Life Keeps Throwing You Mountains And You Just Have To Keep Climbing Them Again And Again...
That quote is so applicable for me today.
I have had a few financial set backs, a large filling dental restoration work is required, the car has just been serviced, and while I am not quite at the stage of needing payday advances I do need to be very conservative in my spending at the moment.
I am cutting and pasting for my own private future use the 12WBT program as I went from unfit to sick over the duration of round 1 2011 and was unable to even start the program, although I did exercise most days and ate healthy up until this last couple of weeks when I had a 'why bother' moment with each shopping trip.
Why bother? I'll tell you why I should bother. There are a few dirty words I can think of.
Diabetes, increased risk of cancer, heart and lung disease, and stroke, not to mention dementia are all linked to that 'why bother' way of thinking about diet and exercise. I happen to consider myself fortunate that at nearing age 65 I do not have diabetes. I know the occasional meringue is not going to make me a diabetic overnight but I know for a certainty that a year of eating that way at my age and health status, almost certainly would.
I do not want that. I will be mindfully eating, it is worth the bother.
So my little indulgence in self pity shopping when I was out picking up my antibiotics, is over for the moment. I'll weigh myself and check out the damage and get right back on track :-) .
