The Mistakes I am making.

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

Hello sp friends. I felt the need to look at the things I am doing wrong because I haven't had as much success as I'd like to when it comes to my weight. I am still learning a lot from sp but I believe that I cannot be fully successful if I don't acknowledge the errors that are stunting my progress.

emoticon I let the scale determine how my day will go. I weigh myself everyday even though I know I didn't workout or I feel bloated or heavier. Then I allow the numbers to get me down.

emoticonI don't stick to drinking enough water because I always feel heavier so I don't give it a chance to actually work.

emoticonI go online to sp and get so wrapped up in everything I am reading and then I realize that I have a lot of things to do so I don't have time to actually put all that I have learned to the test.

emoticon emoticon I allow my fears to stop me from doing more strength training. I am fearful of pain due to a right shoulder rotator cuff issue, pain due to fibromyalgia and fear that I can't do enough.

emoticon I don't spend enough quality time with my husband because I don't like the way I look on the outside.

emoticonI forget how caring , giving, and understanding my heart is when it comes to ME. I tend to care more for others' feelings and I don't nourish my own well-being.

emoticonI give in to all the negativity in my life when I feel like I am not making progress in my new journey. If I did something I think is not helpful then I feel that I am a failure in all areas of my life.

emoticonI know that a lifestyle change takes time but I lose patience with myself

emoticonI don't take time to just stop and enjoy the many wonderful things that life has to offer. I am always on the go both mentally and emotionally.

emoticon I don't spend enough time with my twin sister. I take her for granted.

emoticon emoticonI allow fear and worry to overcome my progress. I fear failure, yet again and this hinders my success. I fear many things but mostly failure.

I have learned that I have made many mistakes that have led me to where I am but I am trying to correct these mistakes one step at a time. I wanted to give my mistakes a blog so that I have a reference guide. I will read them everyday and also correct as many as I can on a daily basis. I vow to learn to love myself more in the process so that I will reverse the damage I have done.

I hope that this blog can help you find the mistakes you are making and give love yourself while you learn to overcome them. emoticon emoticon

    Putting down your mistakes and referring to them is helpful for some. Is it necessary to step on the scale every day, especially when you know there more than likely won't be a drastic change every day or week? It has taken all of us a while to get to where we are, changes do not come easy, you must keep working and changes in the scale will come. It might be helpfull to also list all you and thankful for and identify the changes you have made or are working on.
