Im giving up too!

Tuesday, March 29, 2011

Yup. Im giving up too. Too, as in Im too tired to exercise. Im feeling too bad to eat well. Im too fat to wear a swimsuit. This is battle against obesity is too hard. Im too tired to get out of bed. Im too busy to spend time with my family. Its too hot/cold/wet to go outside for a walk. Too, as in Ill have dessert, too. Ill take on that project, too. Too should mean an addition to something, but for me that word has turned into something that takes away from the life I could have. So, Im giving up too! Im going to leave some Post-It notes around with the word too on them. Maybe then I can catch myself saying too and really consider whether the too is adding or subtracting from the life I want to live.

    Not real hot! Well, I've managed to delete "too" from my vocabulary, but I haven't added in "exercise." I seem to have lost my focus. Struggling on, though!

    I salute you and encourage you on your valiant quest. The word "try" has all but been driven from my vocabulary. May the toos be well!

    You can never have too much motivation posted around!
Try this with your post it notes: before you are allowed to eat one morsel of food in the morning, you must do the exercise on the post it note you have put on the fridge, can be a brisk 10 minute walk, a short 7-10 minute Spark video, etc.
Before you can touch one key on the computer, you must perform the task you have put on your monitor with the post it note. So you think of something and post it before you go to bed things that need doing. Make them short, try to make them fun or interesting, but anything to get you moving.. Do this every day, and soon it will become a habit..
You can do it too!!

    Too bad....


But I think that simple is best.... if the "too" is becoming TOO much, you are free to ditch it.
