What gives us a sense of Entitlement?
Today I end up in the Urgent Care facility with a bulging ear drum. On the way home I thought about how this would impact my sparks. Could I simply choose not to track food today? Did this entitle me to eat comfort food? Could I leave off my walk?
I decided that if I felt well enough to fill out the paperwork at the doctor's office and eat ~ I probably was well enough to track my food.
When it came to comfort food...well I just really didn't care. I went on and ate the things I planned. After I finished those things I really didn't want the sweets that I thought I might deserve.
As for the exercise, well I decided to leave it to in the morning. The wind hurt my ear and I did have some fever. However, I promise myself I will walk twice in the morning.
I am determined to follow through on that promise.
Looking back I wonder how many times I have sabotaged my healthy lifestyle by simply deciding I could get out of something. Not to speak of the times I have eaten things simply because I thought I deserved them. It is just something to think about.
