Learning that it's not all or nothing
Wednesday, December 16, 2015
I've had an all or nothing mentality; if I eat a cookie, the whole day is ruined so I might as well eat the bag. If I don't have the time (or inclination) to work out for an hour, I might as well not work out at all.
I'm working on changing that point of view. I can eat a cookie and remain within my food points for the day. I kept saying how I had to get up at 5:20 to get to the gym to workout for an hour which I wasn't willing to do. So this week I've been waking up after 6:00 and doing workout videos for 20 - 30 minutes. Maybe I'll start waking up earlier each week to get a little more exercise in. But I'm proud of myself for opting to do something rather than making excuses for not doing anything. Even 10 minutes a day is better than nothing (and I'm committed to doing at least 10 minutes every day.)
One day at a time I'll get where I want to go; a healthier, more fit me!
