One step, one day.. one meal at a time
Wednesday, April 07, 2010
Even though my motivation seems to be M.I.A. I have started following the South Beach diet (again) and have no gone to the gym 2 days in a row.. it's a small start but I think a small start is what I need in order for me to find my motivation again. I am taking one step, one day and one meal at a time.. trying to focus on it instead of the bigger picture. Sometimes I think I phys myself out because I think it's too hard or going to take too long or who cares.. and then I defeat myself. I don't want that to happen again this time...I just need to keep going. I think the hardest part is going and going and doing well and then life happens and I fall off my routine.. getting back into it and making it stick is the hardest part.. but thanks to a SPARK member I have found my way to talk myself back into going.. "If you forget to brush your teeth one night, you wouldn't just never brush them again or think it's pointless... Thank You AL_ROX!!!!!
Things I am trying to remember:
~1 day at a time
~Don't let one mistake or missed day throw me off
~21 days to form a habit
~DON"T GET ON THE SCALE!
Hopefully I can reach my goal in the future, but being a busy working mom who goes to school full time, my days seem to run out of time.. I just have to do what I can...
