One Step at a Time
Friday, November 14, 2008
I've been making some progress towards becoming healthier. I recently have been making better choices about what I eat. I've had a problem with temptation of indulgent foods for the last few months. Each time I was tempted I gave in and said "yes, I'll have that." Well last night I said "No!" Let me begin by saying I don't think eating dessert is bad. I was just eating it at every given opportunity. I feel if I just cut back in the indulgences then it will make my journey toward the best me an easier one. So last night I went to see my mom and she offered me ice cream and though it would have been delicious I finally said no. I worry every time I go over to see my mom, because she's bound to shove some kind of chocolate, pie, or ice cream under my nose. I finally I didn't give in. I'm so proud of myself. I just need to remember that I should not say yes all the time. It's nice to have a cookie but make it every once in a awhile. Not everyday.
Also as a way in progress physically I decided that I need to renew my gym membership. It is just too cold and soggy for me to exercise outdoors. I grabbed a financial assistance form a couple days ago, filled it out, and turned it back in the same day. Hopefully I'll get a reward letter soon. I really can't wait to get back on the running track and elliptical. Those were the two things that helped me to succeed in the past and I know that they'll be my key to future success. I also have a coupon that will waive my joiners fee so that would help me out greatly. I really cannot wait to get back in the gym!
I'm so excited about what is to come in my future. I've yet o reach my ultimate goal of 135 lbs but I know I can do it. I'm not that far away. I weighed in today at 159.5 so that makes my goal less than 25 lbs away. I know I can do this. I will do this!
