The Road to Success!
"They" say the road to success is paved with many small success. I'm obliged to agree with that statement. So far I am on Week Three Day Two of a running program I never thought I would get this far in. I have stayed gluten-free for 5 or is it 6 months- even though I've had 'flour affairs' on Pinterest (you know, when the people you follow post six billion images of fantastic looking desserts and you stare and them like women porn- yup!). I struggle mainly with my energy. I know that if I complete my workouts and eat clean/well that I will have more energy EVENTUALLY- the cycle/problem is when I am too tired to make good food or put on my workout clothes, needless to say actually workout! I seem to have moderately found a way to break the exhausted cycle and step out into a different light. I'm not saying that I haven't had to fight (I mean FIGHT) some crazy cravings, and had to get very realistic with myself about why I want to eat/not workout/ be a fat slob... but I am feeling better, more balanced and realistic in my goals and actually taking pride in my small successes! Today's success- I finished my run on the treadmill even though: my son spilled 2 cups of water on the floor and was talking ENDLESSLY to me while I'm trying to concentrate on running, our dogs are running around like crazy people (perhaps sensing that I'm not paying attention), the housework is piling up, and I'm out of water- seriously- if that is not a success then I don't know what is!
