Perfect planning backfired
Monday, November 26, 2012
Wow, so an entire week got away from me!
I haven't forgotten, just honestly postponed logging on day after day after day because I was so tired and busy.... andI know I have perfectionist tendencies, which do not help, and my borderline makes me think I have to do everything perfectly & to completion or why try. I constantly have to remind myself that I don't expect that of others... therefore I should give myself a break and start small.
So what was my point? My point is that I've become so involved in reading all the info, absorbing it all, trying to plan, do everything right, max out points for the day by reading it all... but have neglected to effectively track any eating and any movement.... hmmm... defeats the purpose of earning points, huh? And I am aware of I need to let go of my need to "plan" and just "do."
I've been pretty good... I did enjoy Thanksgiving. I thought long and hard and decided that since this is the one day per year I get to see so much family & get to taste everyone's special dishes that I look forward to tasting every year.... well, I decided I would! But, I was careful, took teaspoonful amounts of a variety of things, took the time to enjoy it...
But I didn't go back for seconds or thirds... didn't attempt to try everything else that hadn't made it to my plate... didn't even eat dessert!!! I didn't make myself sick or too uncomfortable to move!
That is an improvement over previous years.
