Recognizing weakness is necessary in becoming stronger.
I've realized that stress, boredom, seeing someone else eating a trigger food, etc can lead me to the fridge and cupboard.
Another realization is that I am not the strongest of finishers in general. I always shoot out of the gate sprinting in my healthy life endeavors, but lose motivation mid race, and end up dropping out of the race entirely.
At this point, I am realizing that walking, even at a snail's pace across the finish line is better than not finishing at all. The race is not for the swift. What matters is that I am in the race and that I am trying.
So how do I move forward? It comes back to the inspiring body pledge of allegiance that I posted in my previous blog. I promise myself that I will stay in the race, no matter what. I will not berate myself for my current struggle with sprinting. Instead I will celebrate the fact that I am walking, at least. I will appreciate my journey.
