I could blame the cold
I could blame my higher blood glucose levels
I could blame....
Placing blame is not productive. Determining what is going on and then doing something about it is the road I need to take. There is always something that I CAN do.
Being overwhelmed lately and not taking action just makes things more difficult.
Having a sick child doesn't excuse me from making healthy food choices, getting in my exercise and mediation. Nor does it get my taxes done. LOL
So my advice to myself:
"SUCK it up Sweetheart."
Do what I have to do, I will survive. I will get through this. Besides many wonderful changes have been taking place. My non-scale victory... I have been making great choices at the market. The sweets and carbs that have been calling my name are losing their allure. I haven't needed to play the "Would You Rather" game as much.
Would you rather have a carb laden pastry or luscious fresh strawberries?
Would you rather stretch for 23 minutes and feel good or just sit there all stiff?
The "Would You Rather" game has been most helpful in helping to keep me aligned with my goal of a healthy lifestyle.
