No matter how hard I try...or how much I fight.. it seems I can't handle staying con track and be constant to acheive muy goals. Right nos I'm wrecked and totally negative... I know...I have all the theory, but can't put it into practice in a constant way and honestly, I don't believe in myself anymore...Just needed to vent it in a place I know I am well understood...

I'm gonna bet that you make a whole bunch of rules to live by, go all-out-and-all-in for a few days or weeks, then hit one of life's stumbling blocks, and suddenly it all falls apart and you feel like a failure.

Does the phrase "biting off more than you can chew" resonate with you? Human beings can only focus on so much at any given time. The way to make permanent change is by tackling just a couple of habits at one time and then making them PERMANENT.

If you're biggest downfall is drinking soda or sweet tea, for instance, just focus on replacing that habit for a few weeks until you feel like you've got it down. If it's late evening snacking, make a rule that you eat something filling at 8pm and then you're done for the day except for water. If you can't get yourself to the gym every day, make a rule that you have to do __________ at home on the days that you miss the gym.

Some of these things will take MONTHS to sink in and become routine. So, don't beat yourself up for being normal.

How do you teach your children good habits? One after the other, month after month, building on the foundations that you laid before. You wouldn't expect your little ones to go from never picking up their toys to having a spotless room in just a couple of days, right? No, first you teach them to make the bed in the morning and put their toys in the toy box at night. When they're a little older you teach them to hang up or put away their clothes. Maybe how to dust their shelves. Eventually, how to vacuum and wash their windows. By that time they're teenagers!

So, take a deep breath, give yourself a loving hug, and pick one or two things to work on this month. Put all your focus on those things, and let the rest go for now. You'll know when you've got them down and are ready to tackle something new. And you'll feel so good about yourself!!!

    I go through the same thing all the time! But I think the main thing is to keep trying and not giving up!

    It IS a long journey! And you probably are sabotaging yourself in ways you don't even realize. Soda? Fast food sometimes? Take a hard look and make a plan. And realize; you didn't put it on all at once, it isn't going to come off that fast either!
Good luck and remember, every day is a new chance to do it right!

You can if you want

First thing that came up to my mind once I woke up this moning was "day off from gym as I feel exhausted". So, when hb asked me after work "are you going to the gym?", the fight btw my lack of will power and the urge to take another step to reach my goal really hurt inside. Finally, my desire to do the right thing was more powerful, and I worked out for 1 full hour, burning 642kcal! emoticon Good girl, Ana! Way to go!!! emoticon

Now, I am sleepy as hell, so I think Ive earned my right to have a good night rest, don't you think?

Victorious day!

Monday, April 14, 2014

I have felt a bit down today- blame it on the full moon we had today...add some mother-in-law portion... But, instead of running into my normal emotional eating, I recharged my batteries at gym. I feel totally proud of myself for making 100% healthy choices flaws!! yeehaaa!!
