Today i've read blogs and message boards and they all say the same thing....poor me. You know what this is a journey that only ME can take on our own. There is no magic pill, word, exercise, or food that is going to do this for us. We have to have some faith in ourselves and be strong for us. Today is about us. Taking control of what we put in our mouths and taking control over the movement that we make. The time for excuses has come to pass. Now is the time to begin strong and stay strong.
I put this out there because if you bite it write it, hold you accountable to you. If you choose pizza don't pity yourself just move on. Next time choose a salad with that pizza. baby steps is what it is going to take. If you start eating all that is in the pantry, check it out before you eat it ;and decide if that is what you really want to do or is there something else that is needed. Exercise not all that you think it should be? then move more. Put the cart back in the coral at the store, park farther away from the building. drink an extra water or hey quit the diet colas except on occasion. It is all within our grasps, we just have to reach for it.
I write this blog for ME. Not anyone else. I need to know that I have made choices and some not so good but others that were awesome and I followed through. I have slacked on the exercise as I guess I felt it wasn't working for me last year. Was it the exercise or was it ME? that is the question. So i've decided to be honest with myself and so far i've lost 2.4 pounds in two weeks. Nope not a lot but from someone who was going up up up that is awesome. so I tell ya don't give up on ;you. Grab a friend and head for a nice walk.
