I have three, probably soon to be four blogs. I have one through SparkPeople where I focus on weight and health related topics. I have another on blogspot that focused on crafting, DIY, and home/family related topics. I finally have another on LiveJournal that contains topics related to my personal spiritual work and internal reflections/gripes/praises. The last is the only one not open to the public, although I will accept friend requests.

I use all these mediums to track how I'm doing and where I am, and reflect back as I am able to notice patterns of thinking and activity. I use these as tools to help me pinpoint what works and burn what doesn't serve me any longer.

I actually started this a few months back and was going to try to keep going with it, but when I tried it last time, nobody bit, maybe I didn't allow for enough time, who knows, lol. Anyway, let's try this AGAIN!

Persistent Problems –

Whenever you notice a persistent problem in any aspect of your weight loss program—whether it’s related to food choices, exercise, or motivation—try to define the problem in writing.

What specifically are you doing (or not doing) that you need to change?
Why do you think this keeps happening?
What are the major triggers or causes of this problem?

Do this writing without thinking or worrying about being “correct” at first. Just write down whatever comes to you when you are thinking about the problem, and don’t worry about finding solutions at this point. Then, go over what you have written with a fine-toothed comb, looking at the language you used. Do those words make it sound like you’re in charge, or as if something else is in charge of you? Go back through the words you wrote, changing any passive verbs to active verbs ("My lunches are packed by my husband" becomes "I let my husband pack my lunches") and replacing any external forces with "I" statements (“It was too cold to walk outside today” becomes “I decided I didn’t want to walk in the cold today”). Once you have done this, go through your problem statement again and see what solutions come to mind.

Challenge came from the “Put the “I” Back into Your Vocabulary” article. Read the entire article before you do this challenge. www.sparkpeople.com/resource/
