The inimitable Jack S***T had a wonderfully inspiring post on his blog about how it really doesn't work to give 55%. Making it clear why he's at goal and I'm not.
[Insert disclaimers here.]
For various reasons, adequate and not, I'm okay with that. I don't give 100% to my body every day. Right now, most of that energy is spoken for. What I can do is this--
Eat a few of my own cookies (alas, I know what I'm doing in the cookie department)-- slowly and with pleasure rather than wolfing them down guiltily.
Eat good meals and forgo snacks if I have succumbed to the above.
Exercise every other day if I'm not managing every day.
Keep the house stocked with good stuff (that dreaded planning thing).
Cover the sweet stuff up or put it away. The cookie boxes will be launched soon. Meanwhile I covered them all with towels. It helps!
It's 55%. But that's what I got right now.
How about you?
