I was on my way to a craft afternoon that i'm helping to organize. I'm walking down the street thinking i really should have stayed home to tidy up the house, heck i could even have used a nap :) It's cold, i'm tired and i really don't want to do this!!!! But i promised someone that i would, so i did.
Now that got me thinking..... how come when i promise someone i will help them i do it no matter what excuses may pop up. However, when it comes to making time for exercise, drinking my water, or picking something healthy over something not as healthy i have every excuse in the book and i use them!!! Why when i promise myself to do something don't i just do it, like i would for someone else.
So all afternoon i've been mulling this over in my head!! I lose a couple of pounds, i gain a couple of pounds, why????? I don't keep promises that i make to myself. Well that has to change, here and now.
I promise myself that i will exercise at least 3 times a week.
I promise myself that i will drink at least 8 cups of water a day!!
I promise that i will choose healthy food over unhealthy food.
Do you keep the promises that you make to yourself??
