One minute at a time
Monday, January 25, 2021
One day at a time has not been working. I am struggling minute by minute. I have had days where I plan, I have had days with out a plan. I know what I want, to hit onederland, but I am struggling with my focus to do this. So what do you do?
I am just going to look at today choice by choice. Possibly minute by minute. I am thinking about why. Why am I struggling?
Typically winter is warm sweater and layers. You can sneak food and it sneaks up on your hips and thighs and in New England you do not typically see that until you strip a layer in March or April. Then it is the day of reckoning when your lighter clothes do not fit. I threw all my loose clothes away and I am not buying big again.
Today is day one. Again, I know I am a record with a big scratch, repeating the same chorus over and over. The thought hit me. In the past I have struggled I have said forget it. Let a slip turn into a land slide. Stopped Sparking... This winter I have had good days and bad days and I have ended up staying in a 3 lb range. Still just 10 lbs from my next goal. I want to hit 69 lbs and be in the 100's it is so close that I can touch it. Seriously... Just do it! Nike is right.
Today I am going to mark hour by hour how I did. If at the end of the day I have 15 good hours and 1 bad hour... the day is not a loss is it? I am making way more good than bad choices. Weight loss is not a game of perfection. It is loving yourself enough to make more good decisions than bad and it is self LOVE.
I know that I can do this. I just have to embrace that I am worth it. My birthday is 50 days away. I have 10 lbs I want to lose by then. Goal set.
So with this goal set, lose 10 lbs, I am going to go forward with my plan. Move more, eat good clean food and love myself. Love myself enough to Spark because lets face it we are family. We all struggle the same struggles.
