The motto 'The choices we make for the life that we live" is so true for my life. I am thinking about that right now as I sit here writing this. I am sucking on a sugar free hard candy. I came home from my friend Geri's and I am so unhappy and upset about something in my life that I could just eat. But no instead I choose a sugar free candy to suck on instead. Such a better choice. This reminds me of many choices I have made. These choices have made me a healthier better person. The day I choose to purchase a new treadmill as my other one died I knew I had made a good choice. Yes I had to make payments on it but it was still a good thing to do. When I told myself that if I was going to eat something I knew I didn't need and that I should be willing to work it off I knew that was a good choice. When I took the left over M&M's to Geri's so they would not be around to temp me that was another good choice. I believe that in this life style change it is all about the choices we make. No one can make them for us. We get to do that. I love the fact I get to choose. I do know what is best for me. It's my body I know how it works. I get to choose to eat more protein and less carbs due to my hypoglycemia. I chose to take Group Power weight lifting classes to learn about good form and to help build serious muscles. I love the fact I made that choice. I do know that we also learn from the bad choices we have made. When I decided to eat a clean diet that was a good choice. But one day I decided to eat a corn dog and a 1/2 a candy bar that was bad choice as those things made me sick. Not use to eating that stuff. So when I think back at all the good choices I have made that makes me so dang proud of myself. It also reminds me of how far I have come. It also tells me that I can do anything I set my mind to doing. That I am in control of my life style change. And for me that is a good thing. Love that..........!
