Self talk

I don't know how to keep myself motivated and inspired to workout.

I'm too hard on myself and I know it, so trying the list of things to do each day (# of fruits/veg. # of glasses of water, # of workout minutes) mostly just makes me feel guilty when I don't reach the personal goals I set for myself.

I sometimes think, "start small" and then I try to delight in the little successes of NOT stopping at the delicious bagel place on the way to work or NOT eating something other than a salad for lunch.

I don't want to start over here, but then I think, "well maybe I should". You know. So I can get that spark back.

I'm 30 now and am still processing what this means. I'm in many ways afraid of the changes that will occur in the next decade and in other ways I'm delighted.

Right now, though, I know it's most important for me to get a schedule and stick to it.

Exercise is not optional.
