Why is it so easy to eat right, workout and be motivated during the week and then lose all progress during the weekend? I’ve realized that to be truly successful, I need to change from this being a diet, to being a lifestyle change. I need to tell my friends “no” when they ask to go to the bar. I need to limit my beer intake when I play golf. I need to ask for a side a fruit instead of french fries at the restaurant. It comes down to desire and will power.
I reflected on my weekend and I was a little angry with myself. Why did I let temptation get the best of me? I have no answer to this. Something good has come from me being angry at myself. I now know that I want it. I want it bad. If I wasn’t angry at myself for a bad weekend, I wouldn’t feel like it was important to me. Since my feelings are so strong about a bad weekend, I confirmed to myself that losing weight and being healthy is important to me. Its worth putting up a fight.
Those words are so easy to write down; so hard to apply. But I want this. I must do this. I will do this.
Be well. Feel great.
