Making Improvements

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

Making healthy choices related to food and activity improves many aspects of life. When I am disciplined in my decision making, I feel in control of lots of outside factors as well such as work stress, how well I sleep, and my energy levels.

Why, then, do I let my healthy decisions suffer when factors out of my control intervene?

Why, when others let me down, do I feel justified in letting myself down?

Will eating ever NOT be my knee-jerk reaction to instability in my relationships?

Today, I see my struggles for what they are. I see my lack of progress as a choice I have made. I can only work on me, and today that is what I plan to do.

    All we can do is consistently do more positive things/ good choices than negative/unhealthy choices. If it goes two steps forward, one step back, so be it but in the end it still gets up where we want to go. It is hard to change everything at once but sometimes I find myself in a fantastic groove where everything seems so clear and easy. I often wonder why I can't keep that up but sometimes certain things in life get in the way. Look at the positives closer than the negatives. emoticon

    That is the most sane plan I've heard in a long time!
    Work away Mama...and know we're all right here...working along side of you, Kristy!
    I repeat this to myself so often...

    The only person in the whole wide world I can change is ME!! :-)

    That's a BLESSING!

    love you! you got this!

    Don't be too hard on yourself when you slip. What matters is that you pull yourself back up. It's a learning process to hang on to healthy decisions in times of trouble, so make little steps until you get there.

    You sound motivated, accountable to yourself and strong. Keep up the great attitude and you'll acheive whatever you set your mind to.
