Well, first off, thank you all so much for all the comments and encouragement. I feel much more inspired and confident!
I only have time for a super quick update today, because I need to get myself to bed very soon.
Here’s the thing about doing it all. I have known for quite some time that I absolutely cannot do it all. There’s now way I can accomplish everything that I’d really like to, and I have accepted that. I’m perfectly fine with that – I don’t even try to do it all. (Did you notice how strict calorie counting and meal planning were NOT a part of my plan?) Here’s what I’m having a harder time accepting: I can’t do even as much as 10% of what I’d like to do. I can rarely accomplish even 60% of what I think that I can. And I can’t do half as much as others around me are doing. That’s what is so hard to accept. When several things are super important to me, how do I choose among them?
Tonight I had to choose between spending a little time with my good friends (which I think is important and something we all need, and I’ve been feeling more of a need for that lately), my workout, or my sleep! I could only pick two – it would be physically impossible to have all three. What would you choose? No matter what decision I made, I still feel like I didn’t quite win, you know? I tried my hardest to fit it all in, but it didn’t work. There’s only 24 hours in a day.
Other than that, I’m still feeling positive, and I did really well with my eating today. It was both relatively low calorie and super healthy and high protein. I had hoped to photojournal my foods, but kept forgetting. Hopefully I’ll remember tomorrow. I thought it might be fun to post my food photos on here every once in a while. I also tried a new, super healthy, high protein, tasty, quick, and easy breakfast recipe that I can’t wait to share with you all!
