Day 71 - It's Too Hard

Sunday, October 11, 2015

Instead of caving in on your diet because it feels too hard, buck up and tell yourself, "Of course it's hard. But I've done a lot of difficult things in my life, and this isn't any different. I know that I can do hard things."

Some of the hard things I have done:
Was a Captain in the Marine Corps (which required passing the physical fitness test - and I don't like running)
Trained my first dog to be in our breed clubs Hall of Fame
Designed small needlepoint projects (a later in life new hobby)
Lost weight previously
Had both knees replaced (April and May 2015)
Served on the board of a National hobby oriented organization for 4 years.
Consistently exercising (up to the day before my first knee surgery) and then picking it up after surgery.
