I know that to get where I want to be and make the changes I want to make, I'm going to have to really think about it and talk about it alot, but I'm just hoping that someday a fit lifestyle is the new normal and I don't have to obssess over it. I guess I'm jealous of people that are there and look great and then hearing them talk about how awful they feel about eating one doughnut or how they ran 3 miles that morning and it wasnt enough because they only feel they have really worked out i they run 6+ miles..it just makes me want to scream! i would be thrilled to be able to stop at just one doughnut or anytime I have ever run 3 miles, I am extremely proud of myself!
Anyway, I know the focus has to be on what is my next small positive change and how any choice I make today influences my success tomorrow. And I can't compare myself to others.
I had a skinny mocha at starbucks and turned down the temptation to order a sausage biscuit. I am having green beans and grilled chicken for lunch and now that I have been cleared again for moderate exercise by the doc today ( I had a heart procedure a week ago) I plan to walk a few miles over the weekend. I know from past experience that the hardest part is getting started.
