I'm going to get serious about losing weight....really I am. I'm just waiting for Halloween to be over with, or after we have those friends over for dinner one night. OH and I do plan on getting back to the gym, but that maybe put on hold until after all the holidays are over and done with. Does any of this sound familiar? Now don't get alarmed, I'm just play acting here, but yes I have been known to say and do these very things as I am so very sure some of you out there are just as guilty.
Putting things off or procrastination can undo the best of intentions. We have everything lined up just waiting for everything to be in the right place, the right time to get serious. Procrastination is a very vicious cycle.
"I'll do this!" becomes "I really meant to do this; I'll start tomorrow for sure. Before we know it, today has turned into tomorrow; and all those tomorrows have added up and turned into many weeks and months, sometimes even years if we are not careful. And we've made no progress. We are exactly where we have always been, waiting for the right time to start.
WE can stop this cycle by taking actions. All we have to do is make a start instead of making excuses. Take some baby steps, start by just tracking, it does not have to be putting down your points, but just start by writing down what you are eating throughout the day. We don't even have to invest in a gym membership, we have places to walk and if taking a long walk seems to much, then just park a little further away in the parking lot.
The more we push against procrastination, the easier it will be to break the cycle and move forward. And what faster way to get to our goals. SO START TODAY!!!!!!!!
Make it a GREAT day.
Hugs to all,
"Just don't give up trying to do what you really want to do!"
