Out of my "Comfort" Zone

Friday, February 24, 2012

When we think of getting OUT of our "comfort" zone, we often think that we will be doing something that is uncomfortable to us. While that is true, it's also my opinion that giving up something that is comfortable is taking myself out of that "comfort" zone. Make sense?

Getting back to SparkPeople, getting back to healthy choices, walking away from unhealthy foods, and exercising more may not seem like a huge shift or being uncomfortable, but it really least for me.

It's interesting that when I make up my mind to do something, I always end up dodging huge boulders, taking detours, etc. because I get faced with obstacles that try to deter me. Case in point: yesterday, my husband brought home donuts!! And not just any donuts! They were the small, powdered sugar know...the ones you can eat four of and not even realize you've eaten any at all, except for the powdered sugar all over your shirt!! Yes, I know you know what I'm talking about!! :)

It was hard for me to ignore those donuts that sat on my counter all day long! It was OUT of my "comfort" zone, if you know what I mean! But, I didn't eat the first one I'm proud to say! This morning, I put that bag of donuts out of my sight! "Out of sight, out of mind!"

Guess I need to reevaluate where my comfort "zone" is these days to stay on track and to be successful!

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts. You are so right, giving up those "comfort" foods definitely takes you out of your comfort zone. It is so easy to fall into eating them, thinking "Just this one won't hurt" and then 4 later you are feeling guilty and mad.

Good for you, it is not easy to resist foods staring you in the face!
