massive failure!

Monday, June 03, 2013

I have just been failing and flailing at this whole weight loss/healthy life thing. The last two weeks have been terrible when it comes to food and work.

Basically, I've been anxiously eating and avoiding my work. The only good thing is that I've been hiking like a madwoman.

I am starting right now to face my fears and get sh*t done the way it needs to be done.

Obstacle #1 : put clothing on and shake the apathy out of my body!

I hope everyone is having a great day!

    Hey there! Sorry I didn't see your "flailing and failing" post because I can really identify with that and I know the feeling.

Sometimes when I'm flailing, I have to stop and ask why? What is causing this gap between what I want intellectually and what I seem to do emotionally? What am I using food and drink to compensate for?

With the VB6 approach, I am trying to focus my energies first on getting the "before 6" piece right. When I get that nailed, I'm moving on to focusing on making sure what I do after 6 doesn't plunge me down the wrong path.

CHange is hard. There is a great book called "Switch: Why Change is Hard and What to DO about it" and I am trying to put into practice some of what it talks about.

    You may be flailing, but you are not failing.

    Been there, done that. I know how hard it can be. But you haven't given up, you are still here and moving forward. Some days, it is an inch at a time. You will get there :)
