So on day 1 I blogged about the necessity of preparation before action and I was committing the final days of July to gearing up for Action August. Today is day 3 and I'm pleased for the most part. I'm making better decisions but not expecting perfection or rigidity. Because of my decent progress I considered logging my food and nutrition today. However, I contemplated the stages of change and my initial focus and commitment on Monday and went with the odd decision to not log until Aug 1. At the end of the day I have no regrets. It was the right decision. I really think it is so easy to get caught up in full speed ahead, never doing enough, and perfection thinking. I am making progress. That is enough and I'm not setting myself up to burnout. I can do all the exercise and be attentive to nutrition all I want in these last days of July but I'm not initiating logging until Aug 1. I give myself permission to ease into it and not need to be hypervigilant out of the gate. I honestly think taking this time will make me more successful. Preparation, I welcome you. I prefer to set myself up for success then fly full force into failure.
