Yesterday morning, my friend, Nicole, and I attended a morning fitness class. We got up super early (4:45 A.M.) to get to a 5:30 A.M. class. It was hard to get up that early after being off from school for two weeks. However, I managed to drag myself out of bed to meet Nicole. The class was an introductory class. We tried a workout that morning, and it was a lot of fun. In fact, I am a bit sore today.
Nicole and I decided to go to the nutrition class this morning to see what it was all about. Again, we got up at 4:30 A.M. to get to the nutrition class. The night before, the instructor emailed information about the three different nutrition plans. There was also a cookbook. It was a lot of information, and of course, I was overwhelmed. I knew this program would mean a total change in my eating habits. I am still not sure I could commit to the whole plan. I called Nicole and told her I didn’t think I could do it. She helped me put it in perspective. She told me to just concentrate on making one small change instead of looking at the big picture. I need to focus on the things I can do and not on what I can’t.
I realize in the long run changing my eating habits will be better for me. But, if I want to really make a change, I have to make sure it is something that I can keep up. If I I make it too hard for myself, I won’t be able to. So, here’s my plan. I am going to drink more water, limit my coffee intake, and eat something green everyday. (I just realized I wrote the words “try to”. I went back and deleted that.). I am going to make an effort to stick to those goals. I know I am going to make mistakes. I am not perfect. As with every goal I attempt, I have to remember to be kind to myself if I fail. It will all work itself out.
