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.
