I'm still sick with the flu, but today I'm going to exercise again, as I did yesterday. Just a bit...not too much....and I'm going to make some chicken soup.

    I hope you are feeling better. If you have the flu, it is best to stay in bed and drink fluids, and homemade chicken soup, rather than worry about exercise.

    You should just take care of yourself and get some rest. It is more important to get better then worrying about exercising, The chicken soup idea is good. Get better soon and take care.

Monday...again.

Monday, January 28, 2013

Honesty.

Honesty.

Honesty.

I used to think perhaps determination was most important, or tenacity, or some magical food mix/additive, or fibre, etc. But now I believe honesty with self is the single most important key to successful maintenance. It's Monday. Before, Monday would have brought with it feelings of worthlessness, anxiety, sadness b/c I'd be up 4 - 6 pounds over the weekend. But not now. Why not I asked myself? Because of honesty with myself. What do I really want? How much do I really eat? Did I make healthy food choices? Did I control my portions? How much do I really exercise? Yep, honesty with myself...no trickery, no sneakiness, no deprivation...just honesty.

    Honesty is necessary as it forces you to be accountable for your choices. Hope this Monday goes well for you.

Yep, this time is definitely different than ever before...I'm going down again, and I DID NOT overeat at dinner tonight, even though I cooked for company...

Yay!

Constant vigilance

Sunday, January 13, 2013

The only way to stay on this path is constant vigilance. A planned baked potato is one thing, a handful of chocolate chips is something TOTALLY different. It's like me thinking I could have ONE cigarette after I quit smoking. WAS I CRAZY??? Yes, crazy with addiction, which leads to lack of honesty with self, and an abandonment of common sense.

No one will know.
I can have just one.
I've done so well, I've come sooooo far, I deserve it.

These 3 statements along with many others reflect my lack of honesty. I used to consider myself an honest person...I don't take things that don't belong to me, etc. but this year, I am dissecting MY honesty with MYSELF. I've just had an epiphany that this is truly a different ballgame. This is MY year. My year to maintain. My year to be happy. My year to be grateful. My year to consider all my honesty.
