Spark People System Cornerstones - Focus

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

"To make any lasting change or achieve a meaningful goal, you need to have FOCUS. You have to know what you want, why you want it, and how you’re going to make it happen. Without a plan, goals rarely happen by accident. Time used to create a mission out of your goals, develop a driving vision, and get your values in line is time well spent."

I feel this week has been my worst week for focus for any topic, not just my nutrition and fitness, but life in general. I think poor eating habits and lack of sleep are my main contributors to this issue.

I am working to resolve these issues and get back on track. Last night I was in bed by 8:30, and the light was off and the book put away by 9:00. The eating didn't get better today - I said I was going to refocus, but the valentines day candy was calling my name. I need to find my inner will power. I know it is there, I just have buried it deep and need to pull it back out.

Usually when I get into this situation, I can just take a few hours of no computer work, and just relax. I have done that twice this weekend and last Friday night. It hasn't helped which makes me realize that I am in a much deeper hole than normal and it is going to take even more strength than normal to get back on track.

Awareness is step 1, Focus is step 2.

    Why is it something that should be fairly simple is so terribly hard? I am with you in needing my focus back with regards to my poor eating habits. I know what I have to do...just have to focus and do it!!
    Great reminder though that awareness comes least we have that down!
