I can do it!

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

These are the things within my power:

Getting rid of negative, self-destructive, self-loathing talk.
Making good food choices.
Getting up and working out.
Finding something to love about me...EVERY DAY!
Drinking my water.
Eating my fruits and veggies.
Resisting punishing myself when I fall short of goal.
Letting myself be human.

Things NOT within my power.

Magically losing 100 lbs.
Being perfect in every way.
Time travel back to when I was skinny.
Making a double bacon cheeseburger have 100 calories.

These things I can't control, change or do anything about so I'm going to forget about them. I'm human and therefore flawed. Allowances will be made for that. Forgiveness will be dished out with every chocolate bar I eat. Reward will be given for every chocolate bar I don't eat.

I'm going to keep up the promises I made to myself...get healthy for my babies...feel comfortable in my own skin...and most of all, feel better about me!
