A kernel of success in the middle of failure..

Saturday, April 18, 2009

You know, failure is not really a word in my vocabulary. Oh, I can get down on myself and think bad things about myself, but ultimately, I have learned in my almost 50 years on this earth that beating myself up is counterproductive to success, so when I find myself doing it, I usually put a stop to it pretty quickly. So, when I go through a span like I have in the last week or so, where for reasons I can't explain I can't reign in the eating, I have to work hard to find a reason to not beat the he!! out of myself.

I have and thought I would share it with you..and here it is:

this week, despite eating awfully, I still have exercised every single day.. This is good because I haven't thrown the baby out with the bathwater.. It is good because I have managed to keep that part of my program strong. And whatever the reasons that I've been way over indulging in food, I have kept my psyche in touch with this journey..and at some point, the rest of it will come back around and fall into place. I have faith in myself and my ability to turn it around. And I will.

    That's great! We need to maintain at least one of the key elements to not lose all control! I am currently injured, and not exercising, but my dietary choices have been really great. It's still working out for me. Hope it will for you too! It's so hard to juggle all the balls! Hang in there- the better dietary habits will come around...

    Hey, we're bound to stray a bit here & there...we are human, after all. The key is to find our balance...& how are we going to do that if we wander a bit here & there? ;-)

    Congrats on getting control of a very important part of it all. emoticon

    I have no doubt you WILL! The beauty of a lifestyle is that in your diet there is wiggle room, but who wants jiggle room when they exercise! LOLOL

    T- you know that exercise is my biggest bugaboo! I am so impressed that you have kept that up. I'm eating all sorts of random food that I usually don't even want. I'm trying to not even think of it right now. Keep up the good attitude, the good exercise, and the food will fall back into line.
