Week One - Wed
Wednesday, July 18, 2012
I started an 8 week challenge in the diabetes team, so paying some special attention to the present moment. I'm in week one, and it's Wed. That means I've been consistent, stuck with something positive for me for 4 whole days now. It may sound like I'm being sarcastic to myself, but I'm not. I'm recognizing achievement, and I want to encourage more achievements. I want to gain momentum, moving slowly right now, but moving ... in the right direction, and gaining momentum.
I've had a few self realizations lately, and perhaps I'll tell my life journey and understandings in later blogs. I used to be very consistent with journaling, spending mornings or evenings writing my thoughts and goals in some nicely bound journal. I haven't journaled all year, probably because I bought an iPad in January, and where has the time gone. Also, because looking back at years and decades of journals - I need to lose weight, I need to create good habits. I joined Weight Watchers, Nutrisystem, the local hospital weight loss program. Then a few weeks later, it is almost forgotten. I honestly couldn't bear to write one more this is it, I'm going to make changes physical journal.
So ... this is it, a blog. I'm going to make changes, I'm making good habits that will last a lifetime. I need to be accountable to someone for this, to myself. I need to take this seriously, not just wish I had made changes, or wish I was 50 pounds lighter, or didn't have to shop in the plus size section. Wishing has yet to make it come true.
