Apparently, my last couple of days saw me going a bit crazy. These things do happen, periodically. ;-) I'm still feeling a little psychotic right now. The fact that Shiva-Kitty insists on climbing my shoulder and wallowing on me when I'm trying to work doesn't bode well for her safety. But that's just empty venting-threats and cat-flinging...
After taking a couple days to think about what's "wrong" with my Health Overhaul plan and, ultimately, myself, I realized that my current stress level is competing with my resolve to do things. Shutting down doesn't accomplish much, and I'm going to cultivate a less whiny attitude for times when I don't meet goals. Thanks to Rebekah and Angela, who saw through my sarcasm into my frustrated panic, I think I know how to deal with my inner critic. :)
Things that I know: Lifestyle changes don't happen in just 13 days. 91 pounds of weight loss needs to be broken down into increments that I can achieve in the short term. My attitude is directly related to and interchangeable with my success. *deep breath and sigh* And... repeat! :)
GOAL: To view my progress and process in a positive light and take a long break from beating myself up.
