It all starts today

Monday, January 07, 2013

So my last few days as an unhealthy person were not as great as I thought they would be. I wanted to give myself a true start date so that I could enjoy all my favorite, high fat, totally bad for me foods. The thing is every time I had the opportunity to buy fast food, i turned it down. Everytime I went for something bad in the fridge all I could think about was the calories. So I didn't "pig out" like I planned to. Oh well, it makes it easier to start fresh. I will still eat the foods I love, and I know I will, just not as much or as often. Decided not to join a gym just yet. I did go out and buy a stationary bike, an exercise ball, some weights, and tension ropes. I will work out at home so no one has to look at my big butt. When I get in the habit of working out and have lost a few pounds I will feel better about spending the money for a gym membership. Still very scared I will fail, but gonna take it one day at a time.

    Small baby steps is the way to go!

    Pick one small goal & work on that till you achieve it & make it a habit. step 2.....pick another small goal & work on that one until you achieve it & make it a habit. Pretty soon you will be well on your journey to a healthier lifestyle.

    REMEMBER.....sometimes it is one step back & 2 steps forward. emoticon

    The fact that you weren't able to eat all of that unhealthy food should show you that you do have what it takes in you to set up some limits. But also remember, not all dieting is unpleasant. There are plenty of good things to look forward to when you are restricting calories.And that's not even considering the benefits you will see in yourself as you make progress. Glenn
