Honesty.. it's about time!!!

That's my word for my journey.
I'm putting it out there so that I become RESPONSIBLE.... and find BALANCE.
I tracked my food and exercise for a few days..then I stopped...the weekend.
Today started off as a great day. I was tracking. I even pushed myself to exercise for 45 minutes..dancing in my kitchen. I'm not feeling so tired after work because I'm taking liquid vitamins...love them!!
Then, after I exercised (something good), played with the dog a bit till he was tired out ( guilty that he is stuck inside all day and it's too cold to have him outside)..... I poured myself a cocktail and sat in front of the computer and tried to forget all the aggravation from work today. WHY do I let the small stuff bother me? I'm better than this!
Well, one cocktail led to another....and then I went on Spark to track. I was being honest..putting my beverages and my dinner plan on my tracking. Well...if I eat what I planned to I would be so over my calories for the day. No wonder I gained weight! Honesty. Being honest with myself here.
I was going to revamp my dinner but I'm hungry! I want to eat what I planned. I know I shouldn't let one (or many) bad choices give me a FREE card to eat whatever I want.... but tonight I'm going to. I'm going to enjoy my dinner, even if I am over my caloric intake for today and I'm going to wake up tomorrow with a fresh mind and a new perspective.
And I'm going to use exercise help reduce my stress.
It's time to be totally, TOTALLY honest with me. It's not easy, but I'm going to do it. I've come too far. I'm moving forward, and I'm doing it by being HONEST with ME!!
Whew.... I feel so good. I've taken the first step to a new me. Being honest with ME. The most difficult step...but I'm doing it. A bit scary though...but I'm strong. I have confidence in me!1
