Well, I lost mine yesterday but not for the long haul. I have been thinking about focus for a while in lots of areas. I am coming to realize that for me it is a huge part of getting there.
My friend in person and my friends here are part of maintaining my focus. So is knowing I have to log the food and exercise. My journal helps me to deal with the lack of focus sometimes. I am adding another thing or two.
The first one is easy. I took a picture frame and have begun to add not only pictures but words to remind me what I want and need. Visual reminders help me. So someone nudge me toward the middle of the week and I will try and take a picture of my collage and post it.
The 2nd is something I have done before but not quite in this manner. I am going to try meditation to help me maintain that focus and reduce the stress. I will show back up to talk about this again I am sure.
I simply know that for me, if the goal is not in focus, I manage to screw it up. I am not talking about weighing 150 pounds. I may or may not reach that goal. I am talking about eating correctly and moving every day. The goal, the long term goal, is to be healthy. If I die at 85, I want to be on that walk with my camera, not sitting in a chair waiting to die.
