Debunking Myths in My Mind
Friday, May 04, 2012
So in the last two months and 4 days, I've debunked the following myths:
1. I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR EXERCISE. Bull. I have LOTS of time in a day where I was eating and zoning out. I have time for ME - so I can make time for exercise, EVEN though my brother has moved in and I'm helping take care of him. Anyone can work in 10-15 mins of exercise throughout the day, even on the days when you can't do the hour workout.
2. I AM TOO TIRED TO EXERCISE. Bull. I was too tired all the time because I was treating my body like crap. So I had no energy. I was filling it with food that wasn't nutritious and didn't give me what I need to function properly. Exercise makes me energetic - and when I get tired, it's the GOOD kind of tired. Not the sluggish feeling of too many carbs and major depression.
3. TRACKING NUTRITION IS TOO MUCH TROUBLE. Bull. It only takes a few minutes to track it with the Sparkpeople Nutrition Tracker. I used to spend way more time zoning out on Facebook games.
4. I DON'T HAVE TIME TO PACK MY LUNCH/PLAN MEALS/WEIGH FOOD, ETC. Bull x three. Packing my lunch only takes about 15-20 mins in the morning and that includes weighing and measuring, packing, AND making a protein smoothie.
So.. talking back to the voices in my head, in this case, is healthy.
I GOT THIS.
