I am not scared to admit that I am a procrastinator. The first step is admittance, right?
It definitely affects my life in negative ways and I have NO idea where this trait came from. The hardest part on the weight-loss journey is I cannot, for the life of me, plan. I can write lists coming up with ways to prevent over-eating or ideas of healthy snacks to carry along with me til my fingers bleed. But I cannot put those words into action. Excercising really isn't a problem for me. Its really not that hard, I can find time for it usually everyday if I really try, and it doesn't take too much brain power. But the eating thing is always what gets me down.
I admire people who can spend an entire day planning for their upcoming week and I want to emulate them. I use the excuses "I'm young still, I've got time," "I just started school and am still getting used to my schedule" (while legitimate, shouldn't give me reason to be a lazy lump all week and eat whatever I want), and "But..but.. my PERIOD.. WAHHHH!" I need to stop it but once I get into my head it is EXTREMELY hard to get out of it. I lull myself into thinking that these behaviors are ok and I'll get back on track sometime, I'll get there eventually... I WANT to be there now!! You hear me cravings?!
I wanna be this person.
So if there is anyone out there that feels me or has some advice that works for them please share, I need an extreme kick in the butt!
Thanks, Laura (:
