Doctor’s Visit

So, I just had a checkup with my physician. Nothing is wrong, just a yearly checkup. Everything is normal and I don’t have to go back any time soon. Of course part of the exam was asking about my activity level and eating habits. I proudly told my doctor I work out at least 6 days, sometimes 7 days, a week. As far as my eating, though, I told him it’s mostly healthy but occasionally I cave and have pizza AND ice cream in the same day (like today…..oops.) I expected to get a “mini scolding” about how I need to eat better. Instead, what I was told, was that I was doing fine and just to keep doing what I was doing consistently. It’s funny, as much as I love being “Adirondack Fit Mom,” I am constantly worried that if someone sees me eating pizza they’ll think “She doesn’t deserve to help others….she can’t even help herself.” Isn’t that crazy???? What I need to remember, that the times I do eat pizza, a little is ok, and as long as I hop back into my good eating habits I AM being a good role model for others. I think people need to see that I’m human and I can “fall off the wagon.”

What do you think?

I think I need to loosen up on myself. I know I can eat healthy. I know we ALL get cravings and most of us cave in to those cravings from time to time. I WILL continue to exercise and I WILL continue to struggle with my eating. But because of my stubbornness I know that I WILL succeed in reaching my goals.
