My, oh, my.
It's been one heck of a weekend... ok, week.
I've went from being the great, near to perfect dieter... To splurging like a mad woman with only one thought in mind, "I'll go back to being that near to perfect dieter tomorrow."
So between the Chinese food, cookies, Arby's, Little Debbie cakes, and fried chicken strips (I'm sure there's more in there but that's probably the most damaging) I kept saying, "Tomorrow."
But after stuffing my face with a hand full of cookies last night I realized that I had been saying tomorrow for the past 4 years (since my daughter was born). I realized that I had been carrying around this morbidly obese body with the hopes of "tomorrow" but never working towards tomorrow.
I know that I have to stay focused on myself, my health, and my eating or I'll be wishing for tomorrow until the day I died.
The thing is, we never live in tomorrow, but always in today. We never live in yesterday, but deal with the consequences of our actions of yesterday, today. So why would I put off a healthy life, a healthy body, and a healthy mind when I'll never see it because tomorrow never comes.
My promise to myself is to not live for tomorrow, but to live for today. I never want to look back on yesterday with a regret; "Maybe I shouldn't have ate that." "I wish I would've exercised like I was suppose to."
So here's to today
