I Did What I Said I’d Do!

In my last post I said I would exercise hard, and I did. It’s almost laughable (except that it’s really not) that it took me so long to remember how good I feel after a good workout. And I do feel good. My body needed to feel the burn, and just as I imagined, I’m ready to face the new day with a renewed energy.

Stretching after doing way too many bicycle crunches. 🙂

Yesterday was a struggle. I forced myself to do what I didn’t want to do, and I am so glad I did because one good choice often leads to another good choice. I exercised, ate well and now it’s time to do it again.

Dinner tonight was a turkey burger, baked sweet potato fries and steamed zucchini. It was relatively low in sodium, high in protein and fiber and delicious!

I may not like what the scale says Thursday because we get what we give. But I know that if I’m diligent I’ll like what I see a week from now. We can spend our entire lives wallowing in regret, or we can do our best to make today better than yesterday. The choice is clear even when it isn’t easy. Yesterday I made the choice to be better, and I’m going to do it again today.

    "one good choice often leads to another" – I love that! I used to think if I had a good day but then veered off track with oversnacking that the whole day was blown! However, I've since changed my mindset to "every good choice counts". You are making lots of them! Way to go! Good luck on Thurs!

    I applaud you! You make me want to do better. This just reminds me that there's nothing to it, but to do the things you need to do even tho you dont always feel like it.

    AMEN to following through on the plan! And to good choices begetting good choices. And to remembering how good those choices make us feel. (That's me, regurgitating your whole post.)

    Hope Thursday is just as good! (Yes, I'm late to the party.)
