why do people say that?
how can 'life" get in the way?
is that just an excuse for not doing what we tell ourselves we need to be doing?
I think so.
I am the princess of excuses.
I'm in pain.
My back is killing me.
My body is achey.
My head hurts.
I can't walk very far..
those were alllll excused I've used in the past.
about a year and a half ago..
then.. I woke up
who says I can't make better choices for myself?
why can't I get on that treadmill and do what I CAN?
why was I letting "life" get in my way of happiness?
I was lazy.
I was truly in pain. every day. still am. Just not to the extent as before.
but I learned to cope
I am "life"
no more letting myself get in my own way.
tomorrow is the hubster's n mine 15 year anniversary.
are we going to go to dinner?
am I going to eat pasta?
am I going to let myself feel guilty about enjoying "life" for one night
I am going to give myself over to the experience and the company
I don't have to eat the whole plate or the entire basket of bread.
I can still be "good"
and I will be.
but I am not going to cheat myself out of a special night just because I am afraid of what the scale might say about it.
I am allowing myself to be "normal" and that's ok.
I don't have to deprive myself from anything.
Everything in moderation is perfect. The perfect way to live.
I have lost almost 60 pounds by living this way.
I am going to love myself and enjoy myself.
I will be just fine :)
