Today I did it ZOMBIE STYLE .

Monday, June 24, 2013

I have this perfectionist attitude that is really becoming a problem , Now I don't expect others to be perfect but I expect myself to be , and although I don't often comment on others behavior I do get a bit whiny when they dont see how hard Im trying to please them ! And then I realized hey that's messed up ! If your trying hard to please someone and they arent * getting it * then dont punish them just try to please yourself and when you please yourself you end up pleasing others ! Happiness and self confidence are contagious !
Anyways thats kind of getting off topic so it seems but really I decided today , that I was going to try Just for today ! * I dont know when I will have a relapse !* not to try to be perfect for anyone else or myself . So I went in to Zombie Mode ! Other days I felt that if I didn't totally feel like exercising I was being a failure even if I exercised an hour a day ! and food lets not even go there , If I wasnt loving that cauliflower on my plate and looking at it with the same lust I have for cheese cake I felt like I am somehow weak .
I tend to over think things alot ! lol.
So today I said to myself .. Just dont think about if you want to exercise or not just do it , Dont ask yourself how your feeling , or if you think its good enough or what results you will get or how fast they will be just TUNE OUT AND DO IT !
Same with eating , I just tried to gauge how many calories to distribute for each meal plus snacks and didnt think about IF I LOVED THE FOOD or not ! Zombie style . Today that worked for me , To give my brain a rest from the overload of my over thinking things . I might continue to be a Zombie tomorrow it went so well today !

    Interesting thought! Yes, overthinking can lead to "paralysis by analysis" and feeling overwhelmed that things slow to a screeching halt. I have seen this in myself and in other Sparkers.
    It's fun/interesting to try on a new attitude. Occasionally, I pretend I am someone else that handles the situation well and ask myself........"How would so-and-so handle this? What would they do?"

    Don't know if you know this or not, but my husband and I own our own retail store, some of the things we sell include, but are not limited to zombie t--shirts, face masks, decals, posters, targets and patches! LOL I hope ZOMBIE MODE continues to work for you!

    I''m not a big fan of cauliflower either so I don't eat it, but there are other good vegetables. Glad you found a way to make it work for you.

    Aw, girl -- you don't have to love it! There are some things we do because we have that responsibility (get up, go to school, work, take care of kids) and some things we do because we know it's good for us (eat veggies, work out) and SOMETIMES -- not always, and not consistently -- do those things we have to do, or know we should do, end up being fun. I'll never look at a salad the way I look at crab legs -- ain't happening! But that makes it all the more special and meaningful when I get to eat crab legs. Does that make sense? Zombie Mode works for you -- go for it! Or do like Yoda would say -- don't think, just do. LOL! HUGS!!!! emoticon

    emoticon Lol...loved it! Good for you! ...Zombie mode, huh? I might need to try it. I'd have to be dead to put cauliflower anywhere neat my mouth. I fail majorly in the veggie dept.
    You, Kylie, are an insperation
