Forming New Habits
Monday, April 09, 2012
I must say that I am very proud of myself. I managed Easter very nicely...I had normal servings of the foods I like. I did have seconds later of mac and cheese and rolls, but I did not stuff myself and overeat. I exercised on a Sunday and a holiday!! We tend to get ourselves into these huge workouts and then I start to dread them. I've decided that even if I squeeze in ten minute section of sparkpeople cardioblast that's better than doing nothing. And while it's great to focus on a big workout, it's not good when you hate it and dread it. Moderation in all areas of my life. We took the kids and my mom to the movies today...no popcorn and we went to a buffet afterwards (the kids fav). We hit the salad bar and fresh fruit. I didn't miss all the other stuff. I figure if I'm going to treat myself to a favorite meal it's going to be something I love, not crap from a gross buffet. I feel so good! I just need to keep repeating this: wake up, get moving, eat healthy, exercise, take care of myself, and repeat until it becomes a habit. I always give up and give into food and I'm not going to this time. I want to be happy and healthy. I deserve to be!! We all do! We can do this!!
