Holiday and a healthy lifestyle

Wow it's been a while since I blogged. I really need to find some balance in my life. I have so many things on the go and so little time to do them! Right now I am trying to finish off 2 quilts that I have been working on for years..and by years, I mean at least 3 years. See the problem is, I'm a prefectionist. If I start something and I don't think it's good enough, then I will put it down and not finish. I am finding this applies to many areas of my life, not just the crafts. Like implementing a healthy lifestyle. When I mess up, I usually say "f*ck it" and quit, well because if I don't get it right, then what's the point? But that's not the way to go. I know I just have to keep going and not worry about the mistakes and just keep plugging away.

So I've decided (once again) to give WW a go and really really try very hard to stay on-plan (OP) and when I eat something I shouldn't, I'm going to try really hard not to let it defeat me. The same goes for the gym and exercise. So if I miss a day due to "whatever", I have to remind myself that it's ok and just keep going. Gosh it's so hard NOT to beat myself up when I mess

I was ready a blog today by someone who goes by a "Prior Fat Girl" and she is approaching her 2 year mark and 100 pounds lost. Gosh I want that to be me in 2 years from now. I need to lost abou 70 pounds but at my age, it will likely take 2 years to get there...but that's ok. That will give me another 40 years of being healthy to enjoy life, right? And of course I will be enjoying life all the while.....go me!!!!!
