Criminal Promises

I am tired of making what Jennifer Louden calls “criminal promises”. These are promises that you make to yourself even though you know you will never keep them. My biggest criminal promise is that I will go on a diet. I don’t think I will ever go on a real diet. Instead, I need to promise myself I will exercise and eat mindfully, which is something very different.

With that in mind, I recently ordered the Yourself!Fitness program for my Playstation 2. The shipping time given was unbelievable slow given I had to pay for UPS, but I am counting the days until it arrives. I even want to pick up a step and a heartrate monitor to be extra ready.

One Response to Criminal Promises

  1. I love the phrase, “Criminal Promises;” it’s vast in it’s implications yet simple. Sometimes we do feel like criminals if we can’t keep our own promises to ourselves. I think it helps not to put too much on our plates that it overwhelms us. As long as we do our best in everything we do, even if it is not perfect, at least we know we did our best. Then and only then, we can move forward gracefully to explore other aspects of our being. Peace be with you. 🙂
