What do you do; have a healthy diet, exercise, or spending habits; or Do you LET THE CHIPS FALL and devil take the hindmost. What do you do and how is it working for you?
I constantly vacillated from one to the other with a lot of anxiety about a few extra pounds, some lack of muscle tone and energy. and where my money was going and how much was left and for how long. i never went too far off, but was just careless enough to have a lot of concern a lot of the time.
Recently I found a diet and I totally like the plan and I try to stick with it and I am so much happier. Then, I made a financial plan and I am happier with that. I know what my consequences will be and they stay in my head.
I still have to work and commit to the exercise plan, but I am working on being more active, but I am not succeeding too well. I will just have to make a plan then stick with it. I know I will be happier when I do.
I was brought up with good habits but I kept thinking in the back of my mind that being a grown up means you get to break the rules. I think I am past that; being a grown up means knowing what you want and doing what it takes to get what you want.
I know I can break a rule, but I also know that I will have the consequences to pay. I have always known that, but I know and practice it better now.
I would love to hear from you all about what you do and what motivates you to do it. I am in my 8th decade and I can still do almost anything albeit not as fast, as often, or as long. I am happy and now I just have to get myself committed to an exercise plan, not this slipshod one I have been using most of my life.
