Been asking myself WHY these last 6 months have been so difficult, progress-wise. What changed??
When I read a post from Diana, at Diana's Weight Loss Journey I think I found part of the answer.
Nothing exotic or earth-shattering. Just a simple lack of focus.
center of attention
pay particular attention to
the center of interest of activity
the act of concentrating on something
This last summer, I had been blogging for 1 year. I wanted to shift from writing ABOUT life, to living life. I was spending soooo much time blogging, I had no time to DO the stuff I was losing the weight in order to do!
So... brilliant tactician that I am, I decided to blog less and live more. Great plan, right??
Except that I lost some of my focus when I did that. I haven't learned how to keep totally on track, the balance. One main reason, noted in my sidebar, for starting my blog in the first place was to keep me FOCUSED!!
But the blogging is a tool. It can't become a substitute for life! I need to learn to live a focused life, and DO the healthy stuff out of routine. To live my life in a healthy way, and not be distracted. Not use being busy with the LIVING part as an excuse to neglect the HEALTHY stuff.
This in not an either/or deal. I need both. I need the focus, but I need the LIFE!
So... that is what I want to learn. I guess I got ahead of myself, thinking I had this Focus thing down, when I obviously did NOT.
Back to focusing on Focus, and learning that balance!
From Dr Phil's book: "To change your weight, to achieve permanent weight loss, you have to be totally, consciously in charge of yourself and everything you do, think and feel... use that control to create the healthy "you" that you deserve to be and have."
My verse for today: "Give thanks to the God of heaven. His love endures forever."
