Yep, that's what I have, alright. Focus, or in my case, lack thereof is becoming a bit of an obstacle to my ultimate success. I seem to have lost sight of the big picture and have dialed in on just the weight loss portion of my journey. Today was Weigh In Wednesday, and I was struck by the emphasis I put on getting on the scale this morning. No change, so that was ok, I guess. However, in the larger sense, I became annoyed with myself at being so dependent on what my scale shouted back at me.
After a frank discussion with myself. (And yes, I did answer myself back.) I have decided to return to the basic premise that brought me to the blogosphere.....better OVERALL health. I've been slipping a little in that department lately. My meal prep and planning has not been nearly as good as it was a month or two ago. The Dinner Challenge I issued to the Perfect Child has kinda gone belly up, so I became a bit lax. Lack of Focus at its finest. I still have all of the "tools" necessary for success, I've just been ignoring them, I guess.
So, after my re-evaluation of the situation, I have decided to start all over again. I'm starting with today's weight and going forward with renewed vigor. I am confident that if I put this new beginning out here in the blogosphere, you will all help me remain accountable. So starting today, it is back to the basics. I'm going to re-focus and remove the "blockage" that has my concentration constipated. I think if I can remain on track at least 75% of the time each week, I'll be back to where I want to be. 75% , you say, is not much....however, if you're regaining focus a little at a time, 75% is a good starting point. Maybe it is a low expectation kinda thing, but at least it is something, and I have to re-start somewhere. :) I know there will be slip ups, so I am allowing myself an "oops" now and then. No recriminations, just get my butt back in gear. I hope this approach proves successful. If it does, I'll up the percentage to 90% eventually, then up to 100% !!! I will be a work in progress.
