All or Nothing

This blog will now be interupted for a short vent/confession. Do not adjust your computer screen.

All or nothing! All or nothing! All or nothing!

I really struggle with an all or nothing/black and white personality.

I eat very healthy or not healthy at all. I exercise twice a day everyday or don't go near the gym for days.

I have really been striving for a healthy balace of eating healthy foods as well as the occassional indulgence and working out regularly and consistantly. I also need to do a better job of bouncing back from any setbacks and not let them slow me down.

My new mottos are going to be:
Failure is not the going down, but the staying down.
Don't sacrifice what you really want for what you want right now.

Right now, my crazy brain is thinking about all the "bad" foods I consumed today and trying to put together a plan of action. My inital thoughts go to "I will workout twice a day and cut out carbs for the next week."

No, no, no!

First of all, I would never follow through and would use it as another reason to get down on myself.
Second of all, it isn't representative of the healthy lifestyle balace that I have been pursuing and know in my heart that is what I really want.

Now, I just need to remember that the next time I am confronted by ice cream and chocolate after a tough week at work!

Hears to a happy, healthy and balanced weekend...I hope!

  1. You can do it! And it's OK to cut yourself some slack - ice cream and chocolate are not the enemies (you know, unless you're eating large portions of them everyday like I am!)
