Is it all about the numbers?
Wednesday, February 16, 2011
Changing ones lifestyle to add exercise and eat correctly is so easy to say, but it certainly isn't as easy as it sounds.
It seems lately that it is all about the numbers.
The number of steps
The number of calories
The number of veggies and fruits
The number of glasses of water
The number on the scale
The number of body measurements
The number of meals a day
The number of minutes you exercise
The number of miles
And on and on and on.
Today the light went on in my head and I realize that it isn't really about the numbers at all, but about the way you feel after you complete a day with the right numbers. It's about the changes in the way your body feels and looks, when you get the numbers correct.
Yesterday the numbers were frustrating. Today not so much. I do look at and pay attention to the numbers, but today I am going to stay focused on the benefits of adhering to them.
