Starting over and over and over

Friday, July 22, 2011

So I have a confession to make. I have been a bad girl. I take that back. I haven't been bad just obsessive. I don't know what it's been the past few weeks but I feel this deep sense of shame and I can't even put a finger on why or where it comes from. I do know that it has really stopped me from doing the things that I not only need to do but that I like to do.
This stops today. Today I vow to start over. And start small. I have a clear, concise plan for today and I mean to accomplish my goals. Here starts Day 1:
For Friday, June 22nd, 2011 my goals are:
1. To accomplish the items I need to get done at work:
a. Finish network maps for my home store site
b. Finish my switch renaming project
c. Put out my hot spare BSV status
2. Exercise. Today is Chalean Extreme Push Circuit 2
3. Begin planning my meals for next week. This includes:
a. Writing down my meal plan for the next 7 days
b. Completing a shopping list for the next 7 days
4. I am not going to mentally beat myself up anymore. To help me I am going to:
a. Find 1 inspirational quote a day
b. Create or find a positive affirmation, a mantra for the day. Today's mantra is: I deserve to be fit and healthy. The steps I take today lead me into a healthier body tomorrow. (OK it's kind of long but it does the trick)
c. Write my positive affirmation 15 times and post it someplace I will see it. Write means with a pen & paper, not typing on the computer.

I shared these goals with my accountability partner and now I am sharing with the rest of the Spark Universe (well, those interested enough to read it anyway.) There's only up from here!!

    It can be really hard, that feeling that you're starting over... but it's also refreshing.

    And it doesn't matter how often you fall, as long as you keep getting up. :)

    Way to go! You have a lot on your plate for today. Go for it. It is always a great idea to have a "game plan" for each day. You can be more productive when you know what you need to accomplish and do not get sidetracked by other things. Schedule those other items for future days so you do not have to worry about them. I like the meal plan idea. I have found that splitting the week in two is easier for me to plan and shop. When I was shopping for a whole week some items would be going bad by the time I planned on eating it. Going twice a week eliminated that and my overall meal planning and grocery shopping trips take less time. emoticon

    I have been consistently exercising and eating better for the last 5 weeks. My weight loss has been slow, but I don't plan on giving up. Seems some days my weight is down and back up the next day. This can be depressing, but I know if I stick with it I will reach my goal. Just don't give up!
