Push That Tush -- Can't Lie to Myself

Tuesday, March 19, 2013


WE BOTH KNOW WHEN YOU'RE IN DENIAL PINOCCHIO

Delay is the deadliest form of denial.
- C. Northcote Parkinson

“Even as your body betrays you, your mind denies it.”
¯ Sara Gruen, Water for Elephants

We live in a world of denial, and we don't know what the truth is anymore.
- Javier Bardem

“you can't get away from yourself by moving from one place to another.”
¯ Ernest Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises

I re-invented my image so many times that I'm in denial that
I was originally an overweight Korean woman.
- David Bowie

Procrastination with exercise is one of my problems....
Denial of eating larger portions is another.

so when the scale stays on the same number
or creeps up a bit....
I know it's not a problem with the scale or too much exercise
{... that ain't me...I have never gained because I built muscles...ever...}
and I know when it's salt related because my kankles return ... full force.
But sometimes I lie to myself about commitment.
It takes a lot of effort to keep going...
and sometimes it takes a lot just to maintain the progress I've made thus far
but
Not Pushing....is delaying....
and not moving forward is denial of things I want to have.
The body responds to the care you give it.
If I deny it my attention ...it WILL betray me
and it does it in subtle ways that
often I can't see it or feel it, until the damage is done.

i Gotta keep PUSHING.

    One day at a time. Make it happen just for today! I didn't exercise for the last 2 weeks, but I did today! And then there are days where it just doesn't happen, but we're not going to let that stop us are we!!!

    Oh yeah! It's not easy to face the reality sometimes that it could be US that's the problem, not the scale. BUT when we finally wrap our head around that, we progress. You're not alone! HUGS and emoticon

    Kankles?

Yes, denial is a problem I work on everyday, but we can do it! Faster we do the greater our progress will be.

Have a great week,

    You are so right. It is daily pushing yourself..even when you do not want to exercise or you might eat a bit too much. You can do it. Stay strong.

    I kept thinking...if it were easy, we would have done it already. LOL But so worth it to go through the ups and downs to not carry around all that extra weight. We know this!
Have a great day.

    As I read your blog this jumped off your page and smacked me in the head....kinda like the "I coulda had a v-8" commercial.

so when the scale stays on the same number
or creeps up a bit....
I know it's not a problem with the scale or too much exercise
{... that ain't me...I have never gained because I built muscles...ever...}

This is so very ME. I too needed to see this today. I have had so many stops and restarts along the way and i'm trying to tell myself I got this but makes you wonder when will I ever really get it???????
