EXCUSES, EXCUSES, EXCUSES!!!!
So I had a million of reasons why not to work-out today. 1) I didnt work out yesterday! 2) its too hot 3) I'm to tired from work 4) I don't like to workout after my work 5) I dont like to work out in the evenings....the list goes on and on.
But then I thought about my WHY. WHY I want to lose weight? There is a billion of reasons WHY I want to lose weight! So I thought of those instead and YES they out weighed my reasons not to work out!
I grabbed my TURBO JAM and picked the 20-minute dvd. I really wasnt in the mood to do it. After about 5 minutes I was hooked I wanted to finish the rest of the dvd.
I felt bad about not working out yesterday and my body felt it. Today at work there was a birthday party for one of the big boss's! It was her 40th birthday! So of course there was birthday cake. Yes, I had a piece. I took a small piece. I wanted more but I didnt. It was hard to say NO!!! But I thought about it and decided 'that I would rather be thinner!"
Granted there will always be birthday cake or some type of food that will get to you. Its part of life. You can have a small piece and then get on with your life. Food doesnt control you, you control the food! I'm glad that I had packed a healthy lunch and snacks for work today. It helped me stay focus and on track!
So remember when you feel like over-eating; think about your WHY! Keep you mind busy with other things and stay focus. Drink some water and if you truely want IT. Let yourself have a small piece that way you dont crave it and go overboard.
