What is discipline? Some thoughts from a very frustrated chubby lady.
I need to make sure its a really good reason for losing, when it gets tough it has to get me through the hard spots. Those times I just don't feel like it or let my life step on my toes. I just decide "not today" I'm to ________( fill in the blank)
I need to make sure I do one small thing over and over again. Baby steps! Every single day till it is ingrained in me. I've been living this way for a very long time… lets face it things need to change. But baby steps.. will get me there.
I need watch what urges I have that act against my goals.. Watch how my thoughts affect my actions. I have habits I do ALL THE TIME…I just keep doing them, its easier I guess. but not any more , i am willing to focus and stick too not letting the urges and habits just take over. which will involve planning.
I need to Pay attention to my excuses, and how I rationalize what I am doing or not doing. I do this a lot. Unfortunately… this must stop.
I Really need to notice the benefits of that small change I am making. Is it my head is clear to think, do my pants feel loose, am I moving easier not so much pain? This is learning to turn inward and make it stick because doing it makes me happier and healthier to enjoy life.
I found that when I stick to it, I always feel better. Be it exercising, and eating well. But it is so darn easy to go down that path of least resistance. I'm back , I'm still struggling. still trying to work on it. I'm really glad I"m here at sparks. I feel this is where I can make it work.
