It's difficult for me to remain focused on my goal. I start to worry about a lot of other things that are beyond my control. Then I get stressed out and my meal plan gets thrown out of the window and I everyday becomes a cheat day. I'm trying to log in to Spark and read something or comment on something to keep my focus. It is physically more difficult to lose weight at 45 and mentally as well. I have two teenagers and they take turns worrying me half to death. My 14 year old son is doing miserably in school no matter what my husband and I do. I have him in one on one counseling and just signed him up for a group session. I meet with his counselor this week. So I get worked up over that. Then all of the natural disasters aren't helping. There are fires burning not far me and thousands of people are displaced. I'm worked up over that, but at least I know that I can donate locally to those effected (cleaning out my closet). I feel like Charlie Brown right now.
I'm going to go small today. I'm going to focus on today only. I will get my steps in. I will eat my prepacked meals at work. I will drink my water. I will pray for strength.
