Renewing my commitment to myself
Friday, May 31, 2013
Recently, I have been eating all the wrong foods, snacking a lot, and just plain ignoring being healthy. I have been exercising, but not making a lot of effort at it. As a result, I have gained weight. What am I thinking? Am I even thinking at all? It is as if not thinking makes the food have no calories and the exercise burns a lot more than it really does. This is crazy thinking!
Last night, as I was eating a meal out with DH and enjoying onion rings (one of several not-good-for-me foods of the day), I had a big ah-ha moment. This is getting me nowhere, except to feeling worse about myself and moving in the wrong direction from my goals.
Today is a new start! I am done with ignoring what I am doing or not doing. I am going to track all of my food and aim to stay within the SP ranges. I am going to exercise with intention. I am going to be a realist about living a good life, but still working toward my goals. Today is the day when I remind myself that I am worth it. Today is a beginning.
