I can't seem to get back into my good habits. To top it off, my daughter is coming again this weekend and bringing her boyfriend along. And . . . the following weekend they are coming again, as it is our family reunion and pot luck. My husband did buy some fruits and stuff, which were nice, for our card night with my folks. He even surprised me with some flowers he picked by the roadside. I love my daughter and her boyfriend but I am still not back in the habit of doing things the way I was before she came and now this. I have gained back about 12 lbs. now, but some of that could be menstrual related or because it was evening with clothes on when I weighed but still, I have gained back at least ten. I have not been walking or working out either. I am finding it too hot and too many mosquitoes and people throw rocks on you when they drive by and I just don't have the time. I can't keep up with everything as it is, yet, when I read my napolean hill thought for the day it seemed to speak directly to me on this subject. It said, " IF YOU HAVEN’T THE WILLPOWER TO KEEP YOUR PHYSICAL BODY IN REPAIR, YOU ALSO LACK THE POWER OF WILL TO MAINTAIN A POSITIVE MENTAL ATTITUDE IN OTHER IMPORTANT CIRCUMSTANCES THAT CONTROL YOUR LIFE.
A Positive Mental Attitude is not developed in a single decision to replace negative thoughts with their positive equivalent. It is a sustained commitment that requires personal discipline, the same kind of discipline that is required to stay in shape and maintain your physical health. It is a commitment that must be reinforced daily, or it is soon forgotten and cast upon the scrap heap of good intentions. When you take charge of your fate and determine that you will live positively in every aspect of your life-physical and mental-you will receive an extra benefit. Positive physical conditioning will reinforce your Positive Mental Attitude, and your positive attitude will help you stay in better physical condition." so how perfect is that?! I know what I need to do, I just don't seem to have the mindset anymore. I lost it. I need to get my groove back.
