your struggles. You have taken the first step in admitting you have them. Now dust yourself off and decide to begin today rather than wait until Oct 1. I did!
