Know what I’m bad at?
Making good goals that I can stick to.
I always set out with the best of intentions. I tell myself “This time I’ll start eating well and KEEP eating well” or “This time, I’ll definitely stick to the awesome work out plan I made for myself.”
Somehow, every time I convince myself it’s true too!
How are we able to do that? Lie to ourselves?
I’m usually all gung-ho for about a week or two…
Then, slowly, I skip a workout here, or indulge in a bag of chips there (especially sea salt and cracked pepper, mmm!).
Then one day becomes two, two becomes three, and before you know it, I’m right back where I started.
I can’t blame anyone but myself. It’s not like anyone else is trying to sabotage me.
The only thing I’ve consistently kept up with is yoga every Wednesday night. And you know what? I feel AWESOME afterwards. You would think that on the other days when I should be working out I’d remember how great I feel on Wednesdays after class and that would give me some motivation. But it doesn’t.
So, in short, I’ve got to develop some longer-lasting willpower.
How to do it? No idea. Maybe I’ll try tomorrow.
