Reasons

So. I would love to blame my weekend food on something like a party for some kind of game or something, but all I have is my son makes one wicked meal. It was his turn to cook tonight and we had twice baked potatoes and cream cheese berry pie. And it was soooo good.

I did have a huge salad to go along with it, so hopefully that will offset the cream/cream cheese I ate tonight. And I didn't finish all of my pie. Does that count for something?

I didn't weigh this morning because I was in a hurry, and I have a feeling that if I weigh in the morning my numbers will be up, so in the interest of my peace of mind, I am not going to get on the scale until next week.

Right now my problem seems to be that I am tired.
Tired of planning menues.
Tired of preparing lunches.
Tired of cooking supper.
Tired of homework.
Tired of class.
Tired of working all day long everyday.
Tired of cleaning.
Tired of no time for relaxing.

You get the picture. I think this is what causes me to get off track. I get tired, discouraged, in a hurry and forget why I am trying so hard to change.

When I had my own business, I had a reasons why list and encouraged my team members to do the same. Our reasons why list were reasons why we were in business for ourselves, this is my reasons for wanting to have a life style change:

1) To stop the pain
2) To loose weight
3) To wake up and feel well
4) To have enough energy to make it through the day
5) To be able to play with my grandbabies
6) Vanity- I really, really want to look good

Looking at that small list helps. I think I will print it out and post it above my desk so when I get feeling tired, I can review my reasons why.

Unfortunately, the above "free ebook" makes you take a "free survey" in order to download it, and I tried to take one of the surveys, but after 2 tries and twice being blocked by my K9 software, which marked the surveys as malware and suspicious content, I decided it wasn't worth it. Oh, well.

Anyway, Sandra, I agree that a little reminder can sometimes go a long way. And I know how you feel about being tired of working so hard. Good Luck!

I know that feeling. Sometimes, we just get tired. You need a "pick me up." Are you doing ANYTHING for yourself? It sounds like everything is for everyone else. If you cup is empty...

Go on a girls night out with friends. Buy a new outfit or jewelry. Do something to make yourself feel important. Life isn't meant to be a drag, but you have to do it yourself. No one can make you happy. Just you. And you deserve to be happy.
