Excuses are just easier

Friday, January 20, 2017

Good morning Sparkies!

I had my first competitive weigh in for the office weigh loss contest and I gained about a pound. I could sit here and make up excuses and jokes about where that pound came from, but at the end of the day, I just wasn't trying hard enough. I ate stuff I shouldn't have been eating, I didn't work nearly as hard on my exercise, and forget about getting close to my step goal. But what can I say, making up an excuse for my failures is just easier than admitting I didn't really try.

I know that there are going to be times that I want to "cheat" a little. Maybe skip a work out for a date night, or grab something quick for lunch in order to get a few more minutes of studying in. These are compromises I'm willing to make, but I shouldn't be so easily swayed into giving up. I fully accept that I only have so many hours in the day, but for 90% of those hours I should be making, at least the easiest of, healthy choices.

I know I sound very self deprecating but I'm not trying to be. I'm just trying to give myself a little tough love pep talk. I've heard a billion and three times that in order to really see a difference I need to put in the work. Well, it's time for my to put up or shut up. I have 3 months to lose about 10-15 pounds, and I know I can get passed the stress to put in a good effort at this.
