Talking myself back into it....

Tuesday, April 14, 2009

Well, I'm seriously annoyed with myself! And for me that's dangerous waters because being angry with myself is usually just the first step in the downward spiral that I've experienced WAY too often before! I get excited about my new lifestyle and then I mess up and then I get mad and then I eat which makes me even more mad and its just a continuous vicious cycle until the next time I decide I'm going to get healthy (I've been on this weight loss/gain road more times than I can even begin to count!). So, I'm here to tell myself it is OKAY to have a bad couple of days and I can STILL do this!!!! The most important thing is this is a new day and I have control over this moment, right? I am trying to put aside all the negative thoughts I've had the last few days and just tap into how I really, really want to live my life (healthy!). I'm human...I make mistakes... BUT I can pick myself back up and move on too. I know I have the strength, I just need to keep believing in myself and drawing on all the amazing support here on Spark!

    Good for you. You realized how you are feeling and having some great self talk!
    You are 100% right about all of it. Today IS a new day and you get to make today a better day because you do want to be healthy and fit and not beat yourself up anymore!

    You are EXACTLY right! Every one slips up, but that doesn't mean you have to feel bad about yourself. You can do it!

    the past few days are just that, "in the past". Only look forward and start today with your clean eating, excercise and a healthy out look on life. you CAN do it!
