Can I be both?

Tuesday, May 21, 2019

Can i be both the determined woman who doesn't hit the snooze button at 5:35 AM and goes to her workout group in the morning, and also be the person who takes a bath with wine and then blows her diet at 10 PM?

Well, the answer is a resounding yes. Just happened.

But it makes me feel a bit confused. I'm used to being all or nothing. One way or the other. On point with fitness, having a goal, training for something, being 100% sober for over a year, going to Weight Watchers meetings or...binge eating, going out with friends, netflix-watching, staying up late, and not giving a F%&*, a more relaxed vibe.

And so, I'm left wondering for about the millionth time in my life...where is the middle ground? I'm searching for it, but it is so elusive and nebulous - a tightrope walk I cannot find. So i just hop back and forth across it.

I don't know any other way to be. Time to see if I can figure it out.

    You can figure this out. It's actually not a tightrope walk. When you discover flexibility, you will find that it's a path that leads toward achieving your goal. It's simply the place that takes you where you want to go. We're just not perfect - not any of us. So we whoops from time to time. The key is to troubleshoot the whoopses and plan for success. It's about being mindful and aware and inquisitive (why did I do that?) and accountable to ourselves. If we trip up one moment, we must get back on our feet in the next moment. If we're accountable to ourselves, we don't permit wallowing because it's unproductive and doesn't help us toward our goal. Gotta get up, dust off and move on! emoticon

    I can relate. Start off the day w/ good intentions then b4 u know it, something triggers a deviation from plan. Shows we are human not perfect. Look at your journal & ck 4 clues. Stressors require strategy. Plan fun snacks as substitutes & see.
