Well, this has been on my mind for some time now. So here goesÖ.. this is a conversation between my conscience and myself.
Conscience: Why are you not losing weight?
Me: Iím lifting heavier weights. I need to tone up.
Conscience: You are just plain eating more food than you need. Isnít this true?
Me: I guess I do at times. ďsighĒ
Conscience: Come cleanÖ..you are snacking way too much.
Me: True, but
Conscience: No buts. You can do this. You just donít discipline yourself enough.
Me: I work out hard!
Conscience: Really? Do you push yourself on the elliptical? Could you put the resistance up a little higher and still make it?
Conscience: NO BUTS! Remember!
Me: All RIGHT! Donít scream at me. I get it. Iíve been lazy. Iíll do better.
Conscience: Will you? You said that for Lent you were going to stay off the computer until you got everything done that needed to be done in the mornings. Have you?
Me: Some days. But there have been circumstances. Like sick grandkids.
Conscience: True. So Iíll give you that one. So Lent is half over. What now?
Me: Iím going back to my original plan AND Iím going to stop the grazing during the day. Fruit will be my snack of choice. AND I wonít eat later than 8p.m. of an evening. Iíll watch my portions. We wonít be eating out either! So how is that?
Conscience: Iíll hold you to it and if you mess upÖ.Iíll remind you! That is a promise!!
