Ever have those days where it starts off GREAT and gradually as the day goes by, the greatness starts to fade?
Yeah… today’s one of those days. I’m still truckin’..I’m unsure if it’s the rainy, cold day… But this sucks!! Ha! Ha!
We all have to get through these kind of days. I just finished dinner, but I’m still hungry. I downed a glass of water and I’m still hungry. I’m not in a vegetable kind of mood today. I stress how important it is to eat your vegetables… but I’ve only had one serving today. I believe today is just an off day. I’m still proud of myself that I got up this morning and went to the gym. I’ve eaten healthy today – however, I do feel the portions were a bit larger than they should be. But that usually happens when I workout first thing in the morning. I prefer to actually workout in the evenings. On the weekends, I tend to go to the gym first thing in the morning, or else sometimes the workout never happens.
My goal this coming week is to get to the gym every night.
I’m not pressuring myself to spend hours at the gym, but at least work on getting in 30 minutes of physical activity each night. Physical activity is very important to get in daily. It doesn’t have to be much, but aim for at least 30 minutes a day.
I just LOVE when a friend texts me to tell me she’s getting ice cream.. damn you woman!! Now all I’m thinking about are those delicious ginger molasses cookies again. Haha
What I’m trying to get across by this blog entry is that everyone has these kind of days. Sure, since my Nan passed away these kinda days keep happening unfortunately. Emotions are something hard to control – however, what we can control is how we cope with these emotions.
I’m far from perfect – hense why the last three months my weight loss has been at a stand still.. BUT.. I chose not to give up! I still went to the gym, drank my water, took my vitamins and tried to not emotionally eat. Life is one big challenge, but we’re all going to die one day. We need to ensure we live the best life.
Now with just saying that, a thought crossed my mind.
“If we are going to die one day … why WORRY so much if we gain a pound or two?”
I don’t have the answer for that. I believe everyone has their own answer to that question. I find myself asking that question to myself many days. I ask myself “Why are you so hard on yourself when really, your opinion of yourself is the only one that matters..”
We live in a society today where appearance is a main factor on how you’re treated.
So all I can say is this, just be the best YOU you can be each day. This way if you die tomorrow, you know you gave it your best shot.
