Baby Steps Experiment

Friday, July 12, 2013

Ok. This "All-or-Nothing Annie" is trying out this foreign concept of "baby steps". I cannot describe to you vividly enough how my insides scream defiantly that "this won't do any good", & "that's not good enough"!

Simultaneously the thought pops into my head - the realization - that I have often cheered YOU all on for making baby steps! Double standard indeed! Is not what's good for the goose, good for the gander? I am embarrassed to admit that.

Exercise. My Achilles' Heel. As a skinny person for most of my life, exercise wasn't on my agenda. Now that it appears it HAS to be put on my agenda, I struggle. I rage! Kind of like the 5 stages of grief, in a way. I do everything the hard way.

I realized Plan B was required a couple of weeks ago. Plan A wasn't sustainable. Guess what? I still don't have a Plan B. Not going to make one, either. Baby steps for the next little while.

So, yesterday I was very busy on this site. emoticon Yesterday I ate VERY well and tracked it all. emoticon I stayed within my calorie range. emoticon .

Today is a beautifully sunny, July day. I am going to go outside for a walk today. emoticon Baby steps.

    Excuse the euphamism, but but noone was ever got anywhere quickly by biting off more than they could chew. We all make big changes by taking small steps, you can do this. If you have Sparkpeople, you have the tools to do the right thing.

    You sound a lot like me! I rarely take the advice I give to others. And I'm right there with ya with the "baby steps not being enough!" BUT everyone can learn something new. Much luck to you!
