No Excuses

Only dropped a pound this week. I guess I need to re-focus my effort. I realize I'm responsible to keep it up but I sure wish Sharon would help with my resolve.

Full Sack

I was afraid I wouldn't make weigh-in this week but was pleasantly surprised to find I'd lost 3.2 lbs. For perspective imagine carrying around a sack full of pennies. 3.2 pounds is about $5.80 worth of pennies. That's 11 1/2 rolls of pennies. Sure hope I can continue this progress.

Props to Mark Redmond

I'm sure you all read his blog, but in case you don't you should. Follow the link. Great three part post on the "P" word.

What a difference a day makes

Turns out That light at the end of the tunnel wasn't an oncoming train after all. I composed an email in my funk that a day later I'm glad I hadn't sent.
Remember that even if you're on the right track, you'll eventually get run over if you just sit there.
My head is in a better place today. I apologise for sharing the funk I found myself in.

Thought vs. Action.

The diet has tapered off a bit... We skipped weigh-in last week and this week I still hadn't quite lost two pounds. Sharon has said she will extend me some grace.

The following is a partial post I started weeks ago but never finished. I'm publising it now as its advice I need to give myself. I'm in an ebb time and can't seem t dig myself out.

...I'm skeptical of all the self improvement gurus who tout that we must visualize what we want in order to achieve it. That's a load of bull. That's not to say that we shouldn't set goals or have an optimistic outlook. But, if you want something your going to have to stop visualizing it and go earn it.

Here is another golden nugget from subservient-husband that we could live by: I can not think my way into good actions, but I can act my way into good thinking. Doing something submissive often ends up correcting my thinking instead of stewing in a bad place mentally.

When I start to think my way into a funk Its time to act... Not Stew!!! And remember It could always be worse.
