Finding Balance

Friday, May 20, 2011

I don't know about everyone else but sometimes it seems hard to find a balance.

Right now I feel like I'm bringing it pretty good with exercise but I could do way better on my diet. Or in the past if I've watched my diet I've neglected to exercise. I, for some odd reason, find it hard to find a balance. Its like I can focus on one but just be ok on the other. I know I can do better on this.

Its not that I eat completely horribly but if I want something I eat it. I'll track calories really well during the day but in the evening I find it harder. Especially if I cook something. I know there are great benefits to planning your meals out a head of time and its something I'm currently not doing. That could be the next step for me.

I want more. I'm ready for more. I truly thing that if I put my mind to it I can see both benefits from exercise and watching my diet better. Other people on the spark do it all the time and I know I can also.

Hope everyone has a good weekend! I'm hoping for a little less rain than we have been getting. Maryland is saturated!!!

    I had the same struggles, but I do great with my diet - just need to exercise more. I find that cooking your meals gives you a great sense of accomplishment toward your diet. I enjoy cooking though, and cook supper nearly 7 nights a week. I've turned a hobby into a healthy lifestyle; you may not have the time or schedule for it, but it certainly helps when you know exactly what you're eating and are proud that you MADE it!

    Keep it up!
