Commitment---Do it anyway

As a women who has been married a few times.... I know a lot about commitment.  I stayed committed for many years even when lesser women would have given up. Day 2 of the 100 days is about the difference between being Interested versus being committed.  

I have been interested in getting to a healthy size since before weight loss surgery. But as u have. One to recognize it takes COMMITTMENT. COMMITTMENT will get me to the gym when I've had a rough day at work. Interest will keep me on the couch or tell me it's ok to have just one cupcake. 

Commitment makes moves. Interest makes excuses. I will stay committ to getting healthy. It's not just a number on a scale. It's how I feel when I move...when i look at my body, etc. 

Day 3 in the book was a continuation about doing it anyway. I really like disprove chapter as it really did give me an ah-ha moment. I should be as committed to being healthy as I am committed to my job. I go to work on many of days I don't feel like it. I do laundry on days I don't feel like it I could dinner on days I don't feel like it. 

So just do it anyway that's the whole point.  The results will come. 

On a positive note Hubby and I made to the gym today. I've also been on track for three days in a room so I know only six dollars. I'll explain my compensation plan on a later blog post when I'm not so tired.

Day 1(again)

So I'm getting back on track. I decided to go back to the book I was reading before. It's titled 100 days of weight loss. Each day I read a few pages and it gives me an activity. Today's activity for day one is titled "I used to be that way". 

I found that to be interesting because it makes me think about the same things I keep telling myself over and over. Those wrong things I say about myself need to stop. I need a new recording to go in my head one that shows how strong and smart and capable I am. 

Step one:  List all my fears or negative behaviors that I've hurt my weight loss success
1-I sneak food
2-Eat when I'm not hungry
3-I don't exercise when I know I should
4-I don't keep my commitments to fitness
5-Generally lazy
6- not drink enough water
7-eat too many carbs
8-not take my vitamins regularly
9-trying to do this weight-loss, health thing all by myself

Step two is to say each one out loud and then say I used to be that way but now I'm different. 

Step three is reframing them with new endings

1-I used to sneak food but now I openly eat what I should because now I'm different. 
2-I used to eat when I'm not hungry but now I eat only when I'm hungry because now I'm different. 
3-I used to not exercise when I know I should but now I exercise a minimum of four days a week because now I'm different. 
4-I used to not keep my commitments but now I'm a woman of my word because now I'm different
5-I used to be lazy but now I get things done because now I'm different. 
6-I used to not drink enough water but now I get it at least 64 ounces on schedule because now I'm different. 
7-I used to eat too many carbs but now I limit my carbs because now I'm different. 
8-I used to not take my vitamins regularly now I take them on schedule because now I'm different. 
9-I used to try to do all this weight loss and health stuff all by myself but now I'm open and asking for support because now I'm different. 

A nice way to start the new challenge it was very refreshing. I am different and I need to remember that.
