Catch up, caught up and moving forward for the travelers

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

So yesterday was whirlwind for me lots to do and yes you guessed it I didnt do half of what i should have done . So In trying to catch up today on my Challenge just because it is important to me and I dont want anyone to think that is different . Now let me say for the record right now that tomorrow is going to be just liked yesterday ... So we are going to travel in the past, present and the future for this blog ... I realize that i will not get points for yesterday or tomorrow but that is fine at this point as i can not say I can write tomorrow.

Day to day that is number 4 on our blog series ... well day to day I have done well with writing what I need to track on here so that counts . it is accurate information it just isnt keyed yet . Accuracy is the one thing that is important to me how much of everything is the ticket . I want to know what i am eating and how much so i can better understand where my problems are .

Number 5 is what can I improve on ? Planning for the unexpected or the expected that i know is coming up . Like tomorrow i already know this is going to be a busy bad day .. so tonight I will input everything for that day also . then I cant beat myself up late tomorrow because I dont feel like putting it in . If i can make the list while doing it then I can certainly plan in advance for it . I feel that if i can get this done then I have accomplished two things . One I already have my food tracked and two I removed the ability to beat myself up or give me an excuse to stop till next week.

Day six is do you need Motivation or advice ? Now this is a tough one . I certainly don't turn down either of them . Motivation well that comes in many forms from many people . Sometimes that note that says I thought about is motivational enough to keep on . Sometimes it is my son saying Mom look and he will show me something that he has found on his body. For those of you who dont know Between me and my son we have lost almost 200 pounds . We talk everyday about what we did what we are going to do and what we wont do again . I am so proud of him he really took a bad situation and made it work for him . Back to the answer lol i could talk all night about him . For years I waited for people to tell me I could do this , to notice things about me that had changed and then fell of the wagon when they didnt , so when I decided to change my life and mindset I stopped waiting for them to notice . I relish everyday finding something new or uncovered on this body. and I really mean every day It might be a new bone or a new muscle or maybe is that well those pants i waited five years to wear I cant wear now because they are to big . When I want to know something then I ask but I cant just take your word for it I have to know why it is that way . that is how my brain works . but lots of times what someone says lets me find the right question to get the answer I need. Life is funny in that you really dont ask will the flowers bloom you just know it will so have the same faith in your self everyday , you will bloom if you take care of yourself in the same manner.

    Well Miss Tink, you certainly know how to get caught up! That was a whirlwind blog and I admire your focus. Nice to hear about your son, that is so cool that you and he are doing this together. You'll get through tomorrow just fine, just use the same focus you used on this blog.


Go Casual Travelers! emoticon
