The plan was to go to the gym this morning, but so far I’ve been able to do some stretching and I just keep running back to the toilet. I know it’s because didn’t eat the best this weekend and I want to remember this moment when I am deciding to go for some chips or fries next time.
The short term gratification isn’t worth the long term effects. Now I know I’m not going to be running to the toilet forever, but I more so mean what it is doing to my insides and how I am delaying my own progress.
This morning I had a couple bites of some overnight oats I made myself. This was my first time making them, and although the texture is a bit weird, they aren’t bad! I don’t often want breakfast, but I want to get into the habit of having at least a couple bites right when I start my morning. I can just bring the rest of my oats to work and finish them as a please.
Reminder to self: the small steps matter, and small steps repeated make a big difference over time. Pay attention to your body, and listen to what it’s telling you.
