I am super excited about your asparagus crop! I know that gardening in the spring can chase away the winter doldrums like nothing else can.
Thanks for the encouragement about my goals. I tend to be an “over-committer” and an “under-achiever” when it comes to goal setting. The perfectionist nature in me wants to do EVERYTHING right NOW and perfectly.
The reality, as I am learning it, is that changing my life and health is more of a slow and steady process.
Small goals seen to fruition over long amounts of time = PROGRESS
I was very tempted to write “= SUCCESS “ , but thought better of it. I am not sure if the word success indicates that there is an end to this getting healthy process. I think there may be a “PHASE 2 “ to my plan which leads to the STAYING healthy part of the program.
Truthfully, I’m not 100% clear on that. Seeing as this will be my first time getting there.
I did, however, complete most of my homework assignments. I took my measurements (yes… even the “redwood” thigh measurement), tracked my weight by weighing in at Weight Watchers, and developed a fitness plan. I even wrote a page of slight non-sense in my journal.
I’ve noticed that I am getting slightly anxious about my increasing need to multi-task lately. Balancing my 2 jobs, my family, and my health can be a slightly precarious dance of keeping all the balls in the air with equal importance and not letting any one of them drop. This is why I am trying to focus on my goals of developing a fitness and eating plan that will be rigid enough to keep me accountable, yet flexible enough to bend in the times of the unforeseen. All suggestions are WELCOME!
I am back to my lunch, my messy desk, and my computer. Multi-tasking at its best.
P.S. I lost 3.2 lbs this week!!
