"If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got."

"Choices today will affect tomorrow."

I've been letting my food consumption just 'flow' for the last while, knowing that I wasn't doing myself any favours, but not having the resources to take care of this aspect of myself. I am dealing with the emotional issues that were the basis of this, and as I continue to understand and heal the scars on the inside it is now time to address my body as well.

Over the last years I've had weight fluctuations due to emotions. I've always been very active, and the basic fitness I have from this is what allows me to lapse and to regain composure without other consequences than feeling unfit, 'large', for a while. But I don't want to keep doing this. I want to establish strong, ingrained patterns that are just my nature - healthy, patterns!

I aim to...

Do core exercises for my troublesome sciatica every day
Drink 8 glasses of water daily

I can do this. I want to do this.

"Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what! Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful." Mark Victor Hansen

"To avoid situations in which you might make mistakes may be the biggest mistake of all." Peter McWilliams

"There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."
Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow.

    Hey! Love your status quote - so true. Re the Garmin...I got the Garmin Forerunner 305. It's a little big on the wrist (face size) but that makes it easy to read while on a run. I found it very easy to use - that being said I haven't tried anything fancy with it yet like setting interval timers or racing myself or anything but it's nice that those things are options. They have some on Amazon for a good price or you can try your luck at Quibids.com and see if you can win it in one of their auctions. Let me know what you decide. Happy running!
