Taking Care Of Yourself

Does anyone else find it very difficult to do the right thing when it comes to keeping yourself happy and healthy? I know I do. I mean, I never seem to get to the gym, I always seem to be eating the wrong things, I never seem to drink enough water, but diet soda and beer seem to find a home pretty well. I have a love/hate relationship with taking care and it comes and goes all the time. I lost a lost of weight 5 years ago and pretty much kept most of it off until last year. I as exercising enough, only eating crazy some of the time and basically maintaining pretty well. Then, and this is an excuse but it’s true, Vera got pregnant again. I was all in with the preggo meal and bed rest plan. Little to no exercise mixed with pregnancy craving-based eating does not make for a six-pack. I’m feeling it and I know I need to behave, but I’m stuck in the rut of eating poorly and not really exercising. I’ve joined LA Fitness by my house and like it…I just have to get the routine down but man, this is a tough one. I have to eat better, drink more water, be in that healthy mind state. I know I can swing back, I’ve done it before, but sometimes I need to really hit a point in my head to go all in the right way. I don’t know what that trigger is or when it kicks in to be honest, but I know it’s there and I know it’s coming. It just really bums be out that I gave back half the gains I made from 2008. It really, really irks me. I wish it was easier, but it’s not, and I know that, but the results tend to be the same. Hey, it’s just one BBQ, sure just one dinner, man this is a great client event. Fortunately, we are collectively pretty lucky, but you have to be good when you are not at an event and really make up the difference. Sometimes it’s difficult to wind it back when you are going full on in the festive direction. I think I am getting to the snapping point…but the snap has not snapped yet…
