PUSH THAT TUSH – Personal Best

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Thursday, November 29, 2012

I Still Fall Into That Trap Of Feeling
That I Fell Short When I Don’t Ace A Challenge
Instead Of Recognizing That All Of The Effort And
All Of The Better Choices Made Along The Way
Still Makes The Attempt A Positive Experience.

It’s Like Those Posters That Say:
“No Matter How Slow You Go You’re Still Lapping Everyone On The Couch”

I Still Have My Monsters In The Closet…
I Had To Fight The Carb Cravings Again…But I’m Getting There.
I Almost Bought A Box Of Hostess Yodels Snack Cakes (For A Last Hurrah)
??? What The Hell Was I Thinking ????
Fortunately They Had Sold Out.

So I Feel Like I’m Conquering My Demons … One At A Time.

I Constantly Need To Remind Myself That
The All Or Nothing Attitude Is BAD.
It Sets Me Up For Failure.

Personal Best Means Making The Better Decision
Anytime...Anywhere...Any Whatever.
It Doesn’t Require Strict Adherence
(Although…That Would Be Ideal)
It Requires Intelligent Common Sense Thinking
And Always Trying To Choose The 'BETTER' Option

So No Guilt,
No Thoughts Of Surrender,
No Giving Up.
Just Keep Aiming For The Better Choice And Keep Moving Forward.

And Every Time I Get The Urge To Push That Tush
I’m Going To Try A Few Minutes Here And There
And Do Some
Sparkpeople Total Body Sculpting Exercises
So My Personal Best Butt... Gets A LITTLE Bit Better emoticon

    You hit the nail on the head! Every decision is an opportunity to improve yourself, and in some cases an opportunity to start over. If I fall down 100 times, I will get up and start again 101 times! Thanks for sharing the struggles that so many of us can relate to. We are a community of people marching forward!

    I ran my very first 5K a year ago. I finished in under 42 minutes. I did another in May--in under 38 minutes. Haven't done any more but I've done more than LOTS of people! So I am doing super!

  Sheryl, We know we love ya... the majority of the time you do it, and here and there, you think these things
and once in while, chocolate, carbs, second and third helpings might call your name,
Mmmm, waving a ya,

just the rest of us, but your success rate is above average and your so darn honest, that's why you talk reason into yourself
and remind the rest of us.

This is one of the many reasons, we think you are charming and inspiring.

Another reminder,
your great sense of humor ,
makes us want to read your commentaries
and make exercise, and the rest more interesting, and thing
we want to push ourselves to do.

    All or nothing IS bad. But I think a lot of us tend in that direction. One choice at a time and it's not about perfection. I love the quote about no matter how slow you are going you are still lapping those on couch.

    So glad your back. Missed these blogs. I had four days under my belt and then the carb monster reared its ugly head. The thing is I knew it was going to happen. But you know what? I felt like crap after. Bloated and nasty. So back at it today. Staying off the carbs that is.
