duh moment!

Thursday, December 27, 2012

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!?!?!?!

    Hey Jane, Wherever did you find this picture of me. Don't beat yourself up over the food journal. It happens to everybody. You will get right back with it. emoticon

    The holidays are hard for everyone. I have been a little sloppy with my habits too. Not enough to break my streak, but pretty darned close! I need to get back to being FIRM with myself. I know what I need to do, I just need to do it. We can do it Jane!

    Oh yeah, that look sums it all up, doesn't it!

I have been in maintenance going on 2 yrs. in January and I STILL have to track, weigh and measure otherwise everything goes to heck in a handbasket! So, you're not alone! Keep doing what works.

    You can do it! It's hard around the holidays. I think most of us lose sight of what we need to do. The good news is, it's a new day, with a fresh start and we can do this! :) HUGS!
