Owning My Truth
Wednesday, February 27, 2013
The truth - I've struggled the last week and as a result at this week's weigh-in I gained two pounds.
The truth - Despite knowing all the mantras about losing weight slowly is healthier and easier to keep off, I want instant gratification. I want to wave a magic wand and look like a super model.
The truth - Some days a big fat juicy cheeseburger is the only thing that sounds appetizing when I face a refrigerator full of healthy fruits and vegetables. And on those days I give in and head to (insert favorite fast food joint here).
The truth - I cheated yesterday and cut yesterday's workout short because I just wasn't feeling it.
The truth - healthy living is DIFFICULT.
The truth - When I do binge and eat too much I feel miserable afterward. Not only do I feel guilty, but I physically feel ill from the bloating in my stomach.
The truth - Today's Zumba class felt good and I didn't want it to end.
The truth - Healthy food can taste good, I just need to change the way I shop and cook.
The truth - I do get a rush when I look in the mirror and I see positive changes.
The truth - The fact that everyone around me is rooting for me to succeed fills me with love.
The truth - Happiness is a matter of perspective. Today I choose to be happy despite my struggles.
The truth - I can do this.
