I have been standing too close to my line in the sand lately.
In my mind I have many reasons why I am too close to my number:
--- I retain water like a sponge
--- It's been too hot to exercise as much as I would like
--- I'm Italian, me and food were made to go together
--- We are never home at the same time to make good meals
--- It's easier to eat out
--- I can have french fries just this one time
In reality though, these are just excuses.
It's time to put the excuses aside and get serious again. So I have made a commitment to:
--- Drinking 4-5 16 oz. glasses of water per day
--- Doing some serious hiking at least twice a week
--- Picking the healthiest option on the restaurant menu
--- Continuing my daily walks and yoga
--- Just being more active
I know this will be a constant battle my whole life.
The good news is, after starting to put these positive things in action last week, I am slowly backing away from that Line in the Sand.
