What's happening in my crazy brain?

Wednesday, October 26, 2011

Do you ever feel, in your weight loss journey, that your consciousness tells you one thing and your unconsciousness runs around behind you yelling "Hey don't do that, that's crazy! Just sit back on the couch and relax"

My unconsciousness and I have a real debate going lately. I feel motivated and ready to do anything, my day starts out great then, I don't know what happens. I get busy doing something and this brain of mine says "oh, wouldn't it be nice if we could go play Sims RIGHT NOW!!!!" and forgive the analogy but like a cow to the slaughter off I go playing Sims completely for getting what I'm doing.

Seems my brain needs to learn who is in charge. I guess I will have to send it back to kindergarten to learn how to play nice, In the mean time I will try to come up with some productive things to keep my hands from being Idle and my Sims where they belong - in cyberspace.

    That is true for me as well! Keeping me going is hard. Especially when I get on the computer. This may sound corny but I used to set my kitchen timer for 30 minutes and when the beep went off, I had to get off the computer. Almost making a deal with my brain, I will let you play but afterwards you have to get up and do something!

    Don't quit! You can do this and you will!!

    Yes! All month, I've been struggling with knowing and doing the right thing. emoticon

    I've spent so much time berating myself for overeating in the evenings that I failed to realize that I've had a net loss of 4 pounds this month.

    So, hopefully, the positive things you do for yourself are outweighing the negative.
