Wow! I have read a few blogs lately that have really hit home with me. This article in particular: http://www.popsugar.com/fitness/Why-OK-Indulge-While-Dieting-39800209?utm_campaign=share&utm_medium=d&utm_source=fitsugar
This is very similar to negative self-talk vs. positive self-talk, but I never thought about it that way. Going forward, I believe this is something that will help me. I have been learning through this journey that this journey is about ME. I know ultimately that my loss will benefit my family as well, but they can't do this for me. I have to do this myself. I know that I will not wake up and the weight be miraculously gone. It is all about choices. I can choose to have a slice of pizza and share a tiramisu with my husband and still lose, but each day is a choice. Each meal I make the decision to follow plan or if I want to have something higher in Smart Points. I know that if I open a bag of chips, there is a chance that I will binge if I don’t portion it out. This is one of those things I know about myself.
I will admit that I have been struggling with the things I don’t think I can do instead of just focusing and doing what I know I can do. Like I have not been using the pedals under my desk as much as I could be or doing other things that I know I can do. I have been trying to walk down the hall more when I run to the bathroom. I know it will come…I’m healing, slowly, but I’m healing. I am walking better and other people have said that as well. I have to figure out how to move forward while I’m healing. Have a blessed and happy hump day!
