Just read a great post on a paleo blog about taking responsibility. Responsibility for you fitness, diet, body, everything. This post really made me think. I like to think that I accept responsibility for everything I do, but honestly I don't. The last couple of days I've been trying to get my diet under control. It's getting better, but I'm still succumbing to the sweet treats. I can give you any number of reasons excuses but the fact of the matter is, I've been abdicating responsibility of my diet to my cravings. That is ridiculous. Absolutely. Ridiculous. I don't want to live my life avoiding sweets forever, but I also don't need to have them every single day. They are meant to be eaten once in a while, hence the name treat. So no more abdicating responsibility of any parts of my life. While I might have given up on the weight loss thing, I have not given up on the healthy thing. I want to be healthy, to have energy, and to feel good. That is one thing Crossfit has taught me. The number on the scale does not determine my happiness or how good I feel. I have not weighed myself in easily 4 weeks and I don't care. I know how I feel - pretty good - and I know how I want to feel - amazing. The number on the scale has zero control over that. So there is my responsibility manifesto.I will not allow food, healthy or treat, to rule my life. I will not allow the scale to determine how I feel. I will take control over what I put in my body and what I do with my body. From this moment forward.
