Pretending...I am doing AWESOME

Thursday, June 21, 2012

I really don't do well if I ask myself if I want to exercise. I never do because I am tired first thing in the morning. Who wants to leave the bed for that when one is half asleep? But, I have years of exercising first thing in the morning. Because I don't usually ask if I want to.

I have been floundering a bit on my eating. It is showing up on the scale and I am not very happy. But, I know what I need to do to turn it around. So today instead of counting it as emoticon I am telling myself I am already succeeding. It will make today's choices easy. Right? Right!

    You are succeeding when you don't give up! That is half the battle. I often don't want to exercise because I am too tired. I know it will give me more energy so I just do it. I always feel better afterwards. I learned from someone at the gym: I often regret not coming to the gym/working out, but once she has done her workout she never regrets it. I often remind myself of that mantra.

    As for the food I too am struggling. I have come to believe that anything worth having is worth fighting for! Our health is worth the struggle! emoticon

    You are worth it!!!!

    You are succeeding! You prove it as you think through your next step and put one foot in front of the other. Way to go!! emoticon

    As they say, 'fake it 'til you make it' :)
    And yes, you are already succeeding. This is not a linear journey, lots of hills and valleys here. Whether day 1 or day 101, make today count.
    You're well on your way!

    Exercising when half asleep can be a good thing... Before you know it you are done. :) It is a great way to start the day.
    No need to pretend, you are doing awesome... what we you like just a few years ago... what changes have you made.
    Every moment is an opportunity to start anew, You are eating healthy, You are succeeding. You have made many changes and your awareness/insight is showing.

    As a man thinketh...

    You are on the right track. The whole self fulfilling prophecy thing really works. The more positive statements and action statements you make, the more real it becomes.

    Remember, when you say you don't want something, it is always your choice and you choose not to at this time. It makes it easier than saying "I never."

    Hope your day was a good one.
