I Am Worth It

Sometimes it's easy, sometimes not so much.  Yesterday was pre-planned Christmas festivities which involved eating my whole days worth of calories at lunch (oops).  The previous day, completely self-inflicted.  I almost made bad choices tonight, but I realized that I needed to stop.  I am worth it.

I haven't made it much further into Choose More, Live More for Life.  I am trying to remember that I am worth it though and I think I am going to start another promise (or two).  Since I last wrote, I have had time to think about the promises the book recommends and I am going to change one of them (one for now, there could be more changes later).

Food Promises -- I will:
1) Eat at least one serving of veggies every day
2) Drink water before every meal
3) Eat protein at every meal Eat from a salad plate instead of a dinner plate.

Body Promises -- I will:
1) Exercise for five minutes a day
2) ?
3) ?

Mind Promises -- I will:
1) Look myself in the mirror every day and say, "I'm worth it"
2) Forgive myself for one failure a day
3) Set small weekly goals instead of big, long term goals

My next promises  from this list will be to exercise for five minutes a day, eat from a salad plate, and I should add that I need to forgive myself for one failure a day, especially during this festive season.  I do promise to kick my own ass into gear as soon as the holidays are over. . .although I do have a trip to Vegas planned in January.
