DisciplineSince the summer of 2012, I have lacked discipline. Not all the time, but too much of the time. I have let my weight do the slow crawl back up. While I was at 209 at the beginning of the summer, I am somewhere close to 220 now.

With the new year, I was, of course, thinking about this and making a resolution to lose weight. As I thought about it, I wondered if doing that is what I really needed to resolve to do. Is there something more I needed to resolve to do.

The word “discipline” kept coming to my mind.

Not to resolve to lose weight, but resolve to be disciplined in what and how much I eat.

Not to resolve to exercise more, but resolve to be disciplined in my exercise regimen.

I like it. There is almost a manly warrior feeling to it.

So for me, 2013 will be the year of DISCIPLINE. (picture me here with a steely-eyed look)

One Comments to “Discipline”

  1. DISCIPLINE IS NEVER COMPLETELY LEARNED—it takes a lifetime. It is hard when you have a family and friends who like to eat to turn away from it. Just keep setting your discipline in all things—not just food !
    btw—i gained a little while there, too. good stuff!
