Little Lies

Sunday, July 29, 2018

Super quick backstory. I started back in 2006 with Spark. I would do amazing every couple of years, then fall off taking care of myself. Not a unique story, I know.

A couple of months ago I turned 37 years old and was FEELING IT! My hips hurt every single morning, my feet hurt in a way I had never experienced before, and my sleep apnea was worsening.

I have had it with feeling awful.

I always start out when I’m fed up.

I always quit as soon as a major life event occurred.

Ok, so now I know that desire isn’t enough to carry me through. If I am going to make this lifestyle the REAL me forever I have to do something ( a lot of things) differently than in the past.

So, what about those little lies? I’m realizing I told myself lies everyday.

Mindful eating makes me eat faster. (Not if you do it the right way!)

I don’t need a schedule. (HA!)

I can do this on my own. (Yes, secrets and trying to manage EVERYTHING myself works great... NOT!)

I can eat whatever I want at a Party or Event and just workout more the next day. (This thinking might as well be the final nail in my health coffin)

Lies and fibs and good intentions have taken me from this
To This....


Not the before and after photo I wanted.

What’s done is done and now I need to truly learn from my mistakes and innocent little lies.

I’m happy, motivated, and sticking to my Beck Weightloss Workbook.
