Balance is SO important. I just recently went through a rough spell where my life was very unbalanced, it made doing laundry hard, let alone sticking to a diet!
Mindfulness.. thats my personal motto, LIVE IN THE MOMENT, be mindful of what you eat, what you do for excercise.... understand that its what you do MOST days that makes the difference.. slipping up one day out of 10 is not going to kill you, and it doesn't mean that you have failed.. be MINDFUL of the ultimate goal always, and make choices wisely!
Some days those choices are harder than others.. some days its VERY hard to ignore the jar of candy that is *thisclose* to my desk!! (darn the skinny blond lady i share an office with). Every day i CHOOSE to ignore it though.. thats a victory.. i relish in the small victories.
Welcome.. you CAN do this.. we all can.. and we all will
.. congrats on coming here.. that was a very good choice.. the ladies here are grr-eat!
