For Me

Sunday, October 27, 2013

This weekend, I made some poor choices. Stayed inside instead of going out for a walk. Having one more bite of my dessert and not enough veggies. I have learned, from reading 5+ articles a day, that this is one of my biggest hurdles. I self sabotage myself. I make choices, and I don't see myself living up to my expectations, so I throw in the towel. Then I go into a depressive funk and eat whatever I can get my hands on and sit there like a lump on the couch feeling sorry for me.


I'm tired of being the lump. I'm tired of giving up on myself. If a friend of mine were struggling, I would give them my hand and pull them up and set them going again. I need to do this for myself. I WILL DO THIS FOR MYSELF. I deserve it! I may be my own worst enemy, but I can also be my best friend.

Today I will do my work before the play. I will get my steps in. I will go for that walk/jog. Yesterday happened, and today is a new day. I can make all new choices. I can be the person I want to be. One step at a time.

Watch me go!

    GOOD for you!! you are so worth that time for yourself. i so know how you feel because i have done that in the past! one bad meal turns into a bad day that bad day turns into a bad week then i am worse off then when i first started!

    you take it a day at a time, a meal at a time, whatever works best! and no matter how small the steps are be proud of yourself! look at how far u have come and look forward to how better u will feel. will that laziness or extra dessert get u where u want to be in the long run NO SIR!

    so u take a deep breath and say to yourself NOT THIS TIME!!

    be strong, you are worth it! best wishes and if u ever need to rant u feel free to message me! :) emoticon emoticon
