Small Decisions with BIG Results

As my life has changed, my eating habits changed and other things began to change as well!  I knew I was ready to be fit and healthy again! When I started paying attention to everything in January, I thought of myself as being on a diet.  Being on a diet is depressing to me!  I didn't want to be on a diet.  It was then that I decided this was a lifestyle, not a diet.

It was also around this time that I realized how much pressure I put on myself to not “mess up”!  One little slip up got me upset.  But my biggest lesson learned was that I couldn't fall into an all or nothing trap.  Each day and each decision that day is important.  One little oops doesn't mean the whole day is a waste.  I knew I couldn't let my own emotions control my view of what would be my outcome.

How many times have you started a “diet” or fitness routine only to give up in week one? Too often people decide to make changes, but get discouraged and throw in the towel as soon as it gets hard or make a bad meal decision.  Each meal is an opportunity to make a different decision, a good decision at that.  Change isn't easy.  Don’t give up if you don’t do something perfectly.  Concentrate at first, on small victories.   If you do this, you will enable yourself to keep moving forward each day!

Love & Hugs,
