Just Do It Already!!

Sunday, February 10, 2013

I felt like January was such a good month for me. And then there was a girls night, and then a birthday, and then lack of sleep from my kids and getting sick and dealing with my hubby working long hours. You know, life.

I'm so sick of making excuses like life getting in the way. When do you get to a point where exercising daily and eating well are the norm? I know it's going to take hard work, but part of me doesn't feel like I have it in me. All the while I'm getting down on myself making horrible choices for my health, and it's not helping out my weight, waistline, or emotions.

Why??? Why do I keep doing this to myself? Why can't I brake this stupid cycle?? I'm Up I'm Down, I go Around and Around and Around. It's so stupid. I hate it. I just want it to end.

Pray for me please to just do it. Just Do It. A friend asked me today, "Well, what are you going to do about it?" And then in conversation (not about weight) she said something along the lines of "we say we want to do things, but then we never do. We get to lazy or distracted. So did we really want to do those things in the first place?"

Do I want to weigh less? - YES
Do I want to feel better? - YES
Do I want to set a healthy example for my family? - YES
Do I want to feel confident, sexy and accomplished? - YES, YES, and YES

So Common Laura!!! What are you going to do about it?? Get off your whiny ass and plan. Plan for the lack of sleep, plan for the girls nights, the birthday parties the long hours your husband works. Make a plan that no matter what you'll make a good choice. Stop complaining that it's gonna be hard work and just do it! Move your butt every day, eat whole, clean food. Stop giving into food that makes you feel crappy and then weighs you down, physically and emotionally. Get over it. Stop living a lie and start living - FOR REAL!

Geeze self. Thanks for that kick in the ass.

    UGH - I feel like you're talking to ME!!! Seriously - this is my life!!! Same stupid cycle - same stupid "excuses - same stupid enthusiasm, only to be squelched by life........ugh!!

    I think I'm sick enough of it that I'll make a plan too. A plan that I can't lose by! Because without a plan, I'm just floundering around in a sea of good intentions - but good intentions are just that if I don't put them into practice! :-/ UGH

    You're blog was a good kick in the pants! Thank you - - and good luck!!!
