Gotta Have Faith

                                Put all excuses aside and remember this: YOU are capable.
                                                                                          — Zig Ziglar

Alright, I am starting. Again. (I really hate that word when it comes to the number of times I have started and stopped a diet in my 43 years!) I am not overly proud of that, but we do what we do, and I know I am not the only one who has followed this pattern. I have my first appointment (in a long time) with Sadist on Monday, and I am sure he will put me through the paces, that is why I call him Sadist, after all.

I am taking this week to readjust my diet. I am going to focus on more protein, by means of protein shakes, and less food right now. I know that after the holiday gluttony, this will be a challenge, but I need to kickstart this newest campaign.


If I look up at the Zig Ziglar quote at the top of the page, and believe it, I will know that I am capable of this. We all just need to have a little more faith in ourselves.

  1. I worry that you bite off too much. I don’t enjoy going to the gym but being healthy is important to me. I listen to my body and respect what it is telling me. But I am also older and maybe be a teeny bit wiser than you! 58 in May!

  2. Be honest with yourself and the Sadist. Try to work yourself hard enough but not so hard that you will get hurt. Try to figure out why you took a hiatus. Don’t think of it as starting again if it makes you feel bad about yourself. Your goal is to. Have the best body mentally and physically as you can. Have you been seeing an internist and a nutritionist? I have always heard that steady exercise and small regular meals are the way to go to maintain health.

    1. I may look into a nutritionist at some point. The good /lucky thing about Sadist and me is that I am honest, brutally so, with him. I need to keep the goals in mind and stop allowing life’s curveballs to throw me off or out. I appreciate how you’re always here with a kind or stern word, or kick in the pants when I need it. Thank you 😉
