Some days are just harder!
So today I got dressed to go to the gym, I was tired but I was determined to do some exercise. So I went, I really enjoyed it but due to having not done any exercise over Christmas I found it hard going. Also the run I had done yesterday had made my legs feel like lead. So I only managed 30 mins before I had to throw the towel in. When I got home I had a a big salad and then spent a good few minutes kicking myself that I had only managed 30 mins, then I had a shower and put some clothes on, everything felt tight and I again kicked myself that I was fat etc.
Now at this point I thought what's the point, closely followed by I'm fed up I may just eat what I want and give up, then I thought I'm never going to be the size I want to be. I quickly realised that by saying these things even in my head I was positively reinforcing them. So I stopped, I took a deep breath and told myself that if I gave up now that I would have been right, I wouldn't lose any weight and I wouldn't be any fitter!
The fact is the weight didn't go on over night so why was I expecting it to come off over night! The answer is, it won't. It will be tough at times but if I listen to the negative voices and even worse still, act on them then I won't achieve any of my goals!
So the moral is don't give up, don't quit and when the negative voices get loud challenge them, replace them and realise you are worth the effort! I am worth the effort!
