Consistency... it's what matters
So, I'm back on the health train. Working out more often, eating healthy, adding fruits and veggies, and limiting sugar. Why?
I have several health conditions that could be better at a healthy weight. I've had three doctors and a husband tell me that my inactivity might be hampering my health. (The husband did it in a nice way, which kept him from being in the dog house.)
So I'm taking it one day and one meal at a time. This was a travel weekend for me. So I wasn't totally in charge of what was set in front of me for meals. But I could control my portions and limit my sugar. I didn't succeed as well as I'd wanted, but I had some victories.
And more importantly, I got on the treadmill every day this weekend for a workout.
Getting in shape is like writing a book. It's the little choices you make every day that makes a difference. At least for me. I know some writers binge write - sit and write for hours upon hours, especially at deadline. That's their process, not mine.
I like a more leasurely path. If I write every day, I keep the story growing in my head and don't have to go without sleep for a week to get the book done.
I'm thinking my road back to health will be this slower path too.
