Shlog 9: " Worry Wart"
Sunday, May 02, 2010
Today I have not been bothered by that "worry wart" fellow who sits on my shoulder and whispers nonsense to me. Some days I wonder if there will ever be a time that you don't worry about something. It tends to be a problem for me some days. My DH calls me a "worry wart".
The "worry wart" fellow has been known to cause sleepless nights, restless nights, short-temperedness (is that a word?), improper eating habits, pacing, day dreaming, and argumentative behavior just to name a few things!
For example, does a parent ever stop worrying about their children? I find myself, as I have aged, less equipped to handle the job of worrying. Worrying can cause me to be on edge. Lately the "worry wart" fellow makes me wonder if I am able to maintain my weight loss or not? I have been on edge about it this week. I feel it is causing me to want to eat too many bad things. I have been staying within my calorie range and exercising everyday, but I am still worrying.
I need to come up with a way to ease my fears and be less anxious. I could use some suggestions on how to go about doing that. Is my confidence slipping? I still feel like I am determined in my quest to be healthy, but fear that my worrying will make me slip up.
Well, those are my thoughts for today. One new goal I have set for myself is to work on writing more Shlogs! This is it for today. Enjoy your Sunday tomorrow everyone!
