Why Can't I Get This Right?

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

Really I know why. Because I keep giving up on myself. Because I don't love myself enough to believe I'm worth it. And because I'm lazy. I tell myself it's too much work to fight against the other person in my house on the healthy eating issues.

So I eat too much fast food, make excuses for eating chocolate and feel extremely guilty.

I know, it's my responsibility to make good choices and to exercise. The excuses have to stop! The guilt and procrastination have to stop. Right now! Today!

The good news is that I can start now. The really good news is that I do know what to do and I know I can do it.

I know that the lies I tell myself are just that...lies. I AM WORTH THE WORK THIS IS GOING TO TAKE. I AM WORTH THE TIME SPENT ON THE TREADMILL AND EXERCISING. I AM WORTH THE EXTRA COST OF HEALTHY FOOD!

I don't want to feel bad anymore. I don't want to feel guilty anymore. I just want to move forward and get healthy and be proud of myself.

    The other person in your house can choose to eat the healthy meals you make or not, but you deserve to be whatever you choose.
    I cook the foods and make the lunches that I think are healthy. If others choose not to eat them or to supplement them with other foods then so be it. you can do this and we will support you.

    It really is all about baby steps...change one thing, make it a habit, and then add another. Building healthy habits is a slow and steady process, but one that is completely doable!

    We all struggle and have our 'down' times. Talk to yourself a lot and tell yourself that you are worth it. emoticon

    I hear you loud and clear, If I could learn to tell myself this when my mind starts lying to my body saying that the chocolate bar will be ok just this one last time.
