I have to say, I’m pretty friggin’ happy with myself for figuring out what I need to do to reach my goals. We all have weaknesses and I have my share BUT by being AWARE of what they are and how to circumvent them from impeding your progress is half the battle. Mine include:
My “All or Nothing” mindset – Lord Jesus help me with this one. I need to strive to move in a positive direction and not let myself be totally derailed by my perceived sense of failure. Progress, not perfection needs to be my mantra.
Sensitivity to criticism – I am working on learning to discern a well-intentioned critique from a passive-aggressive criticism. I’ll get back to you on that when I figure it out. Heh heh.
My coping with disappointment – I absolutely do not handle disappointment well at ALL. If I am looking forward to something and it does not happen or does not pan out the way I had hoped, it becomes a MAJOR binge – trigger. This needs SERIOUS work. Life is full of disappointments. I need to learn to be able to quickly “Get over it”. NOTE: any and all advice on how to do this is most welcome!
Making poor choices when thrown a curve ball – I know this about myself, so I need to always have a Plan B.
Hunger makes me STUPID – This is fairly easy to prepare for. I need to always have an emergency protein bar available just in case a meal is unexpectedly delayed. I get all “Betty White” when I am hungry and then I overeat. And I make bad nutritional choices.
Hope everyone has an awesome Tuesday tomorrow! Good Night!
