what keeps you from cheating?

Monday, April 21, 2008

emoticon I wonder what keeps us from cheating? I think that it is the fact that people know that the only one they are cheating is themselves. I mean you could enter all the right stuff and say you lose weight, Because who would know. The most important person in the world. YOU!!! I thought about it today. I was doing my nutrition tracker and went to the fitness tracker and I was going to enter my cardio. I thought no, if for some reason I don't get it done then I'd be lying. Then I thought , well I could put it in and do it tomorrow. No I thought I might puy it off then also. In the end I left it blank until I finally got on the bike and just rode. I always have such procrastination when it comes to exercise. I know it is good for me, but I still fight it. I think if I had put it in and not done it I would feel so guilty that I would end up being angry with myself. In the end the only person I would have hurt was myself, in lost exercise, but most importantly in respect for myself. In case your wondering, I did actuslly ride for 25minutes tonight. I feel so much better. Thanks for listening. emoticon

    You said it perfectly. You would only be cheating yourself. You should be very proud of yourself for being so honest. I know I am guilty of putting in cardio minutes in the past and then somehow managing not to get them done! kudos for making yourself get it done!

    Hi, like you I wait till I've completed something before entering it. It seems like to much effort to delete it if I don't do it. Only thing I enter ahead of time is my vitamins which I know I'll take since it's in with my daily meds. Deb
