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.

    I stopped by your page for this weeks challenge of meeting people from other teams and I am glad I stopped. The title of you blog caught my eye so I had to read it. I was really moved by what you said "This is getting me nowhere, except to feeling worse about myself and moving in the wrong direction from my goals. " This is how I have been feeling lately but hadn't really put it into words. Thanks for sharing!

    Good for you! I start the week by making a YouTube playlist of videos I want to do (tons of videos on YouTube including SP)...I then write on my whiteboard (in my bedroom) what specific videos I am doing each day...I then take each day as it comes, some days I only do one or two 10 min videos, sometimes I do everything I have planned! It's a great feeling and as long as you get in 10 min, great! And ten usually leads to more!

    Step by step, day by day, together we will succeed!
