I'm finding that most of my daily decisions revolve around food and exercise.
I want a bagel for breakfast. Should I get one? If I do, that means I should definitely go to the gym. Or if I don't get a bagel, I can skip the gym. Or I can get a big lunch. But I should walk home regardless and eat a light dinner. And if I have a light dinner, I am allowed a glass of wine.
It's like a game I play with myself. But I also realized that I can make all the RIGHT decisions for my whole day (no bagel/eat a healthy breakfast instead, go to the gym instead of skipping, normal-sized lunch, light dinner, maybe wine) and I might actually get somewhere that way. If I keep up the bad decisions/good decisions game, I'll keep allowing myself to make some bad decisions, and I will get nowhere.
This sounds pretty random but one time I read this interview with Chris Pratt ("Guardians of the Galaxy," "Parks and Rec," etc.) about how he lost all that weight. He said something, and I'm paraphrasing, along the lines of "well I figured I could get a big sandwich for lunch, or I could get a salad. If I get a salad, then I might make progress." It's weirdly inspiring and it makes sense. It's all about making the right choices on a consistent basis.
