How Getting Fat Is Like Maxing Out a Credit Card

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

Getting fat is like maxing out a credit card... it's so easy to do but takes an incredible amount of discipline, time and energy to fix, all the while you are wondering "how did I ever let it get this bad?"

Heading In the Right Direction

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

Today I wimped out after only 40 minutes on the treadmill at a 3 mph pace and 1% incline. I like to do 60 minutes with a 5 minute cool down, but I wasn't feeling it today. I have a sore throat and just feel kind of run down.

I'm looking at 40 minutes as a huge victory over where I was even a month ago, instead of a total failure.

I'm trying not to be totally Type A about the journey. I read a quote recently, it went something like this, "just because you dropped one egg doesn't mean you should drop the other 11." I am trying to keep that in mind and be my own cheerleader. I'm far too good at being my own worst critic.

    I'm dealing with the same attitude struggle--trying to lose the perfectionist attitude and deal with one decision at a time.
At least being aware that we have a tendency to be our own worst enemies means we can work to change!
Have a good day and hang in there!

    Good positive attitude, glass half full vs. half empty! Self criticism is useful if you use it to push yourself, but not get down on what you've accomplished and your hard work. Keep going! emoticon
