I copied this section from a spark article that I read this morning. It was right on time.
100% success, 100% of the time. Is that what consistency means to you? If it is, you’re probably going to have a lot of trouble living up to this standard. A more realistic idea of the term might include the concept of two steps forward, one step back. In other words, as you progress towards your goal, even if you have a slip-up here and there, you are still well on your way. Room for an occasional failure is built right into this ideology.
Yes I am the one looking for 100% success 100% of the time. Yes I know better but there is still something deep down that wants to hold on to that which ultimately trips me up into not doing anything. I am conquering that mindset and persevering towards success
Today I got up and fixed myself my weekend breakfast. Today it was eggs bacon and toast with OJ and coffee. Looked out my window and allowed all the challenges of yesterday blow away in the wind. And TODAY I stopped eating when I was full. I left a piece of toast and 1/3 of the bacon on the plate.
Yes!!!!! For me that means I was conscious of what was going on in my body.
Here are the areas that I want to be consistent in
Water min 6 glasses daily
Exercise min 3x/week
Vitamins min 5 days/week
Meditation/prayer/reading min 5 days/week
Maintaining my room/bathroom min 6 days/week
No I did not include tracking food. My goal is to stop eating when I am full. I find that when I plan a meal I am so locked into getting all the nutritional requirements in that I keep eating despite the fact that I am full because I need to get all of the food in me in order to meat the nutritional needs. (yeah I know that is that perfectionist in me)
