moderation


Saturday, March 09, 2013

Moderation is the Spark Coach lesson for today. He esp wants us to think about not setting such a high expectation of perfection, that we get derailed. Well, I messed up so might as well give up for the day. Yeah, I've done that.

So, the assignment is to think of an area where we need moderation. And seriously, I cannot think of a thing. I'm really not a perfectionist, I used to be a bit of a one. But quite a long time ago, I've learned to "let God". I used to keep a postcard on my bathroom mirror, a cartoon of a penguin with his head in a fish...with the caption "In Control?" (or something like that)

I did have a loss this morning at Jennys. And I feel pretty good too. BUT I don't know how much a loss, this year, I've been keeping my back to the scale...so I will not be derailed by a number..but really consider 'other' things in this journey. And my energy level this week has been wonderful. Exercised all nights but one, and did avoid 'junk' food. Can't say my calories have been perfect...but doing better and learning. And trying to figure out those triggers, so I can have a plan.

    GOOD FOR YOU. LEARNING TO NOT CONTROL EVERY LITTLE THING IN MY LIFE IS THE MOST DIFFICULT THING FOR ME TO DO. ON THE BIG STUFF, I CAN "LET GO AND LET GOD" BUT ON THE LITTLE STUFF I STILL WANT TO DO IT ALL MYSELF.

    I was just talking with my husband about moderation in life and he thought if I used the word balance instead it might ring true with me. As I am pretty moderate in things but now balance is where I get messed up.
I had a cartoon that showed a person struggling to carry a bunch of small things all piled up with the caption... but I do let God do the Heavy Lifting.... emoticon emoticon emoticon
