The Real Fresh Start
Monday, July 22, 2013
Can you "forgive" yourself too much? I ask that question because I can't tell you how many "fresh starts" I have had. Maybe you can relate...It's Monday and I am going to really change my life this time..(fast forward to Wednesday)..."Good grief I cant believe I have eaten so awful for the last two days...I'm starting in the morning and this time I will Do It!!"...(fast forward to Friday).."Did I really just miss an entire week of working out and eat the rest of the lasagna leftovers...might as well give it till Monday"...(Fast Forward to Sunday Night)..."Hmmm, maybe I should look up a diet that really works, like the starve yourself for 2 out of 7 days, now that makes sense!...or I run into a friend who just started the $600/month 2 shake/day diet and I think I will mortgage the house and give that one a try...
In my head I know this is nonsense, yet for some reason I repeat this over and over. I know that just like anything else, it is the intensity that one has for a goal that gets them there. My intensity has had a very low selling price,until today...today I have the tools and the the desire to succeed and I AM GOING TO DO IT! No more selling my success for a pizza and a donut, that leads to binge that I cant bounce back from for three days! I have a stocked pantry and my walking shoes ready for tomorrow. I know my triggers and I am ready to combat them. I have my visual motivation in place. For the first time I realize it is not just about looking better, It is about feeling and being better! Anyone out there ready to join me on my REAL Fresh Start?!!! WE CAN DO THIS!!
