.....too bad my body is more like a turtle!! I have never been diagnosed with ADD but I think I know how my son and husband feel. I cannot focus on one thing for longer than 2 minutes! Bridal shower today, baptism tomorrow. Planning and prep for both of those finally done. Rehearsal dinner invites, menu, etc. coming up. Arrangements for family from out of town and scheduling all that needs to be done before then. Vacation at lake the following week. We've never done this before so trying to make arrangements and think of all that needs to be ready (especially since it's right after the wedding and some family will still be here for a couple of days!) OK, in addition to this, my "regular" stressors and things that need to be done that are not getting done. I think I look at the big picture, get overwhelmed and do something totally not meaningful (browse the internet, anyone?) I am having a terrible time organizing and prioritizing my lists. That is not like me at all. Age??
I am definitely back on track with exercise though!! YAY!! The eating is improving also and I am staying in calorie allotment (middle or low). YAY! I am feeling better physically which may help my mindset (eventually). I'm tracking both and I know that if I keep at it it will get easier and more routine for me.
I have started reading The Four Day Win by Martha Beck. I have always liked her writing and her life philosophy. This book is VERY interesting and what she says makes sense. It's a lot of what we hear on Spark---love yourself at every weight. She goes into a little more depth regarding training the brain and offers exercises to help you shift your perceptions. It makes so much sense to me. Right now I'm reading through to get the jist and will then go back and do exercises, etc. (She encourages this). I will let you know how it goes. It's fine to read the book and agree with what you read but the follow through can be a killer.
Has anyone else read this book?? I would be interested in hearing your thoughts.
