Wins and Losses

Writen by: Hank Wethington

On a day that started off with great health news (I’m officially below the threshold for obese on the BMI scale), I’m very emotional in how I’m dealing with some family medical issues and what it might mean for the upcoming months and possibly years. While I won’t get into the specifics right now, suffice to say that the emotional roller coaster I’m on has me wanting to fall back into the trap of comfort food eating.

What I need most right now is to get out and run, something I can’t do for a few more hours. In the mean time I’m surrounded by sugar, garlic bread, candy, crackers and a host of other bad eating choices and I want them all.

It amazes me how easily and quickly we can go back to bad habits. They don’t die; they jut stick around waiting for moments to destroy all that we work for.

While this is mainly about eating for me, the truth is that it happens everyday in business, relationships, drugs, etc. our bad habits and all the years we participated in them have set up mental highways so wide that when “lost” we want to get on a familiar road.

Today, I refuse. I will do what is right. I will listen to my friends, I will fall back on my training and I will not let my old habits rule the day. Join me!
