Me, Myself, And I

Tuesday, June 10, 2014

I have been going all up and down between 210 and 220 for months now. Making no progress and letting myself get more and more off course. There are 3 people I have to blame for this.

Me.

Myself.

I.

They act like they are my friends. They get me to trust them and then they STRIKE! They start slow.

"You know, you worked out really hard today. You deserve to splurge a little on your calories today. No big deal."

"How much is ONE extra scoop of ice cream/frozen yogurt really going to hurt?"

"You're tired and sore. Just relax and skip the workout today."

Of course I listen to their advice because I trust them and they only want what's best for me...Right?

NO! Because now they are telling me I should order an entire pizza for myself, quit working out all together, and to h*ll with losing weight, stretchy clothes are more comfortable!

They are poisoning everything, not just my weight loss mission but also the rest of my life too. My room is getting cluttered? So? Me, Myself, and I are telling me it is too hard a job to actually put the laundry in the basket they are sitting next to and to make my bed is simply ridiculously impossible.

Why should I sit down and focus on the projects I want to work on that will help me progress with the online venture I want to start? The television takes a lot less brain power and who wants to exert energy they don't have to?

You see? These friends of mine are not actually friends. They are the enemy in disguise. They love up to me and support me until I let my guard down and then they move in for the kill.

Well no more! I am not going to let those three stand in my way! I CAN say "no" to junk food and "yes" to working out! I CAN reorganize and get a handle on my home! I CAN move forward with my venture and succeed!

I am putting my foot down and blocking out their obnoxious voices. They are no longer my friends!

    This is SO me as well! Laziness/procrastination has always been such a bad habit my whole life. I guess that's why it's so hard for me to change it :D
    Sometimes I just have to kick myself in the butt and get going. My closet is waiting for me today (I've been avoiding organizing it for weeks!)
    You can do it! Say NO to that little voice in your head! There is another voice hidden behind it that loves to push and motivate!

    I've got the same friends whispering to me, espeically when it comes to housework and cooking. That's why a month after moving, we still have three rooms that are nothing by boxes!

    We can totally do this!
