It is easier to make excuses than changes

Thursday, April 04, 2013

Today was a strength rest day. However, I still walked on the treadmill to get my last chance workout in before my weigh-in for the Biggest Loser Spring Melt Off. It paid off - I lost .25 pound. Not much, but great in my eyes because I lost the Easter gain.

The quote that really struck home today from Made to Crave....
"It is easier to make excuses than changes....Getting healthy isn't just about losing weight. It's not limited to adjusting our diet and hoping for good physical results. It's about recalibrating our souls so that we want to change--spiritually, physically, and mentally." Oh, so true. Change is hard. But one step at a time. This book is helping me be honest with myself and my struggle with food.

I have been working on my granddaughter's quilt. Today, I pulled fabrics and think I have decided how I want to do it. I want to try to have it done by April 14th for the baby shower.

Tonight I am watching my grandson for an overnight. He is so cute:)

Daily Goals:
1) Blog -- emoticon
2) Exercise at least 50 minutes. emoticon 52 min
3) Eat at least 5 freggies a day emoticon 6 servings
4) Instead of eating something unhealthy today, I will... stay determined to eat healthy

    Oh, but once we see the excuses for what they are and can stop listening to THAT voice but instead choose differently...what a significiant step.

    WTG Carrie. I could not start a quilt today and have it done by the 14th. I am a lot slower than that. ((HUGS))

    I was tired after work yesterday and on the drive home was giving some thought to not getting on the treadmill.
    However, I gave myself a telling that it would not achieve anything so, once home, I went straight upstrairs, got changed and hopped on the treadmill for 50mins - 3.15miles of walking.
    It is easier at times to make excuses rather than do ..... yesterday I won!

    I've been working on my granddaughter's quilt, too! Anna Grace will be born mid July ad we are so excited that we get to be there for her birth! Then we get to travel to CO to visit the grandsons!

    Even though it is harder, those excuses have to go! Good luck with making the changes you need to to reach your goal weight! emoticon
