I may never completely free myself from the habit of overeating. The truth is, sometimes I just DON'T CARE about the consequences. My priorities shift depending on my mood and the events of the day. While one day it may seem that looking hot in my skinny jeans is the most important thing on earth, on another day shutting up the nagging voice inside my head that tells me to ''not reach for that piece of cheese or else' IS my #1 priority.
So how do I control the actions of that evil twin that wants to sabotage everything 'the good twin' does? I can't fully control the other side, all I can do is continue persisting and slowly adjusting my habits.
I try to focus on what I want to do: i.e. become a better runner and not so much on what I don't want to do: i.e. eat too much.
Today I ran for 45 minutes- I would have wanted to run for an hour- but 45 minutes on a bad day is a HUGE improvement from a month ago, when I could not make it past 25 minutes for a week in a row.
Slow and steady and strong is the motto I am trying to live by these days.
