2 weeks update
Saturday, December 08, 2012
I missed last week’s update, so I have two weeks to catch up on. Things are nuts; it’s that time of year. I feel like a ball in a pinball machine bouncing here to there – but just can’t seem to get anything done! Chaos rules for the next few weeks, which is maddening to me, but as I get older I’m learning to let a lot more roll off. There are only 24 hours in a day and I am one person and I can do what I can do…and that’s OKAY!
Moving on! Thanksgiving threw me for a loop and I’ve been working hard to get back on track. I gained 2.4 on that Saturday’s weigh in. Last week I was down 2 and this week I lost .4, so I’m back to where I was before Turkey day. I’m a little disappointed as I thought this week would be a little better, but I’ll try to use that as motivation to push forward for this week and hope for better results next week.
What drives me crazy is THIS:
Can you say OCD? I absolutely hate the fact that my blue line is above the goal line. And with this Thanksgiving’s slide, coupled with my slower rate of loss, who knows WHEN I’ll ever catch back up to that goal line. GRRRR. I have been wanting to reset my goal and my ticker since my physical last month, but wanted to hit my original goal first. (The doctor said she’d like to see me lose an additional 10 lbs past my original goal) Maybe I just need to readjust and recalibrate now so I don’t have to look at the blue line that will likely never catch up.
Then there’s the other school of thought that tells me to leave it until I reach my original/first goal. LEARN to deal with that slip up. GET OVER IT and don’t let it mess with you. Similar to one who is trying to overcome an allergy – when you continually expose yourself to it, hopefully it desensitizes you. Maybe I need to leave it there as part of this journey, to learn to accept it as part of the process, complete with all its imperfections.
I don’t know what I’ll do. I won’t make any changes today, but we’ll see where my head is next week. As for right now, I’m going to make this a great week with great decisions and KEEP MOVING FORWARD!
