I Did It...And Didn't Feel Deprived!
Thursday, May 31, 2012
One reason I have such a hard time sticking to a good health plan is because I have felt deprived in other areas of my life, I don't want to be deprived of the food I want to eat or the time I want to spend doing other things instead of exercising. I have just recently came to this realization and am trying to work my way through it. But yesterday I ate 1,392 calories and didn't feel deprived! I normally always go over 1,500. I usually do well most of the day and then by the end I stop caring. But yesterday I stayed in my range and didn't feel deprived...no, I felt proud! I can do this. And satisfaction over a good day feels so much better than guilt and the empty promise of doing better tomorrow.
