Ugh. It’s the day after Thanksgiving and I’m still “pigging out”, (although I’m fully aware that my definition of “pigging out” is a bit skewed) and I realize that I am feeling very sluggish and lazy. Why? Because I haven’t exercised in about 3 months. YIKES! what have I been up to?
I am fully aware of all the benefits of exercise when I manage to merge it into my daily routine. But then life happens and I fall out of rhythm, until the goal to be healthy burns strong again.
I will make an effort to at least walk more during my “scattered time”. That’s easy enough to commit to. But I won’t be too hard on myself if I can’t commit to something even that simple for whatever reason. Yes, I need to take responsibility for achieving my goals. But I do accomplish a lot and continue to grow.
I am very cyclical. That’s just who I am. I can either fight it, change it, or accept it. It is much easier to accept that sometimes I will be heavier than at other times and I will be a “good weight” (which is again, super skewed, but it is MY life, MY perception).
Acceptance alleviates stress and gives me the head space needed to tackle something else. I’m tired of fighting myself.
I gotta live authentically.
