The Willpower Muscle

Thursday, October 25, 2018

Ok so I have to make the confession ... I have been in a freefall state as of late with my weight loss. I mean totally out of control no calorie counting, no working out, doing and eating whatever I want when I want. Surprise surprise when I stepped on the scale this morning after months of ignoring it there was a gain, a HUGE gain at that. Now mind you I spent the weekend away and ate terribly and expect some of it to still drop off however ... there is NO excuse !!!
My willpower muscle is broken, not just broken it is completely and totally shattered into five thousand pieces. I struggle with my food choices, with getting in my exercise the entire process is out of balance and in chaos. No more !!
Today I woke up and worked out (tricked my brain into it before I actually knew what I was doing). I WILL eat properly and say no to the junk, I WILL drink my water and get this process started again. I once read that the more you work your will power muscle the stronger it becomes, so my first goal is to get that under control. With every no thank you and passing on the bad I will feel empowered and actually start to believe again that I can do this. I know I can do this I have just been lazy and not put in the work. I give in because that's what my inner child wants NOW. I stopped looking at the overall picture and lived for the wants of the now.
Today not tomorrow, not on Sunday or Monday, not on a future date but TODAY I choose to get back on track. I will do what I need to do to ensure my successful and when I fall on my butt and am feeling down I will get up, brush myself off and keep moving. This journey is not an easy one but it is the most important one I am currently on. I lost sight of that for a while but now its time to do whats got to be done. So today I begin the work on the willpower muscle thats the most important muscle I can possibly pay attention to during this journey :)
