If you fail to plan…you plan to fail!

I made it through Easter weekend!
By now you know how much I love fried chicken…peeps are the candy equivalent!  I haven’t had one…yet!  The only thing better than fried chicken is a sugar coated one, LOL!  Just kidding…but not really 😀  I better stop before Matt has me doing a Dirty Dozen!!!  Yikes!
Seriously though, it hasn’t been tough since I’ve developed better habits.  I’ve found that most of the things that I was doing before to sabotage myself I was doing unconsciously…not while knocked out, lol…by that I mean my actions weren’t purpose driven.  I wanted to get into better shape, but I wasn’t aligning my actions with my goal.  I’m not saying that I have to starve myself; besides, knowing me I’d end up sleep walking and eating anyway 🙂  I just had to stop eating nonchalantly.  For now, I write down my daily food intake and plan out my day.  It makes a big difference!  If you fail to plan…you plan to fail!  I always have an emergency snack and a plan B just in case!
The most important thing that I’ve learned is that you have to be willing to push past the hurdles…and there will be some if you are trying to accomplish something meaningful!  Stay the course!  I was able to enjoy my Easter weekend and still stay on track with my goal!  It’s the best feeling ever!
When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, til it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.
