No More Excuses
Tuesday, March 27, 2012
Sometimes we need some tough love.... I think I'm there. I'm at the point where I'm ready to kick my own butt for my negligence. Now, I could rationalize that ever since February, I've been CRAZY busy exiting a job, moving across the state, starting a new job, trying to unpack, getting used to a whole new life, city, community etc and so forth. That is all true. However, the one thing that I can't quite answer to is why that meant it has been okay to make less-than-healthy choices.
I must hold myself accountable for that.
Crap, that sucks. That makes me feel bad. And want cookies. And isn't that the vicious cycle?! Lord, help me be stronger! Help me make better choices! NO MORE EXCUSES.
So, we're broke from moving and can't afford the Y membership yet. That's okay - but it's not a valid excuse to be less active! We now live in one of the most temperate and beautiful places in the US. Oh, and there is a walking trail 2min away. And walking is free. NO EXCUSES.
So, we are busier than before and have a million things to do. That's totally fine - but it's not a valid excuse to polish off an entire bag of chips and call that "lunch"! We CAN take 10min to make a salad, or prepare our lunch for work the next day, or see just what that crockpot can do! (Hello Leftovers!) NO EXCUSES.
I am so blessed that my fiance/best friend supports my efforts and is reaching for his goals right along side me. I am blessed for everyone else out there Sparking your little hearts out. I want to be an inspiration for all of us and for those who don't yet know what they are capable of! So maybe it doesn't mean I'll be wearing a size 4 wedding gown - there is NOTHING wrong with that. But it's not an excuse to just give up! NO EXCUSES, my friends. We can do this! : )
