Who's to blame?

Saturday, October 19, 2013

Ok so I haven't been sticking to my contract that I had made September 21. What is preventing me from achieving my goals? I could blame everyone else for bringing in candy to fill the jar in our department, I could blame the weather for being "too cold" to walk outside, I could blame school for "taking so much time" or work and my long commute, and I could blame my classmate/friend for us doing what she wants to do as far as studying, etc.

NO MORE! I am taking FULL responsibility for everything. I don't have to take candy from the jar, I don't stick to 1 piece anyway. I can put on another layer and "suck it up" and get my butt outside! I have to schedule time for workouts and planning of meals. I have to tell people NO! "I have this planned or I need to do ______________, but when I am done I can meet you."

I am to blame. I am responsible for my action or lack there of. There I said it! WHEW! emoticon I feel so much better! See, now matter the excuse, it will not help me achieve my goals!

So how will I conquer this? 1) Post my contract, EVERYWHERE! (LOL) Really, at my desk, in my car, on my binder for school, on my refrigerator, anywhere that I can see it and be reminded of it. 2) Write it in! Write my workouts in my planner. This way I am held responsible and can't back out. I will also write in meals. Ok this will be on the tracker, but if I plan ahead then I will not have to worry about what I am going to make for dinner and if I have officially gone over my calories, etc. 3) Call my friend Tracy and see if I can go to her when I feel like I just may go for that bag of chips that I didn't plan for.

Thanks for reading! Have a fabulous day! I will update on my progress next week! emoticon
