I am ashamed to say I fell off the wagon. I was doing so great right up to Thanksgiving and even a few days afterwards.
Then I started telling myself that "You are doing great and its ok just this one time."
The one time turned into that one week, and then into well I've done this bad whats the point.
I was afraid I was going to do this and I am not happy with myself. I went back to not eating breakfast and lunch and the exercise just dropped off. I got lazy.
I was then too ashamed to come back to spark people because of what happened. I didnt feel i deserved the community support for my bad choices. Which of course is absolutely ridiculous because that is probably when I needed it more than ever.
I am taking full accountability for my choices and it is my hope that I can start back up and fix what I have done. I have not stepped on a scale since November and I am now afraid to see what damage I did. I just know that if I am ever going to get fully healthy again I need to be more determined than ever!!
NO MORE EXCUSES!!!
I received an email at work from my boss that I have printed up and I will take home and read every morning. I have typed it below.
Leave Excuses Behind
Excuses are the building blocks of failure. Actions are the building blocks of success.
At best, the energy you put into crafting a good excuse will merely keep you stuck where you are. Yet when you put the same amount of energy into taking positive action, you begin to move ahead.
When you notice yourself looking for an excuse, stop and ask this question. What action could be taken right now that would make the excuse unnecessary?
Excuses give you permission to give up. But that's not something you really want to do.
Dig deeper, past the superficial impuls to make an excuse.
Dig deeper, and connect with the things that matter most to you.
Make a new commitment to what really matters. Leave the excusess behind as you act to fulfill your best possibilities.
So as I said before.......
NO MORE EXCISES
