No more guilt trips

Sunday, September 16, 2012

This morning, I told myself no more guilt trips. That was my mantra on the way to the gym.

I'd been eating well, but yesterday was crap. It was burritos and pizza all day, and only light exercise.

I've been feeling very guilty about missing the gym the last few weeks. I've only been making it about twice a week instead of the 3-4 times I normally get. This morning, I wasn't tired, but I wasn't really feeling the gym.

I went anyway, though. I told myself I was going to feel guilty if I missed it, and that feeling wasn't worth it. I had no legit excuse.

I also forgave myself for yesterday. Today's a new day. I can't change yesterday. Yesterday was a crap day, for diet, sleep (only had 3 hours the night before), and exercise. But today's a new day. I got a full night's rest, a good workout, and a good breakfast. I'm about to scrounge up something (healthy!) for lunch, and I already have a healthy dinner planned out.

So, no more guilt trips. I can control my actions, one day at a time, and make choices that won't lead to guilt later on. I've made the choice to make good choices today.

    It's always hard for me to bring myself up to excercise but once I'm there I feel great!

    Way to go! Guilt doesn't get us anywhere! Sometimes when we take a break things change for us! We get a clear mind, a better understanding of where we are at and get back on the band wagon! Good luck!
