Folks, I almost didn't make it today.
All the excuses lined up to play.
"Oh. You woke-up late."
"I am so hungry! Breakfast first?"
"Missing one day wont be a big deal."
"Nobody will know I missed today."
And. my all time favorite.
"You have been working hard. You deserve a day off!"
It was mind over matter and I did my work-out.
Why do I sabotage myself? Set myself up to fail? The inner dialogue is one I would never allow in a friend or family member. Why do I allow it in myself?
It's a mystery. One that I need to work through somehow. One that I need to conquer. Losing this weight is so much more then looking good in a swimsuit. It's proving to MYSELF that I can begin and follow through with something for ME. Not for my wonderful hubby (although he is a huge motivator), not for my daughter (although she is a huge factor), not for somebody at church (that keeps me busy), but FOR ME.
