I was due for a spa day, so after work, I got my eyebrows threaded and my hair cut and colored:
It felt good to do something for myself; although while that was happening I had some guilty feelings about other things I could be spending money on so close to the holidays. Why? I would never suggest that to someone else, so why do I do it to myself? As much as I speak to myself with kindness, other times I’m my own worst enemy. It’s something I’m thinking about.
I said “No” to candy, dessert, another slice of pizza, and sugar-free chocolate pudding. I’m pretty proud of that accomplishment. Plus, I am scheduled to attend spin tomorrow morning, and I’m looking forward to going and getting a great workout.
That’s what the journey is persistence and resolve. They are two core parts that help make weight loss possible, at least for me. I know it sounds bleak but in some important ways, it is very empowering. Understanding that this can be difficult and knowing that I can make it happen feels – really good.
So keep going and working at this because if this is something you want you should have it. I say, yes I’ll keep on the path. What do you say?
