Blog Post from my friend, Lisa Ensor.
My mom and I love talking about health, nutrition etc. One Fall day we were walking with B in the stroller talking about how it feels like we are in the same "rat race" of diets and "trying" all the time. I said out loud- "Why is it everything in life WORTH having takes HARD WORK and EFFORT? Like marriage, friendship and my health. I keep waiting for it to be easy, for someone to hand my a step by step plan that take no effort. I want all the results, but not the discipline. I want something different without doing anything different."
But really all the effort is worth it. Every time I make a decision to be discipline, I gain a little more self confidence! I'm proud of myself all day and then it gets easier the next time. That's not to say I don't ever have a bad eating day or have dessert every once in a while.
I have to continually remind myself what it takes: like watching the biggest loser or counting calories on the app on my phone. It keeps my mind renewed to what I really want in life.
