One Decision at a Time

Thursday, June 03, 2010

I'm so glad to read other Sparker's blogs and how they are doing well. It may be as small as resisting a temptation or as big as losing 5 lbs that week. Either way it is all contributed to making one decision at a time. That is what I am learning. It's hard for me to say, "I'm going to cut out blizzards from DQ" or "I will get up early 3 times a week to go on a walk before work". What is getting easier is taking it one step at a time. When my alarm goes off that i set early, I have to make the decision to either push snooze, or get up and go for a walk. Lately I have been doing good at making the positive decision to get up. I may be half asleep while I walk, but I always feel good that I make that decision. And those small decisions are and will be turning into new habits! Healthy habits that I didn't think I could push myself to do... the awesome thing is that it doesn't feel like I'm pushing myself, it's a positive decision that I want to make!! I've been working on resisting too much sweet stuff aka extra bad calories. I take it one decision at a time. The other night after I did water aerobics I wanted a blizzard, but i knew that if I gave in, I'd ruin all those calories I just burned... so I made the decision to go home and make a fresh strawberry smoothie instead and got in another serving of fruit! Awesome!!! This morning I was feeling kind of crappy from a conversation I had with my husband. I really wanted a carmel frappe from mcdonalds. I couldn't resist that temptation and got one. BUT!! -> I made the decision to include that into my calories (even though they weren't good calories) for breakfast. So instead of eating more, I ate different than normal so that I would stay in my calorie range. It just makes sense! So... My motto for this month is "One Decision at a Time"!!! Love It!!! emoticon

    That's the way to do it, Jenna! emoticon

    If it's only one thing that you have to overcome, it is easier than looking at all you might have to do in one day.

    I have to admit, I'm partial to Blizzards as well. emoticon Oh well, let's be honest - any kid of ice cream! emoticon

    I'm proud of you! emoticon
