Challenged to a 14 Day Streak
Thursday, March 20, 2014
Steph-knee wrote a blog about starting a 14 day streak and challenged her readers to join her. I've decided to join her, too. From March 18 to March 31, I will walk every day and will go out to eat only twice. So far, so good! I like the idea of short term challenges, because I can try out new ideas or get back to better habits without becoming obsessive.
I did great through the holidays, but then I fell apart. Am I afraid of change, failure, or success? Am I punishing myself by continuing down the wrong path? What? Why do I sabotage myself? I DON'T KNOW! Okay, maybe I do. I know that allowing myself to become obsessive is a dangerous thing because I begin to feel trapped and then I rebel.
Many people view this as a battle. It's what keeps them motivated. I found that I have to come at it from another angle: Acceptance. This is what I do now, This is where I need to be. This is who I am now.
So I continue to work at finding my balance--both mentally and physically. A balance between getting enough sleep, exercising, and healthy, mindful eating.
I'm enjoying the 14 day streak idea. Hey, you can do anything for two weeks, right?
