We step on the scales and our weight has gone up.
We promise ourselves we’ll do better, but still order dessert at the restaurant (after eating deep fried something – or many somethings).
We say good-bye to another week we only planned on exercising.
We make excuses for not getting together with our workout partner.
We mope around knowing we’d feel better if we got active, but that isn’t enough to motivate us.
We forget/refuse to drink water.
We stay up late night after night after night.
Or is it just me?
I’m certain it isn’t.
So, here are some suggestions for starting over – suggestions for me that just might help you as well.
I’ve decided to only weigh myself once a month. If I lose a mere two pounds per month, I will achieve my goal by the end of the year.
The good news…I have been eating more salads and making more smoothies. The bad news…I haven’t gotten over the holiday habit of eating dessert – even when I’m full.
I’ve scheduled two sessions with my workout partner for the coming week. Woohoo!
I’ve been extremely introspective recently. Deciding to ask myself each morning the following will help: Whose life can I make better today? Exercising regularly will help as well. It will help me think more clearly, have a more positive attitude, and give me more energy…among many other benefits.
We have a filter on our tap. The water tastes great. I really must start drinking more.
And sleep…Well, I will have to do better, especially when I need to get up and take my hubby to work so I can have the car.
If you, like me, have to start over again in these areas – and others – give yourself permission to do so.
