Lately things have changed for me. I am stuck. I am spinning my wheels. I just am not moving forward. Frustration has replaced my "I can do it" attitude. Why, why, why? I tried a few new things to get the ball rolling and I kept ending up in the same place. THEN... My A-HA moment (yes, I admit watching Oprah from time to time) came to me while I was sitting in a small business class. The instructor, a very gruff older man, was repeating the phrase "you MUST have a plan, YOU MUST HAVE A PLAN!". Then the light came shining down, harps were playing, and I got it. I need a plan.
You must being thinking....NO SHIT SHERLOCK, who the hell doesn't know that???!!! So I am a slow one and and as I mentioned I learn things the hard way. Ha! Planning is one of those things that I just don't get. Even the word kind of makes me break out into hives. When I do have one, I follow for a bit then it all falls apart if there is a change.
Why the Oprah-like post today? Well......my last weigh in at WW was not pretty. I stepped on and gasped in horror!!!!!!! Not only had I gained, I am OVER my starting Weight Watchers weight. My little C25K workouts were not match for the Halloween candy. Needless to say that this is not the direction I want to go.
What IS my plan? My PLAN for today is to make a PLAN to make this Weight Watchers PLAN work. I have posted a lot of ideas but never anything to make me stick to it. All you type A runner people out there, How do you make your plans? How do you make yourself stick to it? How do you adjust when the plan doesn't work?
(yes I am that inept in planning things dealing with myself)
C25K on deck for this evening. I may redo week one because of extreme temp changes and still dealing with some foot shenanigans.
