No Thank You Holidays
Thursday, November 29, 2012
So according to my Wii, I am 1.5 pounds away from being in the healthy BMI. This will be a first in my life. I am so motivated right now to finish this. It's been a very good week.
We are having a work lunch party for a coworkers birthday on Friday, and our supervisor offered to pick up everyone tacos. I said "no thank you". I told her I'd just bring myself some chicken and eat the salad that I am bringing, and I told her that I was excited to reach the healthy BMI. Her response was "why not just wait until after the holidays".... because there will always be more holidays or celebrations.. because I want this more than I want tacos or cake.... because this is my life, at this moment, and I am not putting anything on hold.... because I know I can do this and I have the momentum right now... because it feels good... because I can.... So, no thank you.... and I will be saying the same thing to those Christmas goodies. I am worth more than that....my health is worth more to me than a cookie. So how about I just finish it (and then keep it up) now... here and now.
