So my food has been pretty sloppy lately. A 10 day span without a personal trainer, a feasting holiday and a crazy schedule, combined with some high level stress and I've got a perfect storm for excuse-making.
In reality, I have two choices: Make good choices, or make excuses. And the whole motto of my world is supposed to be about making the next right choice, not the next right friggen excuse, right? RIGHT!
I have a long distance workout buddy now who is even more motivated than I am and a heck of a lot more self-disciplined than I am. As a fitness bud, to increase my likelihood of success and to help get me back in the right mindset, I have agreed to take pics of everything I eat today and picture message it over to my friend for accountabililty.
It's AMAZING how just ONE next RIGHT choice leads to an entirely different perspective. By simply sending off a pic of my apple this morning, I got a little excited. Sending over the pic of the oatmeal was downright empowering.
That one decision (to send food pics) set an entire series of next right choices into motion today. And that one single act COMPLETELY altered the trajectory from a probable path of sloppy eating and then self flaggelation to clean eating and pride instead.
Make one good choice today. It doesn't matter what it is. Do it because you want to feel better. Do it because you want to look better. Do it because you want to be better. Do it because you're worth it. Do it because you want to prove you can. Do it because the alternative is having a bad day when all it might take to turn your entire day around is JUST. ONE. CHOICE.
Just do it!
