We all have things going on in our lives that give us the excuse to not get it together, and I have a bagful, but they are just excuses. I know that by staying healthy and fit I'm way better equipped to handle the crap that gets thrown at me on a day-to-day basis.
Despite several aborted attempts, I have not maintained any real focus this summer when it comes to exercise and healthy eating. I went to Weight Watchers and was feeling really gung-ho about losing the 10 lbs I wanted to lose, but when I got to the magic number, my focus dropped and I started slagging off on exercise and eating crap at meal times. I had a pretty good wakeup call this morning when (TMI alert) I noticed that my bra is starting to spill over with the abundance of chest that I'm sporting. I am NOT going to buy new bras - they are too expensive and I'd rather save my money for something good.
It's like I'm trying to roll a giant boulder (not my chest), and I'm great as long as I keep moving and don't let my focus shift. If I let my focus lag just a bit, that boulder is impossible to move. That's where I am right now; headed uphill, bracing the boulder so it doesn't roll backwards and squash the crap out of me. I'm just looking for a little reserve of strength to get it rolling in the right direction.
So today I'm going to journal my food, I'm going to get (at least) 30 minutes of exercise, and I'm going to eat 6 servings of veg/fruit.
