If I'm going to get that black out on my Bingo Card for the BLC21 weekend challenge I've got to post my blog about what makes me Psycho about this weight loss journey. This question fits in with our Hitchcock theme for the week.
I think what frustrates me most at the moment is life! Life? Isn't that a broad and vague answer you ask. Well, what I'm referring to is how when in routine things can run quite smoothly and then life events, real life events, come along and the challenge to stay focussed takes even more effort. Sometimes that effort begins to feel like even more than I can muster for the day. Then, yes, I feel like I just need a break; a break from exercise, a break from menu planning, a break from making sure the kitchen is stocked with healthy food choices, a break from tracking, a break from ......But wait!!! I can't take a break. I know I can't take a break to come up for that breath of air. I know what will happen...I'm sure you even know what will happen. Take a break and I'll pick up those former habits so quickly and I've worked too hard to let myself go there. So I must follow the routine of healthy living despite what life throws my way. It's hard work. It's hard work even without the life events that come my way. Then I realize that if I can get through these life events that challenge me on my weight loss journey I can only be stronger to maintain this new life style for a lifetime. What makes me psycho is like a double edged sword: On the one hand it can frustrate me to no end but on the other hand it's what makes me better prepared and stronger for the journey I'm on for the rest of my life.
