Tonight I was debating what I should have for dinner when that phrase popped into my head. I really wanted a burger and fries, but I hadn't planned for it, so I didn't have enough calories left for the day. That's when I thought, "man it's so unfair that some people can eat whatever they want, whenever they want and not have to worry about it, but I have to meticulously watch every single thing I eat, and yet I still gain weight!" Then I realized I was just being silly and childish.
OF COURSE it's not fair! It's life, and life isn't fair! It's a crazy concept, and yeah it kind of sucks, but I think the sooner we accept it for what it is, the happier and more productive we'd all be. I know that that's easier said than done, but learning to accept things for what they are is something I am working on every day because I know I'll never really be happy until I'm ok with what I've got.
Yes, I will always have to be aware of what I'm eating, and I will always have to fit in some time for working out if I don't want to gain weight. That sucks, but it could be worse! At least I know that if I continue to do what I need to do, I can get down to a healthy weight and lead a long, healthy life. There are some people that just aren't that lucky.
Today's small victory was getting outside to enjoy the beautiful fall weather! I was walking along watching all the leaves when a big gust of wind came through and knocked a bunch of leaves down. They all came floating down to the ground in a slow, mesmerizing shower, and I just felt so calm watching them. It was fantastic! I've always loved watching the snow come down in winter because it's so peaceful and calming (as long as you're not driving in it!), but I really thing falling leaves are even better. Snow usually falls in a pretty direct pattern, but leaves get caught on wind currents and just float wherever.
