Looking back -
Tuesday, April 05, 2016
Today I should be blogging about Day 35, but instead of moving forward I feel the need to look back at the first 34 days. I have been struggling for a few weeks now and even though I understand what I need to do, and even though I get up each morning feeling positive that this day will be my day to be successful, I am not succeeding. Trying to move forward to the next day's lesson is adding another layer of stress right now and it is not helping. So for a while I am going to concentrate on perfecting the first 34 days - eating healthy, getting my exercise minutes up, and finding "my joy" which seems to have missing lately. So for now I will go back to remind myself "I use to be that way, but I am different now" and "I am committed" to weight loss, or "I'll eat it latter" and so forth until I am able to manage the skills before moving forward. And - as Linda Spangle says that is okay. I won't need to start over when I'm ready to move forward. I will just pick up my book, turn to day 35, and continue on my journey.
