Floundering

Floundering

Have you ever looked back over your blog posts and realize how much you’ve floundered about some issues??  
I feel like I switch back and forth with my weight loss plan too much. From strict eating plans like 21 day fix to more flexible eating plans like weight watchers. 
Writing this blog has helped me process my thoughts in a reflective way and reading older posts sometimes brings to light weaknesses I wouldn’t otherwise see. 
My current weakness – dedication. 
There’s no one right or wrong way to eat, but choosing a plan and sticking with it for the long haul is key for success.  I need consistency and routine to feel at my best.  Looking back I know that at times my rebellious side fights against the security and safety of routine for funs sake.  At those times, I feel like what the heck I only live once and I want cake — all the cake — so I eat it. 
Sadly, the old saying “little happy now, big sad later” rings true.  Over indulging always comes back to bite me.  Either my body physically refuses the extra food and I’m up all night in the restroom OR I feel so sluggish that I can barely function. 

I need to remember “little sad now, big happy later” in these moments.  A little sacrifice in the moment will be infinitely worth it in the long run!
What about you?  Do you struggle with the “now” like me?
