Identity Statement

Sunday, May 20, 2012

I got this idea from a Sparkfriend--to write an identity statement--kind of a mission statement for your life and lifestyle--as though you've already gotten to maintenance. It seems to make sense: if you can start living now the way you want to be when you are already successful, it will make that success all the more attainable. goes:

I am an athletic, energetic, optimistic person. I run, bike, hike, and nordic ski, and I love being outside. I exercise just about every day, because I love being healthy, strong, and fit, and I feel so good when I'm active. My fitness also allows me to try new activities on a whim and participate in daily physical chores like gardening without difficulty. Food isn't an especially important part of my life; I view it only as fuel. I follow a vegetarian, low-carb diet, eating mostly fruits and vegetables, beans, and nuts, along with some dairy. I limit my starches and avoid sweets. This combination of regular exercise and healthy eating allows me to be my best, most energetic, happy self, to set a great example for my kids and to look forward to growing older.
