True Confession Tuesday

True Confessions It has been a really long time since I have made any confessions. I have been on a little hiatus, which I have returned from with a venengence. I have taken my health and my life into my own hands. Lately I have put my needs and wants on the back burner. I had so much going on in my life that eating right and working out just weren't happening. I was so tired when I got home that I didn't een make an effort. But now I am trying to take stock of my needs and wants and putting those things higher up on the priority list. So here are the things I have discovered about myself and how I am trying to overcome them. Confessions: 1) I am a plate cleaner. For as long as I can remember I have eaten everything on my plate whether I was still hungry or not. Plan for overcoming: Putting less on my plate in the first place. As I work on stopping eating when I am not hungry I am not putting as much on my plate, so the temptation to overeat is lessened. I know that I need to read my bodies signals on when to stop, but until I get a good handle on that, having to think before I take another serving will help. 2) I am really tired after work and don't want to work out. Plan for overcoming: Do it anyway. I am pushing myself to work out even when I am tired and don't want to. I am trying to push myself to do something, even if it is just some squats or pushups. I have found that once I get started doing more of a work out is easier and I want to do it. I am really trying to give myself realitic goals that I can achieve and that will help me to make the next goal. It is a process. Steps that need to be made before you can take the next step. But I am learning to walk.
