And anther day bites the dust

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

Making it through another day. Now just have to come up with some great goals. Yesterday I just told my sellf MODERATION. Instead of two sausage sandwiches just one. Instead of 6 52oz Dr. Peppers during the day just one. Also I drank my first glass of water in a long time yesterday. Bought myself a super cool cup that reminds me I need to drink water and it keeps it nice and cold for me. Have to get back to tracking, but that always causes me anxiety because I have to actually look at what I'm doing and that throws me into a hopeless feeling. I have to face it though. I did spend about 3 hours in the garden last night. I weeded, shoveled dirt, and tied up tomatoes, and cleaned out the areas around my fruit trees. I really felt the exercise this morning..... Ughhhh!!! but yeah me I actually did something that involved movement.

Things just keep getting better and I'm just moving along down the right path. The boys are on board and supportive. Has anyone else watched "The Weight of the Nation". Started watching last night and it really hit me how much of it's true. I open my eyes and looked around and sure enough what did I see..... More overweight and obese people than healthy people. I don't want that to be me! I don't want to have diabetes, or congestive heart failure. I don't want my joints to fail and my liver to have issues. So here I am again day number to declaring that I will get healthy. Some things just shouldn't be a choice, this is one of them. I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired. Even some of my bouts of depression can be tracked back to my unhealthy habits. So I'm gonna change! I'm going to free myself! I'm going to WIN!

    You have a great attitude! I think the first step is changing our mind about things and that's what you're doing. Baby steps are the way to go so you don't get overwhelmed and give up. You WILL do it if you stay focused on what you want and just keep going a little bit at a time!
