How it goes

Wednesday, October 29, 2008

I think I've been trying to change too much lately. I seem to want everything to be better RIGHT NOW! So, I've decided to ease up a bit. For instance, I only did about 20 minutes of strength training today, most of it on my arms. Normally, I would be telling myself I should have done the whole forty five minutes. But, I've decided instead to give myself a pat on the back for getting any exercise at all. I'm trying to take a similar approach to my eating. Instead of telling myself I'm not "good" because my eating isn't perfect, I will congratulate myself for the healthy things I am doing. It's my hope that this will be a motivational approach for me.
