Pressing the reset switch… August 22, 2006 at 10:54 am

Tenacity.  I need to keep on keeping on.  Yesterday was a bit disconcerting for me.  Not insurmountable by any means, just a little frustrating.  I don’t like it when things go wrong. I prefer a smoother flow and less turbulence.  Unfortunately life doesn’t come at you spoon-fed  most of the time and the real trick is dealing with your setbacks and moving forward without succumbing to the confusion and alarm.  It is easier said than done.  The first step is recognizing that you are going into the “rat hole” and realizing that there is an end to the issue.  If you don’t recognize this then your stress level goes way up.

Part of my reasons for writing about my experiences is for me to be able to reflect upon my moods and feelings during the 20/20 Lifestyles program at the Pro Club.  It also allows me to be a little introspective and get a hold on my feelings a bit more than I would if I kept everything to myself.

My dietician responded to my letter from the weekend in a positive manner.  This helped me overcome the impure thoughts I was having about my meal tracking.   I basically did things right.  My fear was that I had done something wrong.  There was a level of uncertainty with regard to how I have tracked the recipes caloric counts.  I doubted that I had done it correctly because it was so delicious.

While my mood is improved I will have to take things one day at a time and not get too worried if I make a mistake.   I DO like the regimented approach as too much flexibility gives me a lot of rope to hang myself with.

All is good in the land of Ernie’s brain.
