DAY 7: Beyond the World of Weight

Wednesday, January 07, 2015

Today I am thinking about issues in the rest of my world beyond exercise and weight control. These seem pretty well under control at the moment. On the other hand, there are many other parts of my life that I have let get a bit out of control. I can be a bit of a procrastinator with things. Even when something would just take 10 minutes to take care of, I can leave it on my to do list for weeks. I have several projects at work that need my attention and I am going to end up cutting it close to get them done. I am not sure why I do this. I seem to need the pressure of a looming deadline to make me focus, but then I have to live with the unfinished task hanging over my head. It doesn't quite make sense to me. Tomorrow I am headed back home after holiday travel and Monday the new semester will start. I have gotten some projects done over my break but I am nowhere near where I could have been if I had just buckled down a little more. Oh well. I can't go back now. Just forward! I've lived liked this forever but maybe now that I am stable with my weight issues, I should try to attack some other problems in my life. Maybe I need to try 10 minutes a day on a project I am avoiding!

    I can't take the stress of procrastination. I'm on it as soon as I can. I've even started knitting for Christmas. You can do it!

    Procrastination! That is one of my biggest faults! Thanks to you, I have finally activated my Spark activity tracker, and I already have some steps logged.

    I will be praying for you to have success in battling this problem. It is a tough one! Maybe checking in on this topic on your blog will help.
