Systems Are Go 👍

I was so exhausted yesterday by the end of the work day. I fell asleep in my chair. I had a Lori appointment I was really too tired for. Didn’t post. Stopped tracking altogether. Ate like a horse.

Lucky for me it’s not reflected on the scale.

Unlucky for me was my shirt, yesterday. Usually it never fails me. Oh well. You can’t win them all.

I think one of the cool things about Atomic Habits is that he says right in it, you can’t be a perfectionist.

He describes it like this. Every action you take is a vote for or against a habit. You’re always going to have at least a few votes on both sides. Just as long as you have a majority on the side that matters, the side you want, you’re good.

So I can call last night a vote for my old splurging habit and not tracking habit and be done with it.

Today, I can cast another vote for tracking and staying somewhere relatively close to my healthy eating zone (blue dot).

And tomorrow I can cast another vote for those things, and so on, and before I know it, I’ll be half my original size.

Well, okay, maybe not half. 25%?

That would be a very good weight for me, actually. I’m not going to tell you. But it would be just slightly over what those stupid BMI charts say is healthy for a woman my age, height, and build.

But I’m not going to focus on my goal right now, anyway. I’m going to work on my systems. It’s all about the systems.

Have to go now. Locals, please drive safely if you must drive at all. Stay safe, warm, and dry. Take good care. Thanks for reading. ❤️
