I ate donuts

Thursday, February 21, 2013

Confession time: I'm scared of failing miserably. I have next to no will power and my husband doesn't help that. I stop buying treats and DH starts buying them. I bought fruit an bread to make toast for breakfast. He went out and bought donuts for breakfast. I had some this morning. I had them yesterday morning too. And last night I forgot that I'd made a new change and I had jack in the box for dinner. And then today my boss asked me to go to lunch with a bunch of my associates and I had a hamburger and fries. I only ate half the burger but it wasn't exactly the healthiest of choices, not that anything on that menu was... but I could have requested soup instead of fries. I could have requested a salad, but when everyone else is eating burgers and mac and cheese smothered in bacon... a iceberg wedge doesn't sound all that delicious. I'm scared.

    Its tough. I second GR8ERJOY's comments though. My worst 'starts' have been when I have tried to change everything at once. Smaller goals are easier to hang onto when your really struggling. I've found that if I do a small amount of exercise - event 10 mins - first thing in the morning it helps my mindset for the day. Good luck!

    It doesn't have to bee too scary. Start small. Instead of thinking of all these things you shouldn't be doing, think of one thing you should do/could do. For me the first step was a healthy breakfast with a decent amount of protien. I just worked on that until it wasn't so hard anymore and now it isn't even something I have to think about anymore. Yes I logged and tried to watch all else while I made that first change, but I knew it wouldn't be perfect right from the start and it wasn't. It still isn't. It may never be. Now I am working on water - this one is very hard for me and I've been working at it a while. I'm SLOWLY working my way up to 8 glasses a day.

Take it one step at a time and do the things that aren't scary first.
