Blog challenge day 9

Friday, December 06, 2013

Day 9. What supports do you need in your life to help you reach your short- or medium-term goal or challenge? Do you have those supports? What undermines you in reaching your goals? How do you use those supports to your advantage? How do you work around those things that undermine you?

I haven't figured out yet how to work around those things that undermine me. I can stick with the healthier eating when I'm home, but as we have lots of invitations out to eat....I can't say no - I eat everything. Plus our past time here in this small town revolves around food or drink. There are restaurants and bars and nothing else. Now it is too cold to go out for a walk.

For my supports, I use my husband to complain to when I don't lose or tell him when I do lose and am happy. Also I like to talk to him to talk things thru.....for example, I have a particular problem and am looking for solutions. But after these 4 months, I think he is getting bored with this subject. I want to try to start a Before During After Journal that I just read about. Then I can disturb the journal and not bore it like my husband.

    I lived in a small town for 5 years and dealing with the restaurant issue is tough. I started inviting people to my house and I controlled the food. It was more work for me, but it helped.

    i use spark friends to have a vent when things aren't going well...

    I have decided not to use hubby as I have enough other things going on that I vent to him for....lol....and he doesn't always listen because he is tired of hearing most of it...

    Love the idea of your journal....I use one of them as well...
