Coloring outside the lines!
Wednesday, September 15, 2010
So, I've been stuck in a rut and getting frustrated....and I decided to have a long talk with myself.
I agreed last week to start tracking my food/water intake again (since this helped me lose 35 pounds), and you know what, I stopped, why? Because I didn't want to enter what I had ate that wasn't good for me....and so while I was having this talk with myself....I realized something!
I know that when I colored pictures when I was younger and now sometimes with the little one....if I get a smidge outside of the line....I tear out the page, rip it apart and throw it away. And I can remember my Mom and brother asking me what the big deal was....."it isn't perfect" would be my response. They would start looking and ask what was wrong with the picture and I would show them where I could see "blue" outside of the line.....and they would just "pffffft" me!
So with this situation I find myself in (in a weird way) they are definitely similar. Apparently, I have the same attitude towards tracking as I do towards coloring.....if it isn't perfect....I don't finish it!!!
So dang it....this is a personality defect of mine....and I am choosing to deal with it....head on!! No more of this tracking only if I did my intake perfectly.......Where are those crayons?
