Weekly Focus is not yet in Focus...

Monday, January 13, 2020

So WEEK ONE I had grand plans to clean the kitchen. Nope. Nada. I did barely anything. IT IS STILL A MESS!

WEEK TWO the focus was to eliminate extraneous sugar and treats from my diet. Nope. Nada. I barely did anything. I did note when I tripped up and how I might do better in my notes on my nutrition pages. Being aware of the ways I give in to temptation seems like good info to know. Now if I could just stop and think before I eat things...

I did however get my nose fixed. No big nose bleeds in about a week.

I blew out a vein and some tissue in one very big sneeze. Popped something out of place that was fixed before. And after 14 pretty bad nose bleeds I got into my surgeon and he fixed it. I have no frontal sinus and my nose has been broken two times we know of. I have had several nose surgeries over the years. This is not anything new to me. Just a nuisance really.

I was able to get it fixed this time in the office under a local anesthetic. I still am a bit sore, but it has only been 6 days. I rested as much as possible after the procedure to get over it and heal. But I only took off an afternoon last week for it.

Now WEEK THREE is drinking water - 8 to 10 glasses a day. Today I have only had three glasses. I better get after it when I get home!

So, the plan has been to do something toward my goals of being healthier and focusing on one each week of the year. So far, I have not kept that promise to myself. Nope. Nada.

Let's see if I get better this week and catch up from my previous challenges that I tripped up on.

Working on not beating myself up over it.

    But you got the surgery done! Even if that didn't seem like a big deal, that is the kind of thing that can really dominate a week. I feel like we expect too much change from ourselves too quickly sometimes. When we try to change just one thing we may find out why we hadn't done that before. Maybe there were reasons why it was not possible to change before and our attempt shows us something else needs to be shifted before we can make that change. It's all learning. It's great you blogged about it.

    Don’t give up. If the plans not working change the plan not the goal. Maybe choose one change or project then choice another after that is done.

    I'm no expert, but I read a SparkPeople article tonight about why people don't keep resolutions. It might be helpful to take it in smaller steps. Like, clean just one small area of your kitchen each day, or replace just one sugary snack with a fruit each day, or switch one soda a day to a glass or bottle of water. It's just a thought. Keep on keeping on - you'll get there!!!

    You get there as long as you do not give up.
