Fitness Confession……

So as you know I’m all about eating right, excercising, eliminatiing all the things that will hinder me from reaching my goals. Well at least I have been TRYING to be all about that.

My confession today is all about falling down and picking yourself back up. Yesterday I had the worst cravings in the whole entire earth. I started off good. I had a nice healthy smoothie but then closer to about 10 a.m. the worst cravings hit. I wanted CARBS. Granted carbs are not bad IF you chose the right ones, the complex ones of course. But let me tell ya, there was NOTHING complex about the carbs i chose yesterday. I had a nice size bag of LAYS potato chips. Afterwards I said ok, that’s enough im not eating anything else that is just junk like that, and so i proceeded to eat my salad that i brought for lunch. In the midst of me doing so my co-worker comes over and says, want some cookie cake. I know you don’t know me but, I LOVE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES!! They are a weakness, and now she is offering me that in the form of a cake. i couldn’t turn it down. So i scarfed that down. THEN about an hour or two later I want more sweats, so i go to the vending machine and grab a twx. Im just a big fat mess at this point. But the buck doesn’t stop there people. I head to Whole Foods thinking ill pick a healthy snack. I guess it would have been healthy had i not ate all that horrible stuff prior. I get a six in sandwich on WHITE BREAD. It wasn’t really all that good but i ate it nonetheless. THEN when i get home i want to eat MORE. So around 9 pm my husband goes and gets popeye’s chicken. OMG it was so good!! i had a piece of chicken and two biscuits. And then I had the nerve to go to sleep right afterwards.

Needless to so though peeps, I felt horrible. Which actually motivated me to wake up and do my workout. Just because fell doesn’t mean I have to stay down. Its really all about being consistent. And realizing that eating right and exercising is not something that is temporary, it should be a way of life…..PERIOD! 

Today though i have been just as hungry but i came prepared. I brought foods that I knew would satisfy my cravings but are healthy and less in fat and carbs and saturated fats.

At any rate I am going to succeed in making this a way of life FO LIFE!! I hope you all have a successful day!!

Land Of Make Beleive

How do I read when you speak of me?
Frolicking in meadows, drinking from my melodic streams?
This is how I long for you to envision me in your dreams

Thoughts and feelings hid deep in your chest
Is it so deep and repressed that I am forced to guess?

Forced to tell my heart and body these make believe stories
Making myself believe that you’ve given me all your glory
All your love and emotion you have shown thee

See,
I awaken to discover the reality
You’re unable to even write poetry
About me
To explain to me
Expressions that you can express freely

No midday thoughts
No hidden lullabies’
Just morning salutations
And nightly goodbye’s

No thoughtful gifts
Or a sporadic kiss
Or a lustful stare at my hips and lips
That could possibly send your mind on a wondrous trip

No words that rhyme
For me to read to pass away my time
Deaming me your dime
Frequently lamenting “remember that one time?”

And no photo stills to replay in your mind
To hold in your pocket, like I do mine
To show off to friends talking bout “man ain’t she fine?”

This is what I see when I discover reality
Your inability to cleave to me passionately
To love me intensely

So I close my eyes and play pretend
Pretend that I am your air and you are my wind

In this state of mind I chose to deceive
That you and I are in the land of make believe
