I think I may be on to something.

Saturday, August 22, 2009

Several of my recent blogs have been about my slow progress, lack of motivation, attempts to get back on track, yada, yada...

The other day, I got serious about trying to find an answer, knowing that it is within myself, somewhere. So I determined to focus on this, and I encourage my mind to focus by getting quiet and writing. Focusing always attracts something I need to help me, always.

Enter KATMOMMA3 and the 10,000 Steps Team challenge = more introspection. And a response from her containing the very words that may lead to my breakthrough; "Feeling complete when you're not really done yet."
This triggered a memory of a teacher telling my mother (imagine how many years ago this was) that once I learn something, I don't put any more effort into it. Apparently, in my mind, once I'm satisfied that I know HOW, I'm done.

All those years I thought I'd never be able to lose weight, to control my eating, to stop being a vegetable in front of the TV, then I learned HOW.
Ok, so now I need reprogramming.

    LOL...gotta love Katmomma! I'm not On the 10,000 steps a day team- but I usually average that per day when I look back at my weekly totals. May I suggest a pedometer?(if you don't already have one that is) They really do help motivate you to "go the extra mile" !
