The taste of health

I brought my workout clothes with me to work today AND a peanut butter and jelly sandwich to eat for a quick meal for dinner. My plan is to change here at work and go straight to the gym. I know that if I stop at the house to change my clothes I will NOT leave again. So my plan is to change here, eat my sandwich here and go directly to the gym, do not pass go, do not collect 200 dollars. I have a few other stops that are right there at the gym, so I should have no excuse!

Last night on the Biggest Loser there was a comment by one of the contestants. They were at a restaurant and she was talking about how her friends had ordered all of the foods that she loved but she was going to eat healthy come hell or high water. Her comment that really struck me was, Nothing on this table tastes better than how I feel. She went on to to say that eating healthy had brought about so much energy and life to her that she had no problem making the healthy choices! How utterly true!!! I feel so good when I'm living healthy and when my weight is down! I feel good emotionally and physically!!! And she is right...there is no greater 'taste' than the feeling of health!

Wow, 2 posts in 2 go girl. Glad you're hanging in there. And good for you for taking your gym clothes to work. I watched the biggest loser too and that show makes me feel like, man, i am losing sooooooooooooo slowly compared to them. sort of a downer for me, but i am fascinated, none the less.

Now you are starting to sound like yourself again. I also had to leave from work, when I had a gym membership. Now you got a bike to conquer. Your ride is creeping up on you.

Hello, I found your blog today and after reading your post, couldn't agree with you more. It definitely helps to keep your workout clothes with you at work. Its like you said, once you get home, chances are you'll get side tracked with dishes, chores or the TV and not workout. For this reason, I always use my lunch hour to work out.

I watched BL this morning before work (thank goodness for dvr) and I that restaurant scene stayed with me as well.

Sounds like you have a great attitude about weight loss. I know its hard but we gotta keep doing what we're doing because eating good and exercise is the best high ever. Take care

Sometimes it's the little moments on TV, or in a conversation, or something non-descript that awaken us to something we should be thinking about. That BL moment had me kinda going "AHA" too. Good for you, you seem to be fighting off the doldrums.
