The Cold, Hard Truth
I haven't been the same since I ran the 10k, which was THREE weeks ago. My training has completely stopped, while my eating has definitely not. I think the Girl Scout cookies threw my sweet tooth into overdrive and the 10k was just too much on my body. Since then, I have developed a bad, bad habit of these brownies I found. These brownies are put out by Fiber One, have calories per brownie and 5 grams of fiber. As a once-in-a-while treat this would be fine, since the ingredient list is relatively innocuous for a packaged baked good. Alas, 3 or 4 or 5, yes dear friends I said FIVE, brownies per day is just far from harmless.
I came clean to my husband last night, who was a bit horrified until he actually ate one of the brownies. All of my talk of what I am going to eat is great, but right now I need some hard-line discipline, which is looking like straight-up, cold turkey detox. I am excited about my half marathon! I want to wear my summer wardrobe! Yet, I have chosen to act like a petulant child these last few weeks. No more. I am being honest with myself, which means being honest with all of you. As my hero Jillian Michaels would say, 'We start where we start. There's no shame in that'. So, I am starting again. My times are going to be slow again and my distances will be short. A favorite quote fits perfectly here, 'A year from now you will wish you had started today'.
What are some of your favorite motivational sayings? How do you keep them present in your day?
