Monday a new day a new beginning, stepping away from the cliff. November 26, 2012
Well it is Monday, after a weekend of too much time in the car, too little exercise, too little water, and eating too many sweets we start anew. After a morning of thinking of excuses to not eat right or exercise I did get a walk in with the dogs today over lunch. YEH ME!!What a struggle. I mean I was tossing around ideas like, ” I can wait till next week and start new again once the kids have moved and there is n more junk food in the house.” Along with “why try during this holiday time I am just setting myself up to fail.” Then I seen the “New Day” statement on Facebook, it gave me inspiration.
But the real lifesaver for me today was a blog written titled “300 Pounds Down” called ” The Cliff”. How dieting can be as if you are standing at the edge of a cliff and you could fall off at any time or step back and save yourself. After my weekend of eating the wrong foods, not exercising, and not drinking enough water… I was at the cliffs edge verbally giving myself reasons to fall…. she saved me today. I thank God for her words of inspiration.
Unsucessful at Thanksgiving. November 23, 2012
Well we arrived at the in-laws for Thanksgiving and everyone was waiting for us to get there. We had left at 4:30am and arrived at 12:30pm. Hubby only stopped for fuel we had no time to waste. Tried to get in a walk before dinner but there was not enough time and after dinner everyone wanted to play cards. Needless to say, I did not get my walk in. I could have and should have said that I had to walk first but I did not. Was it because deep down I did not want to walk or because I did not want to disappoint them by making them wait for me? So rather than disappoint them I disappointed myself again. 😦
Here at my in laws they have a full length mirror on the back of the bathroom door. I hate when I look in the mirror and see a side view of myself while on the toilet. Yuk. Do you know I have only three mirrors in my home and they are not full length and I am sure subconsciously I have done that for a reason. Maybe I should have a full length mirror so I have to really “SEE “myself. How many times do we look at ourselves but not really “SEE” ourselves?
