So I was thinking about what I wrote the other day(my diet and all). It made me think about what level I'm engaged at. There are so many aspects of our lives but how involved am I. I can tell you right now that when I'm cleaning and/or scrubbing toilets my mind is off completely! When I'm with the kids, I've made it a conscious effort to be present. Every once in a while, Anna will start with the "then she said and then I said and then he said" stuff and I find it hard to stay tuned in. But I really do try with the kids. With the bills, all my little cylinders are firing. When I write my book, I'm all there and accounted for. I'm always so thrilled to be writing that it gets all of my attention. So, I was pretty pleased with myself until I thought about my diet. Yup, that is my down fall. I talk about it even complain about it but what am I doing to be engaged with it. I'm not involved with that aspect of my life. I'm talking, not doing. I need to switch on when it comes to putting food in my mouth. I seem to go somewhere else when it comes to eating. And this has got to stop. I'm going to rewrite the grocery list that should help to bring in more healthy meals. But I need to be present and paying attention to actually accomplish my weight loss goal. I'll keep you posted. Hopefully, posting my progress will keep me aware of what I'm doing and centered. Or maybe all of this analysis will push me over the edge and I will end up in the psych ward!
Thanks for stopping by,
