Being There

Monday, August 25, 2008

After a weekend of bad eating and very little exercise, I'm feeling kind of BLAH. I'm going to my fitness class tonight, so hopefully that will help lift my mood and get me back on track.

Sometimes I feel like my progress has slowed to a snail's pace. That is extremely frustrating to me, since I am so close to my goal weight. But I am human and I have days and even weekends where I mess up. Each time this happens I am disappointed in myself because I think that puts me even further away from my goal.

I need to change my mindset. Instead of thinking about "getting there" I need to think about "being there". In some ways, I am already where I need to be. I have healthy habits in place, I just need to continue them. If I can just continue "being there" then the "getting there" part will happen by itself.

    You definately have the right mindset and attitude, you just need to remind yourself of it when you get in these funks.

    I like "being there" vs. "getting there". That is so much more positive and correct. It's great that you recognize that you already have all the healthy habits in place. and you are right, you are human, and accidents and incidents will happen. Keep your chin up, you are doing a great job. Don't let one weekend or even a few weekends get you down.
