I started the year at 225.3 and after losing a few pounds, I'm back to 226. This is partly due to me going out of town for the weekend. I tried to do things like skip breakfast and I even exercised one day. None the less my scale went up when I got home. With this in mind, I got up today and exercised early.
MY NOT SO LUCKY GREEN SUIT
I had to wear a suit to a speaking gig and I hadn't worn a suit in a while. To make a long story short none of my suits fit. I'm at least 20 lbs heavier than I was when I last wore a suit.
The fun part of this is there is only one person blame. I was not a fan of myself at that moment. I took that time and turned off my phone, TV, computer and just took some time to embrace how bad this felt. I DO NOT WANT TO FEEL THIS WAY. It hurt.
WHY CAN'T WE GET UP TO EXERCISE
To get to Boston I had to get up at 5:30 AM which is EARLY for me (very early). Yet, when the alarm went off I got up in a slight panic, took a shower, finished packing, and got out the door on time.
WHY? Because I had to. I had one shot to make my flight. If I missed my flight, I didn't have the money for another ticket or fee to get another ticket.
WE NEED TO KEEP THE SENSE OF URGENCY
We need to think of the opportunities we have to do the right thing as a plane. We have ONE SHOT to get it right and embrace that urgency and do the right thing.
NOTHING feels as good as watching the scale go down on a consistent basis. No taste gives you that feeling.
You know the lies we tell ourselves.
Quit listening to the lies.
You can do hard things (you do every day).
Consider me your uber driver here to take you to the airport to catch the plan to onederland.
