Many of us are impatient. Whether standing in long lines or waiting for our dinner to re-heat, we just can’t stand to wait. I don’t know how I survived the tape cassette decade. All that rewinding, fast forward-ing… it was torture!
In my quest for my old stripper body, I started eating healthy and hitting the gym again. Three weeks have gone by and the weight is coming off, but it’s coming off SLOWLY.
My fear is that I will get frustrated that I am not at my goal weight fast enough, drown my sorrows in a bowl of ice-cream and chalk it up to just being “in my 40s”. Then part of me realizes that’s silly and I talk myself off the Häagen-Dazs ledge and get back to working on myself.
Never one to back down from a fear-induced fight (with myself), I will forge ahead – impatiently.
It’s been said a watched pot never boils. I’m sure the same thought process works for the scale. I will try my best not to weigh in daily and go about life living healthy and happy, as I have been. Fitness is a bi-product of a lifestyle, after all. I am getting in to better shape not because I am happy – but I am happy because I am in better shape.
So how about you? Are you impatient with anything?
