Do the right thing.

Do the right thing. It’s the simplest and, at times, the most challenging thing to do. But you know when you’ve done the right thing. You feel great about yourself. You feel proud of yourself. After all, you’ve done the right thing.

In the last two months I’ve lost 22 pounds by doing the right thing. True, some of the weight that’s come off was the result of an unexpected emergency gall bladder surgery. Most has been other things – walking a ton at work, no longer eating food from restaurants and fast food places, buying groceries at health-concious stores like Trader Joe’s and Sprouts, and drinking as much water as possible. The best part of how this weight has come off is the fact that it’s come off through real, true lifestyle changes. I’m not keeping a food journal. I’m not busting myself down at the gym six days a week. I’m not obsessing about it. I’m just living my life in a different way. I’m looking at food as fuel and not a reward. I’m doing the right thing.

I’m also doing the right thing with my finances. I’m working a job that covers my bills and spending. I’m no longer putting anything on my credit cards. I’m ever so slowly building up an emergency fund. I’m recreating my resume in order add a second job to my workload and pay off my debt faster. I’m doing the right thing.

How are you doing the right thing in your life? Doesn’t it feel great?!?!?
