Wise, or a fool?
With my success, without much work, I found myself thinking “hhmmm, maybe I can do this without working so hard”. My response to my thoughts came loud and aggressive “NOT!!!” Can you believe it? I can be so foolish! My husband and I have been talking lately about the difference between a wise man and a fool…. Well a wise man learns from his mistakes, a fool just keeps making the same mistakes over and over. I have been such a fool!! I can see where I have failed in the past and not learned from it, and don’t plan to continue to be foolish….So for now, I will be wise. I have gotten back on track and realize that I was just “dumb lucky” that the scale showed less and not more.
This next few weeks will be a bit challenging. Christmas for our family is parties with real food. Not just desserts, I can handle those, it is the planned meals of tamales, chili, cheese and Mexican buffet. Oh how I just love Mexican food!! So I will have to make a decision… Do I eat without reserve and exercise like crazy, or do I exercise normal and control my eating? I haven’t decided yet, but I will. The fact that I am thinking about this in advance, and working out a plan is a step in the right direction.
I love Christmas, and I love the entire season. I look forward to spending time with those I love so very much, and I truly believe I can make it through the season and come out on the other end with “less of me”.
