Tuesday February 12, 2019.......being totally committed....100 days!

Tuesday, February 12, 2019

Good morning! It's early...too early! LOL! Today and tomorrow are early work days for me. Adding an extra 30 minutes to my drive time today for the roads. The older I get the more I don't like driving in snow.

I was going to continue on with our Super Foods but there are quite a few "R" super foods and I don't have time this morning to type them all up. I probably will pick back up on Thursday with them.

So how was your Monday and being fully, completely, 110% committed? How did it go for you? I struggled yesterday but I made it through.

It always seems like when I have a day (or 4 days in this instance) where I start to wade back over to the not so healthy life style, that it is a big struggle to stay on my side of this game....

All day long I had to keep thinking H-E-A-L-T-H-Y!

Why is it just so easy to live on the unhealthy side of life? Is it because I have lived there for so long? 19-20 years now.

And it isn't like I have a lot of that unhealthy food in the house right now either. I was standing there opening the cupboard doors and fridge and staring in several different times yesterday looking for unhealthy foods. Do you ever do that??

I had to stop myself several times and ask:
Are you really hungry Kammy? (no)

Are you bored? (a few times I was)

Why do you want to eat? (just because, no real reason other than supper time when I was truly hungry and I was cooking supper. How many of you have a meal with nibbling here and there while you are cooking?)


Right now at this moment in time when you are starring into the fridge are you being totally committed to your healthy lifestyle? (no)

Right now as you stare into the cupboard with all the cereal boxes are you setting yourself up for success? (no)

Over and over again the self conversation went.

Self talk is a powerful tool!
It can make you or break you!

The final straw last night was after supper and I was reclined in the recliner and I had wanted to walk on the treadmill last night and get in 10,000 steps for the day.

Once I am in the recliner it is like pulling teeth to get motivated again. I argued with myself for 30 minutes (some of which was out loud and my hubby finally said "Honey you deserve a night to just relax")...Yeah I have had Sat and Sun. of relaxing nights when I could have walked. I finally got my butt up and walked while I was watching The Bachelor.


This morning I am glad that I did it but last night I was not.

Being committed is doing it even when you do not want too.

And it is waking back up the next morning and doing it all over again.

Commitment shows the real you.

Commitment is a do or don't kind of thing, there is no in between......

In order to achieve your goals, you have to be committed day in and day out, day after day.

Yesterday marked 100 days until my Mom/Son trip with Chase. Each kid gets to pick a trip with just Mom sometime during their high school years. Because he was so busy with football in the summer he decided to do it just after graduation. (that means my kids graduate in less than 100 days! Yikes!)

So more than ever I am committing myself to a healthy lifestyle. I have 2 goals I will achieve before I leave on vacation:

1. 30 plus pounds lighter than I am currently
2. Be in better shape than I am now so I can keep up with Chase and me being out of shape doesn't hold him back or myself back from having a time of our lives together.

Are you TOTALLY COMMITTED to your dreams and goals?

    I lean on water a lot - cold in the summer, hot in the winter. Hungry? Drink something first.

    Kammy this is such a true blog, standing in front of refrigerator and just looking. I keep reminding myself I really don't want to be doing this. I have once again committed to having just healthy foods in the fridge and with doing that, it makes it easier to not to snack. I mean if all I'm looking at is carrot sticks and celery, my chances of not eating nothing is greater than when I have tons of stuff in the fridge.

    Shoveled heavy and I mean heavy ice, snow and water combined today. I remember when I just could keep going and going. Not this time, I actually had to stop a few times and catch my breath. So Kammy I do understand wanting to go back to not being healthy. In the long run, I know I'll be glad I did stick to it.

    SO true - I often find that I'm just craving something, rather than actually hungry.
