Yesterday I was reading MissHaneefa's blog and she had a quote:
"Never trade in what you want the most, for what you want at the moment"
This had a profound effect on me. Today while I at this buffet I thought about eating something and then this quote popped in my head. I think it has become my new motto. I started thinking in terms today as... 'If I eat this... I won't meet my goals'. The thing I want most is to be healthy. I want to not have to worry about becoming sick or having any kind of complications related to my weight. I really wouldn't trade my health for something like a piece of cheesecake that I will only enjoy the taste... and then feel like a failure. (Quick Note: I don't like the idea of saying I will never eat this... or eliminating any food groups entirely, but I know that if I tell myself.... 'it's okay to eat a piece of cheesecake because my diet allows it' then I know that I have just opened the flood gates if you will. I'm working on willpower.)
Well tomorrow I am getting up and going to the gym with my friend Amanda. We joined a gym together years ago and use to go workout. I found out this week that she belongs to the same gym I do. I'm working on getting a few people that I can rely on to be my gym buddies so they can kick my butt if I decide to become flaky.
More tomorrow, Love Always.... Amberly
