3 reasons/excuses on why my diets and exercise plans have not been well executed in the past.

Sunday, September 16, 2018

For my team - 2018 Fall 5% Challenge Community

Today's assignment is to list your 3 reasons/excuses on why your lifestyle (diets and exercise) plans have not been well executed in the past. Write a strategy for each one to keep yourself on track for 8 weeks. Let's learn from our past behaviors and make this our best Challenge ever!

1 - Oh just going to have a few chips-or cookies Well you know what happen I ate the whole bag !!!!
Not bringing then in the house is not a option because of hubby..
Strategy - Always have enough healthy snacks on hand. Stay away from sweets and chips, do not even try to have a small portion.

2 - Procrastination - Putting off starting a healthy eating plan. I'll start next Monday and Monday never came.
Strategy - I have already started to take action to change this by joining SparksPeople and tracking my food intake. I am determined to continue.

3 - Lack of Motivation and Enthusiasm - Because of health issues,being put on lots of meds.'and having to quit my job I just gave up caring.
Strategy - Fear has been my motivation, caused by a visit to my heart doctor. He told me if I didn't lose the weight I was going to have a heart attack and die. That's a pretty strong motivation, don't Ya think?

What have you learned along the way that has really helped you?

I have learned that if I stay focused I can do this
.If I make the right choices the weight will come off and I will improve my health.
That the saying " It Works If You Work It " is true, you just have to put in the effort.
That Rome wasn't built in a day, that it has taken me along time to gain all this weight and it's going to take time to lose it.
Most important I think , I learned not to give up !!!!

    Yes, its deadly -that first bite of a favorite treat causes the landslide, know it all too well. Also emotional eating when things pile up and frustrations occur as has been happening recently, just one thing after the other. I have learned to meditate and just breathe as I have been getting wound up too much lately. A regular practise takes the edge off and helps with pain too by allowing your muscles to relax more. Who ever does these challenges really thinks up some great ideas -I have seen it over and over in friend's blogs. Glad you are taking one on!

    Seems to me your excuses are the same as mine...probably everyone else's too. I know you can do this Bella. You have all the tools you need just get the right one out of the tool bag when you need it. Keep going. Never stop and never look back.
