This Isn't Working...

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

I know what I have to do. I really do. But I don't / won't do it. The last two days, Monday & Tuesday, have been killer at work - and the entire week is going to be like that. I know that getting up, moving, and doing a bit of cardio would make me feel 100% better, but I don't do it.


I know the benefits I get when I exercise and I love it; so why don't I push myself to do it on days I really need to? I've have stomach issues the entire past week and I know why - so why do I keep eating the same garbage???

Why is it so hard to put down the bag of chips, block of cheese, carton of ice cream and reach for fruit or veggies or even water instead????

The only streak I've managed not to break since I've started is the No Soda. And I'm so happy for that. But I know that if I even took one sip, I'd be right back up to 3-a-day within a week.

I'm forcing myself to drink at least two bottles of water a day; most days I do.

I'm still trying (??) to break the cheese binging and chips habit. I swear, it's addictive. I know it's addictive.

So, I'm down, but not too much. My goals for tomorrow: No soda, 2 bottles of water, no cheese, no chips, and at least 30 minutes of cardio.

    could I help in any way??? I so know what it feels to know what's the right thing to do/eat but doing/eating the exact opposite. I'm right there next to you, fighting the same battle. Presently I might seem I'm on the winning side, yet I so know that I can stumble and fall any time.... so I'd really like to help you somehow... keeping you accountable??? Or something???? Just drop me a not if I can help in any way!!!

    All the best and keep on kicking and fighting!!!!!!! We CAN do it!!!

    It's hard, isn't it? You recognize the problems, you know what you need to do to change things. Now you have to believe that you can change things.

    Have faith in yourself, don't beat yourself up. Any learning process means that you have to practice, practice, practice and what you are trying to do is learn better habits. That means you'll make mistakes but with practice it will eventually become 2nd nature.
