In my last post, I indulged in every possible craving I had in LA. Actually, it didn’t start there, it probably started during the last week I was in KL because I love Malaysian food, and then it continued in Vancouver because it had been over a year since I visited my hometown. Which then led to a feast of bites in Toronto before I flew off to Beijing. So you get the idea…
I didn’t have a cheat day, I didn’t stop at a cheat week, I carried on and had cheat month. So now I have to pay for it. 🙁
So I found a fantastic quote from a trainer and I found this so apt!
Live by choice, not by chance, to make changes, not excuses, to be motivated, not manipulated, to be useful, not used. Choose self esteem, not pity. Choose to listen to your inner voice, not the random opinion of other. Sometimes we get lost of who we are are because of other people in our lives. It can happen so fast sometimes you donâ€™t even know where the slide all began. You compromise yourself and do things that are not genuine or a reflection of the real you. Youâ€™ll be confused because you wonâ€™t know whom to please, or how and will hurt your self esteem. Be who you are! Have the courage to accept yourself as you really are, not as as someone else thinks you should be. Do not take action or pretend to be someone else for the sake of gaining acceptance.
I think pertains not just to exercise but to life. Time to take your pride in yourself and aim high!
