Day 3 Of A 100 Days of My Weight Loss Journey With Linda Spangle's Book

Monday, July 28, 2014


Today is my third on this 100 Days journey. I woke up with my allergies all mess up and with some asthma. The Sahara Desert Dust cloud over PR is making things worst for me, so today had been a really bad day for me.

I finished reading Day #3, but I feel so upset after reading it that I have not been able to do the writing work for today. In her suggestions for today's assignment, Linda sounds so much like my mother when I was a teenager, with her "no matter what, do it anyway" sound so much like my mom perfectionism in everything; cleaning the house, cooking, doing the dishes, doing the laundry, sweeping, moping and so forth, everything was "no matter what". She droves my sister and me crazy; no matter if we had homework to do, no matter if we were tired, no matter if we wanted to do other thing, and everything had to be perfect and we still need to obtain straight A's at school, no matter what. We have to be the good girls, the good friends, the good daughters, the good students, and so forth.

So today I have not find the energy or desire to do the assignment. I wish I can say, or write, right away, the list of actions I plan to stick with, regardless of how I feel, but I I am not up to more of this in my new life style, in this Spark journey, in my weight loss process, it will put it into jeopardy. So I'll skip today's assignment and will go on with the 100 days challenge tomorrow with Day 4. That is the best I can do today, with I have in my hands and my soul. I am not quitting I am just skipping this assignment so please do not judge me.

    Feeling bad and running into a sore subject would definitely make for a bad day. Skip the writing for the day or write something about perfectionism is nearly impossible and you'll just do the best you can. Feel better soon!

    Obviously this phrase hits a sore spot with you and you should skip it. It's only one assignment.

    You do what you need to do! If skipping today's assignment is the healthier option to maintain your sanity and rid yourself of the all or nothing attitude (that attitude is the perfect recipe for failure--something is always better than nothing,), than that is the right choice for you!

    Hopefully, tomorrow will bring you some peace. You can do it!
