I know the enemy and It's ME

Sunday, February 26, 2012

I need everybody's help. I have been doing really well up to now, but over the past week or so I've started noticing my old habits creeping slowly back into my days.
It's so easy to ignore these little errors, little by little - 1 oz. here, a couple of chips there till finally one day - before you even realize it you have a great big monster to deal with. You aren't even doing what you promised yourself that you would do.
Well not this time! It's only February 2012 and I began on the first day of the year with the attitude that I was going to go all the way to my lifelong dream of weight and fitness. Today, I am reaffirming that goal and determination.
Will I go the distance? Or will I fail to take the actions required to achieve what I really want? That is what it all boils down to once again.
I have to be fired up. I have to want,really want to reach my dreamed of destination Every Single Day until it becomes a reality. I need to regularly remind myself to keep reaching for the goal. Don't get slack. Drink your water, Take your vitamins, Do some exercise, Measure and track your food. It isn't hard, it is a new pattern to live by. You Can Do It!! So do it!!!

I also need to not only journal on Sparkpeople, but to physically write down what is going on daily. This is helpful to me in taking care of all my business, because my memory ain't what she used to be.

It's all good.. emoticon emoticon

    Don't think of this as just a diet or 'weight loss' program! This is really a life changing, new lifestyle journey of learning to love healthy foods (actually after a while you will be craving the healthy foods!), keeping your body active and enjoying your life beyond measure! Don't concentrate on the scales, they are your biggest enemy because they determine your attitude and how you feel about yourself! If God intended for all of us to be a certain size or a certain weight then that is what we would be! What He intends for us to be is HEALTHY, STRONG and LIVING A LONG HEALTHY HAPPY LIFE! When we learn to keep our focus on Him and not food, everything falls into place! We learn to buy, cook and eat healthy foods and enjoy them! We learn to control our portions and to exercise our bodies without having to go to a gym or purchase expensive equipment! We learn to drink 10 cups of water a day and we learn to track our intake of calories, fats, carbs, sodium, etc! Most importantly we learn to love the person He created us to be and to share His love with others! Don't look back at what has been, it is done and gone forever! Everyday is a new day with new beginnings, new opportunities and God's mercy! Remember...yesterday is gone, tomorrow never comes and it is ALWAYS TODAY! :)

    Love and Blessings,

    We all have setbacks.
    It's what you do afterwards that determines success or failure.
    Move on & count it all joy at the finishline.

    Are you tracking your food too? That really helps me avoid those "oh, this little amount doesn't really count" moments!

    Recognizing what is keeping you from your goals is a good thing because then you can develop a plan on how to change them.
