I have always been an over-achiever . . . .give me a TO DO list, and I'll get it done. But when it comes to self-care, I just don't take time to do it. I am overly critical of myself and usually put myself at the end of the list . . . .which means "I" don't get 'done'.
That's one of the reasons I needed a few days away from SparkPeople. Not that I want to splurge or binge or anything . . . I just want to see how much of the the daily TO DO list is really making it's way into my brain and into my life, rather than being a quest for the points or whatever.
It's taken a few days, but I am definitely liking the direction and progress I'm making into really taking care of ME. After all, that's what this journey is all about. And by the way, this morning I was at my lowest weight since joining SparkPeople!
I'm working on slowing down and staying in touch with myself, and making sure that I'm making decisions for the right reason.
Another thing I'm focusing on is getting some quality time with myself each day which includes dialing the world OUT and giving myself a 5 minute NON INTERRUPTED pep talk.
That's just where I'm at right now.
Each of us have to find out what works for you. Do whatever it takes to OWN it and make it happen for you. You are worth it.
