Day 11 - Excuse Me!

Thursday, April 19, 2012

Isn't funny how much we know about ourselves and yet sometimes it takes many thunks to the head before we hopefully finally get it. Yesterday as I went through a bit of a bump in the road, I realized how easily I look for excuses.

I'm tired....(who isn't)
It's too cold....(dress warm)
It's too hot... (do it anyway)
But I went out to eat... (yeah but you do it all the time and you are not starving)
She wasn't nice...
He gave me a look...
I'm mad...
I'm sad...
I'm celebrating...
Something just happened that is totally out of my control...(well DUH..that's life!)

Yesterday I used the excuse..."Well I'm an emotional eater."

Ok yes when things get a little out of whack I seem to think food is going to solve my problems. Not so!! I know it doesn't. It just leads to all the other excuses. I'm mad at myself for having no control (so I eat) I'm sad because I have no control (so I eat) and so on and so on...

So all that being said (and I see I have said NO EXCUSES many times) I am again going to keep that little mantra in front of me. I am going to be a No EXCUSES person in a "not my fault" world. Own up to all my "can't do's" and turn them into "yes I can!"
