Aiming for Perfection

Saturday, October 06, 2012

They say you shouldn't do that.

They say that you're setting yourself up for failure, for giving up, for disappointment.

I've already failed, I'm ready to give up, and I'm already disappointed.

Clearly, my haphazard, unsystematic methods haven't been working. They have culminated into my highest weight ever. EVER.

So now I'm aiming for perfection.

I'm not accepting excuses. I'm not eating waffles or mac and cheese. I'm not going to eyeball portions. I'm not taking cookies and cakes from co-workers. I'm not drinking alcohol. I'm not not working out. I'm not not getting enough sleep for any reason.

I have a fulltime job and a part-time job. I just hired myself on for another part-time job--losing weight and getting healthy.

Of course, I'm not perfect. I will probably do some things that take me further, rather than closer to my goal. But it's not okay when that happens. It's not "Oh, well." It's not something to be blase about. No. Haphazardry ends now.

    You are smart to think of it like a part-time job!! I like that way of looking at a healthy lifestyle. Cuts down on the excuses!

    Oh, how I could have written this blog myself. I was saying the same things to myself as I added my weigh in this morning. I am starting this challenge .02 pounds less than the summer challenge. Really? All I have to show for the last 3+ months is .02 lost?? I can do better than that! I will do better than that! So, my little starfish sister...I am in the battle with you!! Love ya girl!! emoticon emoticon

    I know how it is to feel disappointed in oneself but then find ways to shrug it off. If you pick yourself up again & get back on track, that's great--but too often shrugging it off, for me anyway, means letting myself do more of the same. I'm proud of you for mustering your determination & shooting high.


    And thanks again for the virtual $$. I'm happy to have any kind of $, even virtual. emoticon
