I was doing really well with my motivation -- I was doing a great job with my PET (plan, exercise, and track) --- up until the second week of December. That's when I started allowing myself to go to the high end of my calorie range,and then for some reason, I would skip a day here and there of my bike riding, and then I even let myself NOT track ----- BINGO ---- BIG mistake! The tracking (good, bad and ugly!!) is a MUST for me --- it's simple --- if it's "outta sight --- then it's outta mind" for me --- that's all there is to it --- end of sentence --- period.
I cannot function w/o my food journal --- if I don't write it down, then I get sloppy ---- and I get sloppy REAL fast! and then that sloppiness spreads like wildfire --- and now, at the end of December, rather than to be feeling really good about how I've done throughout this holiday month, I'm feeling disappointed with myself. I am a visual person and I have to see the check marks for accomplishing my daily goals -- whether it's my food goals, exercise goals, or any challenge goals that I may be involved with ----- I need that progress chart in my face at all times!
sure makes sense --- so why would I ever have thought that I could get by w/o doing my "paper work" ------ how duh-duh-dumb of me to think that!
So I've been doing some "paper work" today and getting myself lined up for success once again ---- tomorrow is a new day and then it will soon be a new year ---- I want to get on board the train of winners and be the best loser I can be! duh! how complicated is that!?!?!?!
