this is a ridiculous complaint, but i think that the fact that i'm unemployed and have tons and tons of free time is actually HURTING my weight loss goals. i'm not one of those people who really thrives on free time - i don't like having a super structured schedule, but i do like to be busy. when i'm working during the day or have tasks to do, i do a better job of planning out or considering what i'll be eating and how i can get in my daily exercise, but with a completely free day...every day...i don't actually do much of anything. it's so easy to put things off, and just getting to the grocery store or taking the dog to the park feels like the only thing i get done in a day.
i need to somehow find a way to make "being healthy" feel like my full time job right now. i know that probably sounds like a bad idea, but i think if i can make that my goal until i find a full-time, paid job, it might help my attitude to stop being so lazy (something i've never considered myself or been accused of before!) and focus on achieving my weight-loss goals.
any advice on how to get my brain into the right place?
