How many times are you allowed to "restart" before you realize you're never going to finish? Frustrated with myself lately, can you tell?
Jumped right in again earlier this week. Day 1: I've got my advantages list in my wallet and I read over it in my car before I come in to work. My big problem is usually the evening. I'm going to start trying to read my ARC and my planner in the car before I go in the house at night too. Day 2: I'm going to clean off my desk and start up fitday again on my home computer. I don't have internet at home right now, so fitday seems like my best recording option to be consistent. I'm also working with a version of the No S diet. Day 3: This is difficult. I did well Monday, until I got to my MIL to pick up DS in the evening and realized half way thru a cookie I was standing up. Spaced out about everything Beck related yesterday. Realized this morning as I was packing lunch that I was standing at the counter eating. Day 4: Good job realizing I was standing eating, even if it was a little late. Day 5: "Eat slowly and mindfully." Thinking about this today. Planning on doing it 'officially' starting tomorrow. Day 6: Throwing this one in the mix early too. I'm using this thread as my 'coach'. Anyone want to check in on me? Yes, I think a babysitter would be beneficial, but it's so hard to find someone willing to do it. Day 7: "Arrange your environment". Taking a few days to do this too while I'm practicing on my mindful eating/sitting. Need to dig out tupperware containers good for lunch packing. Also need to build up my 'healthy food stash' for quick lunches, breakfasts, and my car stash to help avoid fast food.
I think that will give me enough to think about and work on for a few days. Looking ahead for future planning...Day 8 is "Create Time and Energy" looking at scheduling and priorities. I want to work on this Sat, Sun, and Monday, cause my weekends and my weekdays are SO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. Day 9 is picking an exercise plan and Day 10 is set a realistic goal. I'll think about those this weekend and update later.
Glad to hear it. I am currently in a "slump" of not doing things the way I know would be better. So you are right. As long as you are willing to start again, it should work. I am hoping to get myself "ready" to start again. I believe I will do it soon.
Sparkfully Yours, Judi
