up or down/ on or off

In last night's TOPS lesson, we discussed a light switch. It is usually either on (up) or off (down). It is POSSIBLE to balance it in the middle but what's the point in that and what's the reward for that effort? Nothing.

And so it is with our health journey. Most of the time we are either on target or off target. Sometimes we go through a great effort to be in the middle---aka---kind of trying but also kind of just doing what we want. What's the profit in that? Sadly, I think that's where I am.


Today's stats demonstrate it:

Calories: 727 over (all because I didn't pre-plan meals, couldn't find full, and wanted sweets late in the day. Seriously, if I were truly "on", I would have said "Well, too bad. Suck it up buttercup, because you aren't going over your calorie limit)

Fruits and veggies: 4

Water: 60 ounces

Exercise: none

See what I mean, Vern?

Tonight I am very frustrated with myself. Being "in the middle" does NOTHING but waste time and energy and "ain't nobody got time for that."

  1. Actually, I think being in the middle in regards to weight loss is maintenance. And that is very important too. Sometimes when life is wild it is better to be in the middle, than all the way off :)
