Why do we fail? So many reasons. Unrealistic Goals. Too strict. Too determined, then when life happens, we freak out if we missed one workout or ate one extra cookie. I fail because I don't have a happy/medium. The one's who have it together, need to have a self-help group for those of us who just can't get it together. I would gladly go to your class.

I'll tell you why I fail. Because I'm a monster. 2 days ago, I wrote, I was over my comfort level for weight, and now today, I'm 1/2 lb. less. I have been trying, but I haven't been writing much down, but haven't been over portioning. Yesterday I bought a box of Whoppers and Mike & Ikes. I managed to seriously count them out to serving size, and when I wanted more, I told myself I'm still going to want more, and that doesn't help anything. I don't exercise to eat more, I do it to burn what I already ate....blah blah blah...I told myself the same thing last night after I got some chips and salsa together, wasn't even done with the stuff I had and was like ooh I want more! Then thought, after that, your still going to want more. I'm a absolute monster. Back to my bad habits, telling myself it's ok, just eat it, be happy, but I'm not happy when my pants are too tight and the scale laughs at me. So, what'a girl to do. Portions, Control, Breaking Habits.

Does anyone else get jealous when they hear someone went for a run, went to the gym, did Jillian Michaels, insanity or any other activity? I get like crazy jealous, even if I already worked out for the day. Like baby cry:: whaaa whaaaa how come they can do it but I can't?! I always say don't worry about what other people are doing, worry about what your doing, but sometimes it's hard to mind your own bizz. Do you ever wonder how people see results doing those crazy exercise programs like P90X. Like for real? You really do it everyday for 30 days? Sure you did, then I wonder if they were first time worker-outters, then I don't believe them, then ask what did you eat!? Tell us EXACTLY what you ate, we know EXACTLY what exercises you did. Tell me your background, do you have kids, are you a single parent, what is your job like, I know they have people saying 'Oh I'm a single mom and I work out before the kids get up from bed, and I pre-cook every meal on Sunday and then freeze them, my life is so easy now.' Really lady, then come over to my house! I might just put a classified ad in the paper for a nutritionist to come and cook my weekly food every Sunday. Consider this my want ad, serious inquirers only....
