Many of us have heard:
“If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten.” Anthony Robbins
Making changes makes a difference. Yesterday's visit to the Dr. proved that. Instead of reaching my goal... I gained a pound and my A1c went up .5 while still good, not the direction I like. Granted I could not go to the pool and exercise the way I usually do because of my back spasms, but I did not have to comfort eat. He suggested that I be careful during the holidays, I told him that last year I lost two pounds over the holidays. I think the reason things did not end up so bad is what I am doing on a daily basis.
This is a cautionary tale, it reminds me that my actions, or lack of action, influences the outcome. So it becomes a matter of what I desire most. If I want it I find a way to make it happen. When I smoked and wanted a cigarette, I excused myself to go out to have a smoke. Now I excuse myself to get my walk in. Yes it is all my choice. There are no excuses, it is all up to me.
Here's to taking the actions to get me to my goal.
