Day 10 #last90days
When I lost my 100 pounds on #weightwatchers
27 years ago, I worked out with my mother-in-law. We had each other for #accountability
I don't have her this time. Thankfully I have the #last90dayschallenge
community for motivation, accountability and tips.
When you are on a #weightlossjourney
or working on #makenewhabitsbreakbadhabits
often willpower is not enough. You start out strong and by day 10 those bad food choices or bad habits slowly creep back in. 🏃I was asked yesterday by a friend, "did you fall off the wagon yet?" I thought, what a strange question! But in all fairness, how many of us have "cheated" by now? 🏃"Ummmm....no! I am all in!" and she says back to me, "you are stronger than I am". And my first thought wasn't of me, but how sad it is that she thinks less of herself. 🏃My friend went on to share that staying on track takes too much work. She is tired by the end of her day and can't fathom taking on one more thing. 🏃My first question was "Aren't you important enough to make time in your day for yourself?" As moms, wives, employees and all the other hats we wear these days, we give OUR ALL to everyone else and have nothing left for ourselves! 🏃She said she is tired of starting "plans" and not sticking to them. She knows herself and by the second week she would be done. 🏃I get that! We have all been there. But ME - I'm done with that negative self-talk! Girls, guys, if you are breathing, WE are #madeformore
🏃We have to start keeping PROMISES to ourselves like we keep promises for others! We need to keep showing up everyday like we do for our work, children, spouses. 🏃Writing my plan for the day keeps me on track. Reading posts ya' all share motivates me and lets me know I'm not alone! Together we can achieve our goals and keep our promises to ourselves! 🙋♀️ Are you doing this with me? With this motivating and supportive community?
