Goals - ugh. I always have goals but they are always general, you know lose weight, stabilize blood sugar, start exercising, get a life. Specifics are always difficult because I am always changing my mind about how I can get these goals accomplished.

I am reading "The Amen Solution" by Daniel Amen which is about how to program your mind and get it healthier. I'm at the age now (69 the other day) were my mind is starting to show the holes in it especially with the loss of some of my memories of words. I know the word but what was it? The goal list in that book is divided in categories, or as he calls it "pillars" biological, psychological, social, and spiritual. Each group has a subcategory: Biological includes brain health, physical health, eating, weight, exercise; Psychological includes emotion, thinking pattern Social includes relationships children support and work/money, and spiritual includes, passions , spirituality, meaning. Right now this all seems rather daunting and I don't know if I will do any of it but I will start with one. I have found that the Japanese psychological therapy that is based on the "do one thing" is the one that works the best for me in the long run. Like all weight loss minded people I am used to starting something and not finishing it because well you know LIFE!!!! emoticon

    When I have too much plannedI tend to stall. Some days are just a mess. If I slow down, it gets done. One step at a time.
